Bausch & Lomb: Vision Care http://www.bausch.com/us/resource/visioncare/otc/allclearar.jsp If your eyes are red and you wear contacts, I recommend a visit to your ophthalmologist to treat the cause of the redness (conjunctivitis).

Differentially Diagnosing Allergic Conjunctivitis Medical Association Communications http://www.macmcm.com/acaai/acaai99_te.htm Heres some useful information from Google Groups. In general eyedrops shouldn't be used with contact lenses because the lens can absorb the eye drop and result in a concentrated buildup of the solution.

You might also get interested in the Bates method if you have eyes problems. Please check http://squeebo.home.mindspring.com/ . I can vouch for this method, it has worked for me and is free (at most you'll have to buy one book or two, but you can get started with the information you'll find on this site.

Hi Go9ers, To help narrow the focus of research, it might be necessary to ask you a series of question, such as: 1. Have you been diagnosed with allergies or hayfever? (it is "the season" after all) 2. Have you had any recent eye trauma or been in close proximity with anyone who has had conjunctivitis? 3. What is the nature of your work/living situation? (environments with dust, smoke/smog, inadequate lighting/fluorescent lighting, or work requiring close work, i.e. long hours spent staring at a computer monitor, could all be contributing factors) 4. Do you have any drug allergies? 5. Have you had a recent ophthalmological exam? 6. What eye drops have you tried thus far that haven't worked for you? I wouldn't expect you to reveal any of your medical history in a public forum such as this but, as a researcher, this is how I'd approach your question. Here is a link to some faqs and a decent product for contact wearers with garden-variety eyestrain. http://www.optrexeyes.com/Original/faqcontent.htm Hope this information is helpful. Regards, V
