I was wondering which eye drops you would recommend to relief the redness caused by pingueculas.
I do not need this relief every day, only for a special event or a night out .... I heard that Visine, clear eyes, Refresh etc have rebound effects, not sure if it's because of the preservatives they use ......I never used them because I read so many bad things that I am scared to even try them once.
On the other hand I started using Systane vials eye drops (without preservatives), they somehow help, especially if I use them before going to bed at night, in the morning the pinguecula is usually a little less red, but still pinkish/reddish ..
I read somewhere that Aloe Vera eye drops might also help but I dont know where to find them, couldn't find them anywhere .... I believe they are not FDA approved yet ...... ? Why?
Hope you can help me .... I am considering surgery, although I heard so many bad things about that as well .... ('it might return worse' 'is not worth it' 'the scar that stays is almost as bad as the ping'.... etc) - but a few docs swear that their method is the way to go, Dr. Gulani (a marketing Guru who loves showing himself off, how believeable can that be? :( ) swear about his method with amniotic membrane ..... a doc in NY, doc Latkany, who claims that with his surgery procedure, the recurrence rate is less than 2% although he uses regular stitches and not the amniotic membrane super modern technique because he is concern about the link between the mad cow disease and the glue.
So I am very confused, for now I would really appreciate a recommendation for good eye drops that will hide a little the redness (my eyes are not so bad, I make it sound much worse than what it is).
