I used just two drops of visine A and i'm experiencing blurred vision, halos around lights, floater and some discomfort. I stopped using it and it's been 24 hours and those are the only side effects I am experiencing How long will these side effects last or should I go and see a doctor

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

They should have gone away by now.

Dr. Rick :

I think it would be best for you to see an ophthalmologist just to make sure that nothing serious is going on. What do I mean by "serious"? Well, very rarely, drops like visine A that can dilate your pupils can cause a form of glaucoma called angle I said this is very rare but it doesn't hurt to have things checked out

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
