No: Red eye drops often irritate the eyes more. Also, the eyes become more red when the effect of the drop wears off. I don't recommend using "red eye" drops at any time.

Hemorrhage: Sounds like a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. As long as the vision is unchanged and there is no pain, everything should be fine. This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up with eye md. Could be episcleritis, use artificial tears.See 1 more doctor answer

I've had pink eye for about 2 and half weeks. Went to doc doctor last week, took tobramycin, now still have a red eye. What to do?
6 yr old has congestion, low fever, cough & red eye. No crust or discharge but it does get watery. Is it likely pink eye or possibly something else?
Eyedrops: 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 to deal with a corneal ulcer I went to the outpatient clinic yesterday because I had pain in my eye, redness, and sensitivity to light. Thought perhaps pink eye but the doctor there told me it was small corneal ulcer. He prescribed two eye drops, ci
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. Zylet also has steroid in it, which makes it a wrong medicine for corneal ulcer. You said you went to see "opt", I presume that you mean optometrist. I strongly recommend seeing an ophthalmologist. If you can find a cornea specialist that will be better. Good luck.See 2 more doctor answers

Itching: Both pink eye (a highly contagious infection most often caused by viruses) and allergy eyes can be red, have copious amounts of drainage, and be mattered shut in the mornings. Itching may be the best way to differentiate between the two. Itch is a hallmark for allergic reactions; not much else involves the eyes, ears, nose, and throat like allergies. A doctor can help tell the difference too.See 1 more doctor answer
