In brief: Clean and treat

If you are sure you have bacterial infection of the conjunctiva, then it seems that you have been to an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) who has made this diagnosis and given you antibiotic eyedrops for treatment.
If crusting and exudate (like pus) are the only reasons for visual drop, then you can keep the eyes clean with warm soaks applied every time the vision drops.
