Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
what eye drop exactly do you use 10 times daily ? How many times a day do you use Visine (formulation to get the red out) ?
I am using the most before --SYSTANE for a long times, then my eye Dr. suggest me may be switch to other brand for dry eye, he gave me different sample for eye drop, like .Refresh ultra, Refresh tears, Refresh Liqu gel (he told me this gel one best to use before bed time)
for such dry eye, I suggest a preservative free formulation such as the Celluvisc by Refresh. This is something you can use many times a day without the risk of the preservatice causing some irritation. If you are truly using these products so often, it makes sense to consider punctal plugs (tiny silicone plugs) that keep the tears on the surface of the eyes. Also restasis is definitely something that should be considered. It will help you make more tears naturally. Anytime, any of my patients use drops more than 3 times a day, I feel they deserve to be on aggressive therapy for their dry eye. you need to discuss these 2 options with your ophthalmologist, no need to suffer as you do, I wish you well, Dr. Stevens

Hi Dr. Stevens,
As your suggestion < I have started the eye drop from Refresh, yes only used one time last night. It certainly different feeling. I should be find out the diffent after one week. But here again, what will be the worst case, if I keep using the Vision ( the workplace, for Red eyes) , may be once a day ?
Your replay is much appreciated :)
