I used to use visine type products for 2-3 years on a daily basis but quit them about 3 months ago and I am still having redness problems. I went to a doctor who gave me a tear film break up test and said my results were only 2 seconds when normal is around 8-9 seconds. He said I deffinately have a case of dry eyes and prescribed me with Restasis. The doctor also said my visine use is no longer a problem because the rebound stage of those drugs doesnt last for more than a month or two. Is dry eye in this situation enough to make my eyes bloodshot all day everyday? The redness has been persistent for years now and I am just wondering if the fact that my eyes are indeed dry is the cause and could Restasis help with this?
