How do I get rid of eye redness with lubricating eye drops?

Wrong approach. Lubricating drops lubricate the eye, don't fix redness. Redness is nature's way of cleaning up problems in the eye. When something bothers the eye, the vessels on the eye surface expand to carry away the irritant and bring in defense systems to help with the cleanup. Drops to "get the red out" just defeat your natural protective system, but do not fix the underlying problem. Need to fix the cause. Read more...
