Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Weill With Dry Eyes With a few drops, my eyes go from dry to moist in a snap. It works pretty well and if I had other symptoms, I would get the other varieties of Visine drops. (I was given a sample bottle for a fair and honest review.) August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by no more dry eyes feeling Visine Original is great for the eyes! I really like that it leaves my eyes fresh, hydrated, and also calmed and relaxed. I like that it takes away that feeling of hay in my eyes due to dryness in the eyes, removes eye redness, and also like that it is soothing to my eyes. Thank you Visine Original I definitely recommend it to friends and family! This product was given to me free from Home Tester Club! July 29, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bring back Long Lasting Redness Relief formula!!! You used to sell a Long Lasting Redness Relief formula that was wonderfully. Since it was discontinued I haven't found any of your other formulas that work nearly as well..... July 24, 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by New Formula Does Not Work! I have used Visine for years when needed, and it worked very good, fast, and lasted. But the change in the formula has drastically altered the product to where it does not work. Yes, it does get some redness out but it takes a long time before you see the effects, but not all. I have three bottles of the stuff; please return to the original formula! March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 This stuff is great! It works like magic! In just 10 minutes the redness was gone! January 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Different Formula I have been using Visine for years with great satisfaction. When the packaging changed to red, I believe the formula also changed. It no longer gets the red out. I returned both of the bottles that I bought. Please go back to the original formula! November 19, 2014
