I started to notice better results after 1.5-2 weeks. It sucks, but its worth the wait. My eyes still become very red, but an optometrist told me yesterday that I have a serious case of dry eye that is causing them to still be read. He gave me a Tear time break-up test (a test measuring the amount of time it takes for your tears to evaporate causing you to blink again) and my time was only 2 seconds. A normal persons eye is around 7-8 seconds to the tears to evaporate. You just have to hang in there for a week or two. I would actually suggest seeing an optometrist, maybe they can prescribe you with a steroid drop that will help calm the redness for you? If you are using optive, try and get preservative-free bottles and stick them in your fridge. The cold from the refridgerator works as a natural vasoconstrictor, wich actaually will make your eyes less red.

Also, I am only 19 so I think the fact that we are still young really helps us out lol
You should try it if you can afford it, definitely. If it worked for Bryan, it might work for you too. I obviously can't afford it, but if you end up using it and getting significant results I may try to obtain it as well.

I'm thinking about buy an eye drop called Similasian (sp?). I did some research on it and apparantly it's like Visine, but without the rebound redness effects...one of those organic kindof herbal remedies...it's fifteen dollars though so I'm skeptical, but maybe it'll be a temporary solution to this crazy problem. Also you can buy it at Walgreens or wherever so I wouldn't have to see a doctor or anything.

By the way, you can call me Elle. :]

you can probably afford it. a 2month supply cost me $25 with my insurance covering the rest. Without insurance it is very expensive
