Welcome to Just Answer

Does Visine help in clearing the eyes?

Is the redness only in the exposed part of the white of the eye? If you lift the upper lid , how is the white of the upper part ( which is covered by the upper lid)?

Do you have any other symptom such as burning sensation/ watering/pricking sensation ?

Thank for the reply

Visine helps as a decongesant due to its vasoconstrictive effect on the blood vessels. If it does not help much , another vasoconstrictive with longer action such as oxymetazoline can be tried ( available as Ocuclear eye drops or visine .L.R eye drops ) , 1 drop twice a day. For soothening effect it is better to add lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears , 1 drop 4 times a day.

Thanks and best wishes
