After using medication, there is a lot of sticky and dried medication all around the eyes and in the corners. Cannot apply eye makeup because of this and it looks really bad. I didn't know if this would remove what the Rx is supposed to do or if it has already been absorbed by the eye.

I occasionally wear one monovision contact lens. I forgot I had it in, and took my usual drop of xiidra in that eye. Now, it seems as if my contact has "dissolved". Is that possible?

I used this product yesterday, 1 drop in each eye, and immediately had burning in both eyes. Once the burning subsided I started tasting it going down my throat and started gagging - what a horrible taste! A couple of hours later I started vomiting and had severe stomach cramps but it all went away ...
