A few years ago I was out at a party in front of a camp fire for several hours and noticed my eyes became bloodshot. I went inside and dropped some visine in, then went back out. Came back in an hour later to see that my eyes were red again, so I dropped more visine in. This cycle repeated about 3-4 times that night. The next day, I woke up with red eyes again, so I dropped more visine in. At the time I did not know about rebound redness and well.........this is where I am now.
To this day I have been addicted to Vasoconstricter eye drops. Visine, Clear Eyes, Opcon-A....you name it. I've used them all for a couple years. It's the only way my eyes arent bloodshot. About 1 month ago I quit them cold turkey, hoping my eyes could heal. Unfortunately, my eyes have not gotten much better. They are still red everyday and still become worse when I am present to certain things (computers, wind, air conditioning, bright lights.) etc
I am really concerned that there might not be any cure for this. I am going to see an eye doctor soon, but I am afraid hes going to tell me theres nothing he can do for me, and I am going to look like this forever. Has anyone ever heard of a story like this.......and do you know if there is indeed a cure?
