    visine isn't going to solve your problem. Visine is only a decongestant that really only "gets the red out". That's ALL it does. It's not treating anything.

    You'll get some relief from artificial tears in that it washes out the allergens and relieves dryness. But, again, it's not getting to the root of your problem.

    You probably need a presription allergy eye drop... I'd go see your OD and get a written scrip. Something like Patanol works great for this. :) But, I can't tell you that's what you need without seeing you...
