Suggest treatment for conjunctivitis

I am an 19 year old student. A week back, i was diagnosed with conjuctivitis. Doctor prescribed me CM Applicaps and Moxisurge. After four days, there was no improvement and my eyes were still red and there was irritation and pain. So i went to him again and he told me to stop that medication and use dexoren-s thrice a day. It didn work and aftr two days i went to him and told me to use refresh tears and keep using dexoren-s.
Still it did not cause any effect and i went to him. He now says cornea is also involved now.. it is viral keratitis.
He prescribed me refresh tears hourly , dexoren-s morning and night, and panthegel ointment that too morning and night.
Will this medicine work this time because im really getting tensed and frustrated.
Can i attend my college or should i stay back at home? How long will it take to cure this ?
Please help me

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having conjunctivitis and on treatment with eye drops in the form of antibiotic eye drops like Moxisurge and antibiotic- steroid eye drops like Dexoren-S and artificial tears.
Since cornea is also involved the treatment will take 1-3 months for complete cure. The treatment is in right direction and you need to continue it.
Hope this is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
I find this answer helpful
