In brief: Depends

If you have classic adult pink eye, which is viral, then you most likely have one of the viruses lasting 3-10 days with complete resolution.
If you have one of the less common viruses which also cause immune deposits on the cornea (ekc) it might last longer and require short to long term topical steroids. The other type does not respond to antibiotics. Your ophthalmologist can diagnosis / treat.
