Frequently asked questions

Is pink eye contagious?

Pink eye has different causes. If it’s caused by allergies, it isn’t contagious. But with viral or bacterial pink eye you’re typically considered contagious until the eye stops tearing and creating a discharge. Pink eye readily spreads to others by direct contact with the eye drainage or by touching contaminated items. The best way to prevent the spread of pink eye is to stay home until symptoms ease or until 24 hours after starting treatment. If you can’t stay home, limit your contact with others, wash your hands often and try not to touch your eyes.

Is it safe to get pink eye treatment online?

Yes. Our online clinic follows the best standards used by traditional clinics and hospitals. If there’s ever any indication your condition is more serious, we’ll give you a referral to in-person care. There’s no charge for that advice, and it’s a rare occurrence. Pink eye is very common and treatable.

When do you need antibiotics for pink eye?

Antibiotics will help clear up bacterial infections. Viral pink eye won’t respond to antibiotics, but we’ll help diagnose your condition and provide the most effective treatment plan.
