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. ...

Here's a few that I found: Prednisolone Dexamethasone Loteprednol Fluorometholone Medrysone Rimexolone Restasis Bion Tears I suggest asking your local pharmacy if they have a list that they can provide you with.

prefrin eye drops
1 Reply RSS
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

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! ...

replacement for Visine LR ## PLEASE IF THERE IS A REPLACEMENT FOR VLR, LET US KNOW ALL THE DETAILS OF THE EYE DROPS ASAP!!!! ## 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 els... ...

eyedrops after cataract surgery
2 Replies RSS
I'll be having cataract surgery soon. Is there a natural eye drop that would act the same as the ridiculously overpriced prescription one? It's an antibiotic. And there are 2 others that are prescribed for inflammation I think....all totally 400+ dollars in the US. Thanks so much! ## Hello, Anna! How are you? No, there is nothing over the counter that would be the same. However, you could explain the expense to your doctor and ask them about possibly prescribing cheaper alternatives. The FDA lists the typical side effects of most eye drops used after such surgery as possibly including eye burning, stinging, redness and tearing. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you. The expense is one thing more on principal, really...gouging comes to mind. However, I'm not on... ...

eye drops that start with the letter d... two words second word start with K ## Hi terri, I've checked out several lists of various eye drop brands, and have yet to come across one that fits your description exactly. Dexamethasone (Ophthalmic) is the closest match I'm finding. This happens to be an ophthalmic corticosteroid, prescribed for swelling, itching, redness and irritation of the eyes. You can read more about it here: Other brand names I found include: Dexair, Dexacidin, and Dexasporin Hopefully this helps to narrow down your search! Please post back if you happen to have any more information to add. ...

Mistakely put eardrop into my mothers eyes. Wanting to know what is some of the problems she may have . ## Hello, Yoyo! How is she? Did she suffer any adverse effects? Likely nothing will happen, other than some irritation, but since they aren't sterile, there is a risk of them causing an infection. Signs of that in the eye, as listed by the NIH, may include redness, swelling, discharge and excess tearing. She should report it to her doctor, so they can check for any possible issues. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Graves' disease involving bulging eyes
1 Reply RSS
My mother is 86 years old and has Graves' disease. We heard that on rare occasions if you cough hard your eye can pop out. Is this true? Sincerely, Diana Christiana ## Hello, Diana! How is your mom? No, it is not true. However, her disease should be being treated by her doctor, which may help lessen the bulging. The bulge can also make it harder to keep her eyes moist, so she may need to use lubricating eye drops, or the dryness may irritate them, causing pain and itching, as listed by the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Terramicina - Does It Go In The Eye Or Around?
2 Replies RSS
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... ...

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? ...

Visine LR
3 Replies RSS
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... ...

an awful sinus arised after i had som eye my throat is paining and the sinus has blocked my nose,will allegex help me? ## Hello, John! How are you? This medication will only help, if your symptoms are due to an allergic reaction. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects of antihistamines as possibly including dizziness, headache and dry mouth. If they are due to side effects from the eye drops, then the antihistamine will not likely help. What eye drops did you use? Perhaps I can research the side effects for you. ...

Simbrinza Side Effects
1 Reply RSS
I have been using Simbrinza and Latanoprost for the past year. The pressure has been good but for the past month my eyes have become red and irritated and they seem to be getting worse no matter what I do. I think it might be one of the drops. ## Hi Connie, Sorry to hear about your situation. From what I could gather, both medications list "redness of the eyes & irritation" as either rare side effects or allergic reactions to Simbrinza and Latanoprost. So I'm not sure how you would go about determining which one of those medications could be at fault. My first suggestion would be to contact your doctor about this as soon as possible in order to decide whether it's safe for you to continue using or if your doctor has any other recommendations moving forward. It's ... ...

Dazed and confused using Travatan
1 Reply RSS
My husband has been on Travatan eye drops for glaucoma for nearly a year. For the last few months he has felt dazed and confused. Various tests have not shown anything that may be the cause and he has been told that the side effects of Travatan would not include his dazed symptoms. We think that the Travatan drops may be the cause as he has felt like this since starting the use of. Has anyone else experienced the same problem ? ## Hello, Butterfly! How are you and your husband? No, that is correct, it does not include such side effects. Is he on any other medications? Does he have any other medical conditions? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including anxiety, eye irritation, eye dryness and seasonal allergy. ...

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. At this time, it is listed as only being used in nasal sprays. Have you consulted your doctor? They may know of an alternative that works well.

something stronger than clindamycin?

Hi, I got pink eye a week ago and started to use polysporin eye drop for a day, then it got worse and more swollen and more painful. Dr prescribed me tobremycin eye drops, then after 3 days my eye got worse and worse. Tears running non stop and my eye is like a bowl of blood. It is so itchy and painful. I hardly can open my eye. After 5 days my Dr prescribed oral medicine (clindamycin 300mg) 3x daily. I just started last night but there is no change. I am so worried about this issue. He said if it gets worse i have to do some inj. ## The general rule with oral antibiotics is that if they are working, you shouldn't see any worsening after taking it for a full 24 hours, and you should start to see improvement after taking it for a full 3 days.

Thank you ## Hi I finally got relief on the 3rd day, eye doctor said it could take 3-4 days to get relief. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? I'm glad that is started working for you. And yes, it is normal for it to sometimes take a few days to get relief, depending on the severity of the issue being treated. The FDA lists these drops as being most commonly used to treat allergy symptoms and those can sometimes be pretty bad. Typical side effects may possibly include blurred vision, dry eyes, headache, increased tearing and eye discharge. Is there any... ...

otic edge
1 Reply RSS
How long can u use this after it expires? ## Hi cindt, According to the manufacturer, Otic Edge (acetic acid + antipyrine + benzocaine + Policosanol) should be properly discarded when it is expired or no longer needed. They then recommend contacting your pharmacist or waste company for specific details on how to go about that safely. Pills are one thing, but when it comes to liquid eye drops, I don't think there's anyway to know for sure if the contents are still safe outside of the marked expiration date, because it may be difficult to determine if the product is degrading or not. How long has it been since the listed expiration date? ...
