Sort by:

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I suffer from year round allergies. My eyes itch and water often. I have noticed these drops do help but after a few seconds of applying the drops in my eyes I have a stinging/burning sensation. I would not recommend this to children if this is a common side effect. The pain does subside after a minute or two. I continue to use the drops because they do seem to help. I just have to wait out the initial pain."

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "If the bottle(s) can't be opened, the drops can't be used. Purchasing a two-bottle pack did no good. I'm a 76-year-old woman who lives alone, 115 miles from the Walmart where the package was bought."

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I am 80 years old. My health is not the best and so I do not get around much any more, I read a lot using paperbacks and a Kindle Fire HD 8.9, I watch some tv and I use my desk top for news and general knowledge and photography.. If my eyes are burning from allergies, I use Opcon-A and it gives me more relief than other drops I have used. For dry eyes, I use Refresh."

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "After contracting Lyme disease my immune system became weaker and eye allergy is now a continual issue. Opcon-A has made the difference. My current problem has been going to work in the morning and looking as if I have bloodshot eyes due to drinking alcohol or smoking. There is soap in your eyes feeling when you first apply it, but it quickly goes away."

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "Opcon-A relieves my eye soreness and eliminates redness better than any other over-the-counter product (such as Visine) and Pataday (Rx and a bank loan are required, but it causes eye twitching after a few days of use as Pataday instructs). I use Opcon-A once or twice per day only on days that my eyes become tired due to combination of chronic dry eye, possible eye allergy, and lack of sleep. (My eyes are red even on good days except for a while after using Opcon-A.) At age 58 now, no side effects have been observed despite occasional use for many years."

For Eye Redness/Itching: "My son recommended this to me. We both have itchy eyes due to various allergies. I bought the product today and my initial results are promising. I will use this 3x per day for the next week and report back the results."

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I really liked this product at first. Great for the redness. Lately when using it the eye I use this product in becomes enlarged, impairing my vision for most of the day. I do wear contacts and am on simvastatin (for cholesterol) so this could affect it."

For Eye Redness/Itching: "A friend of mine reccommended Naphcon-A to me during allergy season. Since I've started using it, I've reccommended it to everyone I know as well. It is the only product I've used that actually relieves my itchy red eyes instantly! I love it!"

Opcon-A (naphazoline / pheniramine) for Eye Redness/Itching: "When I first used this, I thought this was a miracle eye drop. My eyes were fully red, bloodshot, and 1 minute after I dropped the medication in my eye, I was shocked to see fast my eyes looked normal."
