I've heard that if you use visine too often it can stop working, and your eyes can become red easier. I was wondering, how long does it take if you use visine on average of once a day, and after awhile will you be able to use it again. And if visine doesn't work will clear eyes?

lots of people use visine every day a few times a day. I don't see how it would just stop working right or not work as well. Their isn't a whole lot of chmicals in it and it's mostly distilled water. I even heard that if you have clean hands you can rum cold water on your eyes and take most of the red out.

did anybody else notice the main ingrediant in visine is tetrahydrazoline which is fairly similar sounding to tetrahydrocannibinol. i just found that interesting

o yea i suppose your body could work up a tolerance to visine just like any drug i would have no idea how long that tolerance would take tho. i dont use visine i just red eye it. i havent had anybody say anything in a long time.

and if clear eyes is a different active ingrediant then go for it, otherwise it wont do anything differntly.

I was pretty ripped when i wrote that, so let me explain myself a bit better.

I've heard that you can develope a sort of dependency on visine. Your eyes will get red more often, because your body will eventually stop making its natural eye un-redder juice or something, because it is dependant on the visine. And after awhile the visine stops working almost completly. I don't know if that true though.

ive noticed that my tolerance 2 geting red eye has gone up, now i smoke i just look tired, but that varies persoon 2 person, my friend has been smoking longer than me and he always gets mad red eye, but lol think bout ppl that get red eye with out smoking, so idk evreyones difrent.


ps, visine may rid the red eye, but adds and extra gloss 2 ur eyes, so it depends on how stoned u get, ppl could still tell,

i use visine almost everyday and probably have for quite a long time.. at least like 4 months straight and it still works great. i kind of like clear eyes better though, seems to work longer.

just use visine only when your eyes are BLOOD SHOT (like you could tell from 10+ feet away). if they are reddish then don't. shit, my eyes are red most of the day just because my contacts make them red. i usually don't use visine because they harden up your contacts. just don't make eye contact with people who would care

just listen to the instructions on the bottle............up to 2 drops in each eye up to 4 times daily.........dont do 8 drops at once the acidity is too much for your eyes causing extra redness............

I dunno, I use generic shit (equate) and its like $1.50 for a bottle, and it works better then visene, clear eyes, all of them.. Just go to shopko, or kmart, or walmart, or walgreens and get 'equate sterial eye drops'...

Hard water is not good for your eyes. The water out of your sink and the stuff in visine are very different. If they werent, whats the point of making visine?

Hmm... I only use Visine when necessary. If I'm about to go somewhere where I can't have people know I'm high I just don't smoke too much. My eyes usually don't get red until I get really high anyway, but I doubt Visine would just stop working?? It probably maintains the same effect.

word.

+1 for clear eyes. stuff works better than visine and always works. have had spotty performance w/ visine.

also another really good brand is bausch and lombs clear all.

used to use this stuff caled opcon 9 by bausch and laumb and it was uber whitener. but made you eyes look to white - kind of unatural.

Visine and other product will always work on your eyes. What I think you might be confusing is that if you do use eye drops too often depending on the brand it can ruin your tear ducts making it harder to produce tears. Also there are products on the market to fix this problem so no worries either way your fine.

they do, but not in long term, if you use it 5 times in one day then it will probably make your eyes even redder. but it wont do that in the long run

Personally man I use Rhoto V's those things will make a cherry white buuuut they burn like hell. As for that whole dependency thing its totally probable in overly recommended doses, I mean if your eyes dont NEED to make the moisture to keep them from getting red they won't. Eventually this will lead to smaller tear ducts which, for someone who frequently gets red eye :smoke:, this won't be enough. Kind of like the steroids make your nuts shrink because they no longer have to make the testosterone your body needs....
