I just put about 3 drops in my eye because it was very red. I didn't think for a minute that Visine could be bad for my unborn baby. I just did a web search and it doesn't look good. Now I'm scared that I did something to my babes (I'm 13 weeks pregnant).
Visine is a Category C drug.....Meaning that it it has not been sufficiently tested by the FDA to deem it either safe or not safe in pregnancy....Simply not enough testing done on it.....I wouldn't worry about a one time use, but also would avoid using it again until you ask your Dr. about it....just to be on the safe side....
