Rated 5 out of 5 by Work Great! I'm honestly shocked to see all the negative reviews of these eyedrops! I have not experienced redness of the skin or corner of the eyes. HOWEVER, I generally aim very accurately with my eye drops and try not to let any escape my eye so it has not been in much contact with my skin. Maybe they came out with a bad batch and mine was not affected? (LOT: EFB3U00, exp 05-2016) Or maybe people just have wildly different reactions to eye drops. Before using Visine I tried Rohto. For me Rohto drops burned so intensely in my eyes I worried it was blinding me; unlike anything I've ever experienced, let alone voluntarily put in my eyes. I had them at work and a few of my colleagues tried them as well, all to similar results. So when I went looking for a better product Visine seemed like a good choice. My biggest eye issues are dry eyes and allergies. So I chose Visine for Contacts (as a regular contact wearer) and a regular dry eyes version. Both have worked very well for me!! What used to take hours of rubbing and discomfort now is fixed in a few seconds with (usually) lasting results. My biggest problem with these drops is if I use them multiple times throughout the day I feel like my eyes are getting drier in-between uses. (Kind of like how if you overuse chapstick your lips get more chapped.) I would say, if other brands are not working for you, try these. The negative reviews may not apply to you. June 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Burns skin!! Unfortunately I didn't read the reviews and I too have bright red burn streaks down my cheeks So far I can't find anything to make it much better. Aloe Vera helps a little. I can't believe this is safe to put in your eyes!! Thank goodness I didn't use it on my daughters. April 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Burns so badly! A few seconds after I put these drops in my eyes start burning horribly and i can't do anything but close them tightly as my ears are ringing, waiting for the burning sensation to pass... would not recommend, especially with all the other bad reviews!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible product I used this product and within a few minutes of putting the drops in, red inflamed streaks appeared in the corner of my eyes and down my face like tears. From reading other reviews, I can see I'm not the only one. Not sure how Visine can say this isn't typical if clearly dozens of people are experiencing the same problems??? March 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My left eye Works very well my left eye contact would mostly bug me thought-out my day but now with Visine my left eye feels very great. February 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible reaction My son just used these drops and now has horrible inflamed red streaks under his eyes and down his face. What kind of product is this? February 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by stings at first Good price, works well as lubricant since my contacts dry out often because I read a lot. The drops do sting for a couple seconds each time I use them. February 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Burns! Each time i try to use the drops the burning sensation in my eyes is terrible and my eyes stay red for hours after. January 30, 2015
