Used eye drops every day

Hi,

I've been using Optrex brightening eye drops for dull eyes every day for probably 2 months now and my eyes have started to become very blood shot and a slight tinge of yellow at the bottom of both eyes. I've just read you are not meant to use them every day and nor after 28 days, so I have failed on both counts. My eyes are a bit achey (achy) too.

What can I do to make them better? Preferably without needing to go the doctors...

Thanks

You should stop these drops right away. I don't know what eye brightening drops are. I would strongly recommend an exam with an ophthalmologist to determine why your eyes are red. Until that appointment, you could try artificial tears like Refresh, Systane, or Blink. Any of these products can be used 4 times a day. If you need a tear drop more than that, it should be preservative free.

I think you should consult with your doctor. Because it may be harmful to you to use this drop. After all its eye problem. And you should eat proper diet fruits which are helpful to your eye.
