Hello,,, yes chicken pox could cause conjunctivitis, it to called by the virus, which usually requires only symptomatic treatment as it improves on itself. If you are taking antivirals it is good it improves faster. Ciprofloxacin is a antibiotic drop,, here the main idea is to prevent secondary bacterial infection of eye so as complications, if you are already improving and symptoms are coming down then don't worry, you will be alright in less than a week, if your symptoms or worsening and eye problem increasing then, antivirals should be considered, Consult your doctor.
