«‘ve heard so much about from the ads and from friends, I decided to try. Nothing to compare, nothing else used, but I liked it. Constantly suffered from dry eye as soon as I moved to the city, and the drops became salvation. Very comfortable, no stinging from their use, no side effects. Eyes moistened, but not for very long. The downside is that are less than the stated time — about 5 hours, but here are all individually, I think. The price suits you need, just a couple of drops a couple times a day, so long does not end there. In General, visine — a universal remedy, helps even under severe irritation and redness».
