From what I can discover, it seems it has been discontinued, however, on their website, they list the active ingredient as being Oxymetazoline.

Ironically, it is not used in any of their other products.

I am not finding a lot of over the counter products that contain it, however, Claritin Eye Allergy Relief Drops have it and so does Ocuclear.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hey, I just found Visine LR at my local Walgreens today! Perhaps they've resumed production.

Not all Walgreens carry the visine LR, which means that they are just selling what stock they have left. Not sure why visine stopped making this brand. I don't like anything else. Need the oxymetazoline

Only thing that works for my wife...Seems the FDA issued a warning several years ago about kids under 5 DRINKING this... so everyone overreacted and has discontinued it... STUPID STUPID STUPID. If the dumb kids drink it, jail the parents !! So tired of this type action... so make it for ADULTS ONLY.

Afrin nasal spray also uses Oxymatazoline Hydrochloride. Haven't tried it yet but I'm gonna try. It's 0.05% as opposed to the 0.025% level in Visine. It's also about $8 for a 1-ounce bottle so way cheaper than Visine.

Screw Visine and J&J for not listening to their customers.

I've switched to Bausch and Lomb advanced eye relief (Redness instant relief) it has Naphazoline . Doesn't work as well nor last all day but it helps.

Hello,

For everyone on this link, there is another conversation going on in the same exact webpage about Visine LR being discontinued, see:

Discuss/Visine-LR-Discontinued-200960.htm

I have started a petition on change.org to bring this product back, see:

change.org/p/johnson-johnson-bring-back-visine-long-lasting-redness-relief-visine-lr

Please sign it if you are inclined and read our current postings on the above link.

Thank you!

I started using opcon A by Bausch &Lomb. It sorta stings a little, but does work. Contains Naphazoline HCI. I also emailed Visine and they said the same thing: discontinued, but would alert marketing team. Whatevs.

Over the weekend I tried Afrin nasal spray that also that contains Oxymatazoline as Carlos mentioned earlier. It worked very well, and it lasted a long time. What worries me is that Afrin not sterilized so I only tried it once. According to a pharmacist that I spoke with, using Afrin is just like putting water in your eyes. That means it's possible to get an infection if bacteria is present. I'm pretty sure I get water in my eyes all the time in the shower. Does anyone know more about the risks?

I also tried Opcon-A (contains Naphazoline) and got decent results. I might use this for the mean time, but I still like Oxymatazoline better.

Well, I just shelled out $120 USD for 3 bottles on ebay. Today was my first day in years going without the visine with Oxymetazoline and my eyes are completely red, I look like a monster. I've been using Visine Triple Action today and it does absolutely nothing, in fact might even make it worse. I'm sure I'll be putting the nasal spray in my eyes once these 3 bottles run out.

Mike,

I think we all know and agree that it is outrageous what sellers are charging for remaining bottles of Visine LR! I worry though about putting nasal sprays in my nose. I don't know if this is safe? I will be sending my petition on change.org to Johnson and Johnson soon to ask them to please bring Visine LR back to the market. I don't know if it will help but I feel at least I need to try.

Hey fellow oxymetazoline users. it feels like a crime to stop making Visine LR and workplace. I've signed the petition. i'm going to call j and j as well. We need an organized social media plan. there must be thousands of others.
