Having been diagnosed with viral conjuctivitis B

Hi sir, My ophthalmologist said i have viral conjuctivitie B and he has given me following medicines
i) add tears (carboxymethylcellulose sodium lubricant 0.5% v/v
II) Flurbiprofen sodium ophthalmic solution
III) ofloxacin ophthalmic solution
but my friend has used for this problem a solution named as phenylephrine hydrochloride,naphazoline hydrochloride, menthol and camphor ophthalmic solutio which one is good.
i find the second one (phenylephrine hydrochloride,naphazoline hydrochloride, menthol and camphor ophthalmic solutio) is better is it safe to use this?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
for viral conjunctivitis it's only decrease viral load and symptomatic treatment...
better you put add tears 1hourly...
if comfortable with naphazoline then you can put it but I never prescribe it to my patients....
just put add tears and ofloxacin drops.......
do frequent eye washing or cleaning with water.
do not touch hand of one eye to other...frequent hand washing
keep your clothing clean...
if problem persist after 2 day you can start fml eye drop for symptomatic relief
take care
I hope I answered your query
thanks
