I have a lot of problems with my eyes due to two different medical conditions, Sjogren's Diseases, and Lupus. My eyes are irritated a lot of the time, and kick up painful mucus strings that are hard to dig out. Over the last few years I feel like I've tried everything to get it under control and relieve the pain and irritation.

These are the only eye drops that have given me real relief. I use these at least once a day for maintenance so to speak. Some days when my lupus is bad I need to use these drop up to 3 times.

Using these drops daily, in conjunction with taking a tablespoon of Body Essential Silica Liquid and 600mg of Twinlab NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) and my eyes are actually under control for the first time in years. I've been doing this regimine for 2 months now and have had so much relief. I would say with these 3 products together my eye irritation/pain/dryness/mucus is about 80% gone. I have an occasional bad spell, but I used to have them EVERY day, several times a day. So this is a godsend. And, now when it happens I can get it under control within an hour.

I had read so many message boards for eye mucus strings, lupus and sjogrens, but no one could offer something that really worked. However, I kept seeing certain ingredients as popping up over and over again across the boards that people found had helped them, such as silica to address mucus and Propylene Glycol for eye hydration. I watched a television doctor do an interest segment which involved some of these products.

I finally found the magic combo, using these 3 products together. I feel like I have my life back. My eyes will always be problematic because of my medical situation, but with these drops I feel like a normal person again.

NOT FOR VERY DRY SENSITIVE EYES

I have very dry, sensitive eyes. These eye drops kind of sting and burn. I've never had that problem with Optive refresh eye drops.

Comments about Systane Lubricant Eye Drops, Preservative-Free Vials, 28 ea:

This is a sterile product that gives complete, temporary relief for chronic dry eyes. I use each vial for several applications, and have a different vial open for each eye so as to avoid potentially transferring bacteria from one eye to the other. All the plastic in the individual vials is a concern, but for the health of my eyes I put up with that waste.

    The fact that there are no preservatives in the vials compared to other products, including regular Sustane eye drops, makes this ideal for cronic dry eye.

      Comments about Systane Lubricant Eye Drops, Preservative-Free Vials, 28 ea:

      My eyes sometimes get irritated during the day -- it feels like something is in them when nothing is. I guess that's the dry eye condition. A drop or two of Systane Lubricant takes care of it within seconds. I also use it when I go to bed and first thing in the morning. Occasionally I wake up during the night with my eyes feeling gritty, so I keep a vial of Systane on the nightstand and can apply a drop in each eye without getting out of bed. Some of the other products on the market for night time use are thicker and blurr vision. I like to read when I get in bed, so using a little of the clear Systane liquid is just the ticket for me. At first I didn't like the idea of the separate vials because of the excessive use of plastic, but I have to admit it is handy for keeping in nightstand, purse, coffee table and car. And the single use vials help keep from transmitting bacteria from one eye to another. Having said that, I find there's enough in each vial for 2 or 3 applications, so I use a magic marker and label them for left and right eye. The only downside is the cost, but a box lasts quite a while.

        Comments about Systane Lubricant Eye Drops, Preservative-Free Vials, 28 ea:

        I use these drops to lubricate my eyes during the day and at bedtime. They're a God-send first thing in the morning when my Dry Eye condition is at its worst and I wake up feeling like my eyes are full of sand. A drop in each eye instantly remedies the discomfort. They don't sting at all for me, and I have pretty sensitive tissue. Keeping my eyes lubricated improves my vision and my comfort. I've used other lubricants in the past that are kind of gooey and blur my vision temporarily. I think that kind is best used at night because maybe it lasts longer, but I'm happy with Systane's more watery consistency. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the packaging in individual plastic vials. Systane does have tubes in some of their products, but I couldn't find it in the preservative free version. I understand "single application" packaging can be more sanitary than a tube of lubricant, but if one is careful in application not to touch the eyelid, there is no contamination of a tube, and environmentally one tube rather than 28 pieces of plastic make a lot more sense to me. Also, each vial has enough product for me to do several applications anyway, which overrides the benefit of single-application vials. If I were to use each vial just once, most of it would run out of my eyes and be wasted.

            Comments about Systane Lubricant Eye Drops, Preservative-Free Vials, 28 ea:

            The eye doctor recommended these drops because they do not have added preservatives and other chemicals that can sometimes irritate the eyes. They may make the vision blurry just temporarily right after application, but that goes away fairly quickly. These are not meant to reduce redness, or bloodshot eyes. They are not a blood vessel dialator, but are meant to sooth the eye ball and reduce dryness. I have used these drops for a couple of years as needed and have been very pleased with them.

              This is a great product. The preservative free is the best to use with chronic dry eys. When preservatives are added your eyes are apt to go dry faster. My ophthalmologist recommended this product and 2 others to me and this product is best for me.
