I have pinkeye. I went to see my doc but could only get to the PA. He said yup that was what it was and perscribed ointment for it. I told him I had to fly out of town in about 48 hours for meetings all next week. He said I was gtg.

Last time I had this the doc told me to stay away from people and not to travel.
Any ideas as to the different advice.

The previous doctor was more cautious.

Conjunctiva is pretty easily passed. You have to be careful not to pass it to the other eye from something as simple as rubbing one eye then the next.

It's not life threatening, more of an inconvenience. You're GTG.

Wash your hands after you drop a log

make sure you wash your hands often, especially when they have been near your face. and make sure you wash your hands before AND after you use the eye ointment

What a great situation.

If the person next to you sits too close just start talking about the pinkeye. I think I'm going to catch pinkeye before every flight from now on.
