Visine LR Alternative is Opcon-A!

I used Visine LR for over 20 years. Since its discontinuation, I've researched many eye drops and their ingredients. The only one that works amazingly, is Opcon-A! The oxymetazoline is absent but nephazoline is just as effective. My eyes are not red and lasts long periods. Thank goodness because I thought I would never find an alternative. ## I agree with Inna. I buy the Opcon-A from Amazon as an alternative to Visine LR. You get two bottles for under $9.00 and it works similar to Visine LR. ## @Inna, I appreciate the heads up on the replacement for Visine LR. There's a actually pretty popular discussion thread here on the topic of Visine LR with many people from around the world searching for an alternative. I think if you were to repost this over there as well, a lot of them w...

Has anyone found Visine L.R. or (Oxymetazoline HCI Eye Drops) which is the active ingredient in VIsine L.R. which makes it work SO well. PLEASE let me know when someone either has found the product, it's equivalent or heard from Visine.com about whether or not they will continue to sell this product. ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. From what I've found, it has been discontinued and there is no news on them bringing it back.

Has anyone else found anything that works as well? ## Please any info on Visine LR would be appreciated. Their is no other one that can help my husband. ## Bu...

I placed an order for 2 but i am not optimistic that I will actually receive them. Good luck ## I still can't find Visine LR. I've checked all on-line options and my local stores in Northern California. I'd appreciate any tips. I'm very dependent on this product. It's all that helps me anymore. ## I was able to get an equivalent to these eye drops made at a compounding pharmacy. I went to Compounded Solutions in Pharmacy. Their phone number is 203-268-4964. Hope this helps!! ## From what I can discover, it seems it has been discontinued, however, on their website, they list the active ingredient as being O...
