Reviews for Tetrahydrozoline/zinc sulfate

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "This is HORRIBLE. My allergies have been bad lately. I went to the pharmacy to get eye drops. I normally get Similasan, which works great. They didn’t have that so I decided to give this a try. I was torn between this and another cosine product, but unfortunately decided on this one. Oh my goodness the burning was terrible. I even gave it a few tries. I thought maybe my eyes needed to get used to it. Day 3 and no improvement. Burning just as bad as first time. Ordered Similasan on day 1 from amazon, but still won’t be here for a few more days. I’m going to another pharmacy later just to see if they have it because I can’t use this another day."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "My eyes were dry and itchy, and I tried this product. Now it's worse, much worse. If I imagined putting hand sanitizer with aloe into my eyes to help, this is what I would imagine it feeling like."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I have used other Visine products, however, Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief one was a absolutely terrible! I felt like I dropped acid straight into my eyes. I see this is common. WHY is this still on the market?"

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I've consumed cannabis for several decades, and my wife wears contacts, so between the two of us, we've gone through a serious amount of eyedrops from various companies. Visine has always been the golden standard, but they really dropped the ball with this product. It's slightly less irritating than putting gun-smoked sand in your eyes. Expect blurry, stinging eyes that water and make your nose snot up. You'll look like you just got dumped. The itch stops after 30 minutes or so, but by then your eyes are as red because you've been rubbing them so much. Did Johnson & Johnson bother to test this product on humans? It seems doubtful. You know what? I'm contacting J&J and seeing what they have to say for themselves. They HAVE to know that they're selling lava disguised as eyedrops, right?"

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I used this product for my dry eyes, the first drop burned so much. Imagine dropping rubbing alcohol in your eye. I highly recommend no one to use this product. It really should be pulled off the shelf."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I used Visine -A for my itchy allergy symptoms. I put one drop in each eye and experienced burning intense pain in both eyes. It hurt so bad that I could not open my eyes for 5 or 6 seconds. I never used eye drops that cause me to have reaction. I will never use this product again."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I have mild allergies to our family cat. I had my boyfriend pick me up some eye drops to help with the itchy, red and burning eyes. I had never used totality before but have used other visine products and loved them. This one burned and felt like my eyes were on fire for about 5 to 10 minutes, after a few hours my eyes do feel better but it shouldn't be at the cost of setting my eyes on fire!"

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "Went to the drug store earlier today to buy eye drops. Pollen is so bad in NJ and my eyes were itching, red, and I had blurry vision. I bought this because it was the most expensive brand and I figured it would work better. Nope! My eyes are on FIRE! And they itch so bad for 20 mins after using this product. $12.99 down the drain."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I thought that perhaps I had purchased a bad bottle. I see I'm not the only one who has had serious burning with the application of this product in the eyes. I thought I was buying something to moisten my dry eyes... A couple hours after application, my eyes feel better. After the burning stops, which takes several minutes... The burning is quite an unexpected shock."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "This really burns!!! Honestly, no joke. Like someone is pouring fire directly into the cornea. Couldn't drive a car till my vision returned, which is not great when on the way to work. Yeah, it gets the redness out, but not before you experience pain similar to having your eyelids tattooed with rusty nails. "

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "Bought this product for the 1st time because I was having red itchy eyes & happened to see Visine Totality on the clearance shelf so I figured it would be fine with some extra benefits but how wrong I was. I put the drops in & within 30 seconds my eyes were burning very bad then the itchiness started like you wanted to scratch your eyes out & it did take the red out but after rubbing my eyes they were red again. I used it again a couple of days later because it was all I had & maybe it was a one time thing but no the 2nd time was even worse on top of the burning & itching my left eye felt like I had a cut in my eyeball and I was putting alcohol in it. BEWARE!!"

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I went to the store looking for Visine A, which works perfectly. They didn't have it. But they had Visine Totality so I got it, since I prefer Visine to the others and still do...but this stuff was potent. A tingling sensation is okay and sometimes expected. But these things burn."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I bought these for dry eyes and I also have many eye floaters, this product has helped me so much and makes my floaters almost go away after I use it for awhile, my vision does get blurry a few mins after use but then goes away! Great product I will buy again and the burning isn't that bad."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "These eye drops burned my eyes so bad I couldn't even open them for maybe 15 seconds. After that my tear ducts and eyelids continued to have a burning sensation. I was completely in shock, being that I've used the visine brand for years."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "I was having redness and itching due to allergies and I used the visine totality. It made my eyes burn and I couldn't see for 10 minutes. It amplified the symptoms I was already having. I'm scared to use this product because it's painful and I wasn't expecting it to burn."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "Used once and the product burned my eyes . Then made the mistake of not throwing it away and used again in one eye and only that eye has been watering for more than 12 hours and irritated. Now the skin around the eye is sore. I'm trying not to touch it but it's drying out my skin."

Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief (tetrahydrozoline / zinc sulfate) for Eye Redness/Itching: "Tried this product twice to get rid of redness in my eyes. Each time just after applying my eyes started to burn and pretty much felt like this product gave me every symptom it was supposed to cure. My eyes felt terrible and where hard to open at first, but subsided after few minutes."
