    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.

    I love this stuff! My allergies are horrendous and these drops are the only thing to give me relief at night. I use them before bed to stop the redness and itchiness I experience. My doctor suggested I store them in the fridge because the cold feeling of the drops will be soothing. He was right! I've never had any issues with side effects (dilation, etc.)
