Comment:
I have used Alaway or the store brand equivalent for several years for a problem with one eye that weeps on recommendation of my opthalmologist. It is usually very effective for the problem that I have which generally lasts for several days to a week. I have had no problems with eye pain with this product and find it easy to apply.

I use OTC brand, less costly than precription form, Zaditor. Ease of use, very slight irritation each use, but goes away almost instantly. As long as I have a need for this medication, I will go with OTC brand.

Comment:
I have used Zaditor with great success, but the Alaway was less expensive so I tried it. The Alaway drops stung horribly: eyes watered, tears ran, nose ran. After recovery, the drops 'worked', but too much initial drama. I'm back to the Zaditor. Since both brands contain the same active ingredient, I've no idea why Alaway was such an initial assault.

This worked for me for about 1 week until I experienced vision problems and eye pain. I honestly thoought that I was losing my eye sight, and I am having trouble right now focusing; even though I have stopped using it for 2 days.
