Predominantly viral: Your child's signs are most likely due to a viral infection. I advise a checkup with an ophthalmologist to reassure that it's not seriously affecting the eye in a way that may require antibiotics, as i'm a bacterial infection. Most viral conjunctivitis clears up on its own in 7-10 days with conservative treatment. Avoid contaminating yourself ; others. ...Read more

I went to an eye doctor to get my prescription checked and he asked me to put some drops in my eyes. Is this normal?

Yes.: Drops used during a comprehensive eye exam usually include an anesthetic, and one or two dilating drops. It is normal and allows measurement of pressure and dilation of pupils. Also, eye doctors will do a "wet" refraction or refraction while fully dilated. This allows neutralization of accommodation that can throw off refractions. ...Read more
