Brief Answer:
Eye drops can be used for long period

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

As per youe query yes these eyedrops can be used for a long period of times.Usually over week till conjunctivitis limits itself.
However Tab Allegra can be taken once daily along with it which is an antihistaminic.
If not relieved in 3-5 days a swab should be taken from eye to rule out bacterial conjunctivitis.
Thanks
