"Pink eye," a.k.a. viral conjunctivitis, like any virus tends to have an incubation period, which is usually on the order of days following exposure. If you develop symptoms, it's best to see an ophthalmologist to confirm the diagnosis, as there are many problems that can resemble pink eye.

Pink eye - what are the symptoms and how long does it take for the symptoms to show up?

Pink eye!

Pink_eye
Lots of reasons for "pink" eye or "red" eye. Infections, both viral & bacterial, are common causes of conjunctivitis. Patients typically complain of an irritation, sometimes gritty, sometimes burning, often w/purulent discharge such that their lids are glued shut in the morning & crusted over. Visual acuity should not be affected. When exposed, one can develop symptoms in hours to days.

What causes rid if pink eye fast?

Pink eye

There is no way to cure pink eye quickly. The more common viral infections will often last 7-10 days no matter what you treat them with. Bacterial pink eye (usually with thicker drainage) may resolve more quickly with antibiotic drops.

How to reduce pink-eye redness fast--Visine?

Eyedrops

Pink_eye
If you need to get rid of the redness for instance for a picture, you can use drops labeled "gets the red out". However this is a temporary effect and will not work well if the cause is infectious pink eye. You may have to wait it out and if your vision is affected or there is significant pain due to your red eye, you probably should see your ophthalmologist for evaluation.

How would doctors recommend I treat pink eye really fast?

Viral conjunctivitis

Open-uri20130416-30945-1kopra6
Viral infection on the inner part of the eyelid and thin moist "skin"covering the eyeball-called the conjunctiva is called "conjunctivitis." You infect your eye when you touch a surface (or person) with the virus and rub your eye-transfering the virus. Frequent hand washing helps prevent this. Sharing towels or pillows can also cause infection. Antibiotics don't work. Just time 7-14 days

How can i get rid of my pink eye very fast without eye drops?

Give it time

Open-uri20130501-19051-p7lbk4
Most "pinkeye" or conjunctivitis is actually viral, so antibiotic eye drops are usually not effective. Viral conjunctivitis tends to run it's course in 7-10 days. It can be very contagious, spreading from one eye to the other or to other people. Hand washing is essential. To be certain it is not a more serious bacterial or fungal infection, you should see an ophthalmologist.
