Eye lid drooping

Hello. I’m Rick. I was wondering about an issue with my left eye drooping when I get up in the morning. Someone mentioned it could be an eye allergy so I bought Visine allergy drops and it helps for like 3 hours then it starts to droop again, then I put the drops in and it’s fixed again. Just wanted some opinions. Also, I forgot to mention my eyebrow moves upward towards my hair and when I use the drops it relaxes again. Thanks for any thoughts. ## Have you consulted your medical care provider? Do you have any diagnosed medical conditions? Do you take any medications on a regular basis? The FDA lists the typical optical issues from allergies as including eye redness, tearing, itching, and general irritation, but drooping it not a normal issue associated with them. How much s...

Replacement for Visine L.R. w/oxymetazoline.

Opcon A eye drops work well for a short time. I haven't found any eye drops to replace Visine L.R. that have the lasting effects. Help! ## Hi Jerry - you might want to check out another discussion on this since it already has a lot of people posting in it: Visine LR Discontinued (Newest posts first). Hope this helps! ## If you only need them occasionally, use what I use —although it's Rx Only (in practice, a local doc visits a local pharmacy and we buy it OTC or if we have Rx coverage, bring a script) —TOBRADEX (generic available: TOBRAMYCIN and DEXAMETHASONE. Not for daily use. Very effective and the generic is expensive; I use my RX coverage to pay for 3 x 5mL and noted that the retail would be close to $300, ad that;s for the Sandoz generic. Im not an ophthalmolog...

Can You Use Visine While Using Vigamox

I have been using vigamox 3 times a day, my eyes get dry and a little irritated between doses just wanted to know if I could use visine LR in between the vigamox to help with the dryness and irritation? ## Yes you can use both of these eye drops together. Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between the ingredients in Visine L.R. and Vigamox. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. You can view more details about these medications by visiting the links below: I hope this helps!

Visine LR

Are there other eye drops that use the same ingredients that Visine LR does? ## I just listed this in another post, the active ingredient Oxymetazoline can also be found in Claritin Allergy Relief Eye Drops and in Ocuclear. Do you have any other questions? ## Claritin ophthalmic solution contains as the active ingredient ketotifen ## I noticed that there are other allergy products on the market which contain the same key ingredient as Visine LR called Oxymetazoline. The only thing is that they come as a nasal spray and the proportion of Oxymetazoline is a higher dose. Here is an example: Visine LR contained Oxymetazoline HCl 0.025% as the active ingredient along with Benzalkonium Chloride, Boric Acid, Edetate Disodium, Purified Water, Sodium Borate, and Sodium Chloride as the inactive i...
