Can I use eye drops to treat the redness from pink eye? I'm using an antibiotic cream from my doctor to cure my pink eye, but it doesn't treat the redness. Is it safe to use visine or something similar to make my eyes less bloodshot?

I recommend using less irritating preservative-free artificial tears such as refresh to help improve the redness. This will be a slow but less irritating process. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Zylet : Zylet is an unusual medication for a corneal ulcer. And infect, it is the wrong medicine for you. You are already on gentamicin and the active antibiotic in zylet is tobrmycin which is a same class of medicine as gentamicin. You will be served better with ciprofoloxacin than zylet.
