Havent had a chance to use it because couldnt afford it! Insurance (united healthcare of the river valley) does not cover it and the cost was $147.99! Seriously? In this day and time, no medications should cost that much, let alone eye drops!

I got this prescription for itchy, red eyes. It has helped with the itch, but my eyes are just as bloodshot and uncomfortable as before. Now they're dry and they ache. Fortunately I have good insurance and only paid $20, but I'd be willing to pay more for something that actually worked.

Comment:
I have only used these eye drops a few times. My main symptoms are redness, irritation and extreme sensitivity to light. They do seem to work when you first put them in, but they do not last very long. Within 3 or 4 hrs, my symptoms come back. So I use OTC eye drops the rest of the day.

I have really itchy painful red eyes and this has helped me a lot. It is really expensive if you don't have insurance.
