I started taking Visine a year ago when I noticed my eyes were kind of red from allergies/tiredness. I've just found out about rebound hyperemia, and want to quit before I harm my eyes anymore. So my questions are:
1. How long would it take for my eyes to recover if I quit cold turkey?
2. At what point would my symptoms(i.e. redness) be the worst after quitting?
3. How can I diminish redness after quitting?
I'm in high school, and am not able to get a lot of sleep at night due to the typical messed up Circadian rhythms thing. When I have not used eye drops for a day or two in the past, I've been called a stoner and other similar things. I really don't want to hear that kind of stuff on a regular basis while my eyes are recovering, but am not sure what else to do.
