Used this for itchy allergy eyes. My eyes quit itching but now my pupil in my left eye is so HUGE I can't see anything!!! Do not use these eye drops unless you plan on sitting in a dark room for the entire day, because you can't see!

Used product for itchy, red eyes, due to allergies. took red out and eye stopped itching. Side effects, however, were very bad. My pupil became so dilated, my vision was very blurry. This lasted for about 12 hours. I am just glad this happened on a day off from work.

Itchy, red left eye dilated pupil, therefore blurring vision within minutes of use. The other eye had no reaction. Shaky and nervousness after 20 minutes.
