What is the best eye drop to relieve tired eyes that I can use daily?

Lubricants: The only thing really safe for daily use would be an artificially tear. There are many many options. Try a few and choose your favorite. If using more than 4 times a day, consider a non preserved drop. ...Read more

Prescription change?: Depending on the last time you've had your eyes checked, you may have a refractive error, that may have changed in terms of your history w/ astigmatism.So you might want to have this rechecked, so that you're wearing the best possible visual corrected glasses/contact lens possible.Also make sure that your eye doctor checks for dry eye syndrome, as that can also sometimes cause those symptoms too. ...Read more

BAK Preservative: Benzalkonium Chloride is a common preservative in eye drops, including artificial tears. It can cause an allergic reaction in some people if the tears are used frequently. Try preservative-free single use vials of ocular lubricants and you should be okay for frequent dosing. Another alternative are these new electronic misting devices to spray a little cloud of clean water in your eyes. See EyeMD. ...Read more

I have perpetually red and tired eyes. Eye drops are not effective. Is there another solution?

Yes: Unfortunately, there are many causes for red eye. Allergies can cause intense itching and can be treated with otc zaditor or alaway. Another cause is eyelid inflammation (blepharitis) which can be treated with hot compresses 5 mins daily and eyelash scrubs with dilute baby shampoo. Red eyes can also be caused by growths on the eyes called pterygia or inflammation in the eyes (diagnosed by eye dr. ...Read more

Tired eyes: What you are describing sounds like eye fatigue and the movement was most likely a spasm. Make sure you get plenty of rest and avoid overuse of the computer. Lay down for a few minutes and apply a cold compress to your upper lids and try to relax ...Read more

Computers = eye strain? I spend a lot of time in front of a computer monitor, both at work and at home. Before i log off at night, i often find my eyes feel tired and/or dry. Should I use eye drops, or do I need to get a life away from my computers? Is st

Working : Working at a computer screen for long hours is very tough on the eyes, for two separate reasons: 1) when you concentrate on computer work, most people blink less than they should. Under normal conditions, the average person blinks once every 5 seconds, but when using a computer, many people blink only every 8-10 seconds. This can cause the eyes to feel dry and become red and irritated. The solution is to rest the eyes throughout the day, if only for a few minutes each hour. Eye drops will not help much. Fish or flaxseed oil pills (omega-3's) help a great deal by making the tears a little thicker. 2) if you are over 40, you might benefit from reading glasses while working at the computer. Oftentimes, the reading glasses sold in the drugstore (no prescription needed) will do the trick. ...Read more

Dry, tired eyes.Headache. Fatigue. Occasional nosebleed. Lubricating eye drops help but only for a short time.

?allergy mediated?: Could be allergy mediated symptoms you are having. Sometimes the type of heat you have (forced air through vents, as opposed to floor radiation, etc) can cause dryness, nose bleeds, etc at this time of year as well. If the over the counter allergy medications and saline nasal spray, with the eye drops are not helping, you would benefit form getting examined by an allergist. Best wishes. ...Read more
