Theratears are good, as are bion tears

You want to make sure not to use any drops that say "for getting the red out" as these can just irritate your eyes more.

Makes sense to you?

I still feel my eyes heavy and vision somewhat blurry. Is using tears suppose to sharpen vision and make it less blury and eyes feel less heavy? Would keeping using them every 2-3 hours eventually make a differrence as opposed to using them once or twice a day?

yes. that could help

If you get the preservative free type you can use the drops as much as you want.
