In brief: You can't
In short, if you have " pink eye" you are probably referring to a viral infection which is typically self-limiting.

In brief: Don't bother
Doctors love seeing patients looking their worst! actually, it helps us a great deal to see patients in their natural condition.
If an eye is red, we think about one group of diseases, while if the eye is white we think of others. If your pink eye improved, you could throw off the doctor, and anyway you wouldn't need to be seen! also, pink eye will improve with or without treatment anyway.
