Two days ago I was diagnosed with bacterial pink eye and was prescribed Ciloxan. Am I allowed to go in the sun while having pink eye? I live in Florida and was thinking of laying out in my back yard, since I am pretty much confined to my house for the next few days until my pink eye subsides.

Yes, you can sit in the sun. The sun will not impact the pink eye. Bacterial pink eye is unusual compared to the viral form.
