    My eyes get dry after using the computer, walking to school and when I wake up in the morning.

    Can anyone recommend eye-drops which aren't too expensive but are really good for the eyes, both moisturising them and helping to minimise redness and thus make them brighter & whiter!

    Anyone got suggestions or use any eye-drops?

    Optrex work really well.

    you could try these aswell;

    Be aware though---if you use them regularly your body gets used to the 'ingredients' & they stop having an effect. Like most medication...or so I was told.

    Best thing to do is when the bottle runs out...leave it for 2 months before you buy another.

    When I first started using the optrex ones people often mentioned how white my eyes were....but cos I guess my body is used to it--they dont work as well! Shame you cant bleach your eyeballs like your teeth. haha:lol:

    Thanks for the tip, there are quite a few brands out there and I suppose using a well-known one such a Optrex would be a good idea. I was tempted by the VitalEyes one too last time I was in Boots.

    Don't you hate it when your body gets resistance to good products? It's so disappointing...

    Thanks again :)

    Ahh now that looks good. Expensive, but good.
    Is there anywhere that sells them cheaper than £11(inc. P&P)?

    I've used the blue eye drops before and they didn't work that well for me. Plus they made my eyes feel really funny. :(

    I wear contacts now (I didn't when I used the blue drops) does anyone have any favorite drops for that?

    ^I'd like to know that as well. My eyes get really red when I'm tired and wearing contacts.

    I'm a longtime contacts-wearer, and it's best to use lubricating eye drops without whitening effects. I don't buy a specific brand, but you can find them at any pharmacy. The best ones to get come in 1 package-per-use packets, so you can put a couple in your purse to always have with you.

    Whitening eye drops should be used in moderation, certainly not over the course of a day. The classic Visine works great for me, and it's cheap too, around 2-3 euros.

    Woman Mistakes Nail Glue for Eye Drops, Seals Eye Shut for 8 Hours

    A woman’s eye was glued shut for eight hours after she mistook a bottle of nail glue for eye drops.
    Paula Griffin, 29, woke up with blurred vision and mistakenly squirted the hazardous substance into her right eye, gluing it shut for eight hours.
    “By the time I realized what had happened, it was too late and I couldn’t dodge the liquid completely,” Griffin said.
    Griffin said it the pain was a burning sensation and she described it as “agonizing.”
    Eye specialists at Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset, England, cut off Griffin's lashes to pry the eye open again.
    In order to open Griffin’s eye, doctors applied paraffin, which helped dissolve the glue. Griffin’s suffered a cut across here eyeball, so she had to take a week off work. Now, she wears false eyelashes.

    ^Use eyedrops only when you feel like your eyes are calling for them. If not, don't- or your eyes will develop "resistance" to the product like people have mentioned above

    I use Golden Lupearl eyedrops and they work so well for me. Got them in Japan though... Not sure if they're available anywhere else :unsure:

    I think I'll get those Vyzine eye drops, they seem to be the most popular here.
