You should go to the emergency room right away if your throat is tight and you are having trouble breathing.  This is not a usual reaction to eye drops - rarely I have patients sometimes complain of very red, irritated, blurry eyes and headache and feeling bad - but its very uncommon.  I'm not sure if your problem is an allergic reaction to the eyedrops but I think you need to be seen in the ER or your doctor's office for an immediate evaluation for an allergic reaction - because sometimes they can be quite serious.
