Is there any possibility that ingredients of nasal sprays go into the eyes and cause problem? Like when eye drops drain into nose and throat?
Eye drops drain with gravity down the lacrimal ducts into the nose. Ear drops thru Eustachian tubes also drain with gravity into the nose.
Nasal drops and aerosols can't work up into the eye (or ear) against gravity like your home plumbing - it's one way.
However, a bone defect between nose and orbit (like from fracture or surgery) can cause air or medication from nose into orbit around eye. ...Read more

I can taste eye drops in throat and nose. Is it dangerous for me to shallow things while having this taste?
Not a problem: There is a plumbing system connecting your tear flow with the inside of the nose. Eyedrops of certain types can be tasted.

My neurologist says ER visit or primary doctor. Eye hurts/draining, ear ringing/pop, neck pop, bad vertigo w/nausea, headache. What could be causing?
Ear infection: Bad vertigo (room spinning) can cause nausea. Vertigo suggests inner ear infection. Ear ringing/popping suggests eustachian tube dysfunction if no pain or middle ear infection if painful. Eyes hurting/draining could be conjunctivitis. Depending upon site of headache, could be sinus pressure from upper respiratory infection causing all above. I'd vote for going to see your family doc but I'm biased. ...Read more

How long do you have to wait to put on contacts after using visine "red eye" eye drops? Do you wait at all?
No.: For the most part, I do not recommend visine "red eye" drops. If one abuses these drops by using them too frequently, they actually get the "red in" instead of getting the "red out." however, for this particular drop there is no need to wait. If you want to be safe, as a matter of course you can use 10 minutes as a safe guide to how long you should wait after placing any sort of drop in your eye. ...Read more
