The length of time depends on the cause. Pink eye is a generic term for inflammation of the conjunctiva (white part of the eye). This inflammation can be from a number of causes, not all of them infectious. The majority of causes will heal without treatemnt in 2-3 weeks but it is generally prudent to see your eye doctor to ensure that no treatement is required.

"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.

How long before the symptoms of pink eye start until you actually get infected?

Depends on the cause

Conjunctivitis
Pink eye is a term used to describe a red irritated eye. This can result from viruses, allergies, bacterial and irritants such as chemicals. To know when the symptoms start, we have to know the cause. For viruses and bacteria, it can be anywhere from 1-7 days post exposure (or longer depending on the organism).
