I had to take this when having been told I had mild GPC. As it did help calm my eyes down and slowly diminish the bumps under my eye lids the side effects were awful. On my second week the burning in my eyes got worse, my eyes got dry, horrible headaches everyday, and now I have horrible pain in my right eye and it hurts to even touch it. Will definitely stop using these and contacting my doctor.

Used this for my watery itchy eyes this season. I am from Canada so for two small bottles it's $5 with my insurance. This is a lifesaver.
