is it harmful to use visine every day? if so, why???
i use the visine for allergies and have been using it 1 to 4 times a day for years and someone told me recently that it is very bad for you.....????

sure, it's not good for you.
You might want to ask your doctor about restasis, I heard it really helps.
I've used refresh before - because I have contacts, my eye doc said the contact formula and the regular formula are the same, so you might want to give that a try if you're looking for something good that's OTC

Eye drops with preservatives can irritate your eyes if you use them too often. If you need to use eye drops every day, you should try to find the individually packaged ones without the preservatives in them.

Try Artificial Tears, I wouldn't think it would be good to use visine that often.

yes, its bad for you:


Visine is not recommended by eye doctors because it contains chemicals that constrict your blood vessels - making it appear that your eyes are less red. Over time this chemical can cause rebound redness which is often worse than the eyes were before.
Other drops that are great are systane and refresh tears. These and the drops mentioned above are perfectly safe for continuous use as often as you like.

Yes extended use of visine and similar products is not good for your eyes. Visine does not fix any problems, it just temporarily masks the redness in your eyes by constricting the blood flow.
Vasoconstrictors like Visine cut off the much needed blood flow and can cause some serious problems with prolonged and excessive use. Also those who excessively use visine are actually making their eyes worse.... using it too much will actually cause your eyes to be red all the time and the visine will not help you anymore..... you need to speak to your doctor/eye doctor about your eyes and allergy issues to see what they would recommend for you. I would seriously recommend you discontinue use of any vasoconstrictor product and see a doctor :)
