an over the counter eye drop that starts with T ## Based on my research, I only came across two brands that started with a T. I can't say however, if these are the only one's on the market that begin with this letter: -"Tears" Naturale Free Lubricant Eye Drops, 60 Single-Use Vials -"TheraTears" Lubricant Eye Drops, Single-Use Containers TheraTears appears to be a common brand here in the U.S.; so I think it's a good match. Was there anything in particular that was special about this brand of eye drops you're looking for? ## I feels pain in eyeballs with tears. Eyes got reddish and iching. I spend lot of time in computer work. ...

prefrin eye drops
1 Reply RSS Share
I have been trying to find Prefrin as well. I used to use it in the 80's & early 90' then it just went away from the stores. I do know that it was made in South Ft. Worth by Alcon Labs. It is still available ???? It was the BEST eye redness relief product on the market... Thanks ## From what I've been seeing on the web, I don't think it's still being manufactured anymore. However you may want to look into what's called a "compounding pharmacy". I don't know all of what goes into it, but apparently these types of places can formulate something for you, provided that you have a valid prescription for it. The list of ingredients contained in Prefrin Eye Drops are: Phenylephrine hydrochloride (1,2 mg/mL) + Liquifilm [polyvinyl alcohol] (14 mg/mL) + Be... ...

Vigamox 0.5 eye dropszoD
1 Reply RSS Share
How close together can theses drops be used the day before catarac surgery ## Because every surgeon has their own unique set of rules to follow before and after the operation it would be best to schedule an appointment with the surgeon to ask him directly. When you schedule a consultation prior to the surgery, remind them to discuss medications that you may or may not take, any prescriptions and how to use them, and how to prepare for the day of your surgery. Additionally, the surgeon usually gives the patient a list of pre and post operative care instructions to follow before going in. These instructions include what you should and should not be taking prior to and after the surgery. If you did not receive this I would ask them well before going in. I hope this helps! ...

Eye drops with Azelastine
Post a Reply Share
I was using Bausch + Lomb eye drops for years with good results. Then insurance companies made me switch to generic Azelastine HCI by Apotex Corp and in the past 3-years I'm sure there were other manufactures because the bottle has not always looked the same. I've discussed the terrible side effects with Generic brand. I'm told it's the same as B&L but it's not. This Apotex Corp burned or stung so bad that I jumped in the shower with my clothes on. I've always put a drop on my inside wrist and wait a day before ever putting liquid in my eye and though this is not a full proof way of knowing if the drops will burn it certainly makes me feel a little more at ease before using. I never had a broblem until generic and now I'm using/trying many over the counte... ...

Prefrin Eye Drops For Red Eyes
19 Replies RSS Share
Ophthalmologist prescribed PREFRIN eye drops for red eyes nearly 20 years ago. Is it available now? My problem is allergic in nature (itchy eyes = angular conjunctivitis mild at inner angles of eyes ). Appreciate response from OLD-TIMERS. ## I have had prefrin prescribed approximately 25 years ago and I use this daily although cautioned by optomotrists that this could lead to a permanent red vessel eye condition. I do however find these drops comfortable to use and the removal of red in my eyes. I can no longer find this product and pharmacies all indicate"out of stock". I assume that the product is no longer available and perhaps I could be informed of a replacement or alternative product. Information would greatly be appreciated. ## I used to use Prefrin in the 80's & ... ...

Eye Drop Application
1 Reply RSS Share
I was just hoping for a few responses on what people found most annoying or inconvenient about putting in eye drops. I am attempting to design a new way of going about the process and any response is appreciated. ## I am really touchy over my eyes - I don't think I'd ever be able to put in contacts or anything like that. When using eye drops I have a really hard time keeping my eye open while waiting for the drop to fall in, so a lot of the time I have to squeeze it so that multiple drops will come out so that I can get at least a bit of the fluid in my eye. Hope this helps. ...

What Is The Side Effect Of Pred Met Eye Drops If Used For Long Duration
1 Reply RSS Share
My son is suffering from arthritis! He is also suffering from UVITIS (eye disease). Eye Specialistr has prescribed pred met eye drops. He is using the drops last two years. Is there any side effect ? ## Pred is an excellent drug but only to be used for a very, very short time -- max 4 days and on the 4th day only 1/2 is given, not the full amount. My Rheumatologist gave me 10 mg for a year and my bones fell apart. Now I'm getting poison to try to get some bone mass back. The MD's have what they call 'medpacks' of Pred. and taken in that short of time should cause no harm. There has to be something else that would help the situation he is in other than Pred. Just because it's excellent does not mean in the least that it is healthy or a wise decision. ...

Terramicina - Does It Go In The Eye Or Around?
2 Replies RSS Share
I have pink eye. Can I use terramicina in my eye as a salve, or just around the eye? ## I think it really depends on whether or not you have the ointment, powder or the eye drops. There should be instructions on the package, no? That's just wrong if there isn't, as from what I can tell it can be used to treat pink eye. Based on information i've gathered, the application guidelines are simple. Listed below are the indications for the ointment: "Broad-spectrum antibiotic ideal for mild bacterial eye infections Easy to use - simply apply ointment directly on the affected area" I'm assuming that the eye drops are no different other than actually dropping it into your eye. Here is an information link to the powdered form of this medication as well (it states: puff pow... ...

eyedrops prescribed for eye injury. ## Drug Information for Tetracaine This medication is used in the eye as an anesthetic to numb the pain that may occur during eye procedures. To apply eye drops, wash hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Tilt your head back, gaze upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place dropper directly over eye and administer the prescribed number of drops. Look downward and gently close your eye for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye. Try not to blink initially and do not rub the eye. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace cap after use. If you are u... ...

July 19th battery acid got in my eye. Have been on many meds, but am now only on Vigamox drops and doxy-cycl hyc 50mg cap mutual. Was told I had Roseacea. Am I on the right track to healing? ## Hi Mae, I'm very sorry to hear about the battery acid incident with your eye. I couldn't even begin to fathom how that might've felt, but one thing that doesn't add up in my mind is how rosacea (i.e. reddening or swelling of the skin) correlates with battery acid in your eye..? Did some of the acid get on your face/skin too? Vigamox (moxifloxacin) on the other hand is used to treat bacterial infections in the eyes, so that to me seems like an appropriate course of action if an infection has been confirmed. Doxycycline is also used to treat a variety of bacterial infections...where... ...

How often may this product be applied? ## Hello, Penny! How are you? These are listed by Walgreens as just being lubricating drops for dry eye, so the instructions are to use as needed. Short of using the entire bottle in a day, I don't think you'll really overdo it, unless your doctor has said otherwise. The FDA lists the most common side effects as possibly including eye redness, irritation and tearing. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
