Eyes looked way better after one day of using this. Pink eye cleared up after a couple days. Its annoying to drop gel into the eyelid, but whatever, it worked!

My experience has been easy. My only concern is that I wasn't told how long I should use this. After 4 days it looks and feels better.

Comment:
I have had pinkeye several times, and this ointment, by far, has been the worst treatment option! The thick gel makes the eyes blurry for quite some time, and produces more watering and discomfort than I've ever experienced while using drops. I hate this stuff!
