Though eye drops can reduce inflammation after eye surgeries, to relieve conjunctivitis and dry eye, there are side effects of using eye drops. Using too much eye drops will lead to infection. If you use it for a long time, it will reduce your eyes ability to fight against infection or repair itself after injury. Besides, some of may experiences itching, burning, stinging, irritation or redness as well as sensitive to light and blurred vision etc.
It is true that salt water is very good for pink eyes. As to pink eyes, it is called conjunctivitis in medical term. There are three types of conjunctivitis based on three different triggers, bacteria, virus and allergies. The common symptoms of conjunctivitis include redness, increased sensitivity to light, secretion and grittiness and so on. Allergic conjunctivitis don't last long, as long as you are away from allergen, it could heal up very soon. Bacterial and viral conjunctivitis last longer. With saline solution, which is disinfectant, we can wash eyes thoroughly, which can make you feel much better. It washed secretion out of eyes, and the crust formed around eyes. It could help clear up the infections quickly. Using an eye cup filled with saline water to wash eyes or applying some drops into eyes both are helpful. Besides of saline solution, you can use breast milk in the same way for little babies. This is recommended by many nurses, who told me it is much better than antibiotics medication.
if the gym that you go is a public one, I would recommend maybe taking a few days off since you could easily transfer it to other gym goers by touching the equipment if your hands are contaminated from rubbing your eye.

yes,toothpaste can be used to remove minor scratches from an eyeglass lens.
Rub the toothpaste on the inner and outer surfaces of each lens with a cloth made of cotton, a cloth works particularly well to clean eyeglasses. Lightly rub the cloth using small,circular motions.continue buffing lenses gently for about 10 seconds.
Rinse off the toothpaste with lukewarm water,and then wipe dry with a soft,clean,lint-free cloth.
Repeat the process again if you are trying to remove stubborn scratches.eyeglass lenses that have an anti scratch coating may take it more difficult to reach the scratch.

But on the other hand, if you wear them when you go to sleep, it will be harm to your eyes, for your eyes need to breathe and circle lenses are usually on the thicker side.

Optic neuritis is the inflammation of the optic nerve that may cause a complete or partial loss of vision. The optic nerve comprises axons that emerge from the retina of the eye and carry visual information to the primary visual nuclei, most of which is relayed to the occipital cortex of the brain to be processed into vision. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a low blood level of vitamin B12, which can cause permanent damage to nervous tissue if left untreated long enough and it also can cause optic neuritis.
