[Staples] Staples: Visine Red Eye Drops - $1.97

Staples has a couple different kinds of Visine for sale ...

http://www.staples.ca/en/Visine-Red-Eye ... 99_1_20001 $1.97

http://www.staples.ca/en/Visine-Dry-Eye ... 99_1_20001 $1.97

One is good for workplace and another is for contact lenses. Both are probably good for hiding what you'd get from smoking some stuff that also would give pink/red eyes. At $2 for 15mL you can't go wrong either way.

Both have been removed from their website. How about the Westcott® 6" Titanium Scissor for $2?

These are available in Ontario online, and I can add hundred or so to my cart. This is what I see here ...

Doesn't seem like the contact lens one gets rid of redness, only moistens. Also it looks like they have Reach toothbushes for sale for $0.97 as well.

Cheers OP!

Bare in mind Visine has an expiry date, and so before buying 1 (or in @Fantaz's case 100 :-P ) I would want to know what it was, as if it's down to 1.97 (from $5-7 reg?) then I am thinking they may be near the end.

Even if using it every day, it can last a month or 2, so do the math on your usage when knowing how many to buy to last until expiry ;-)

I find the Workplace one works best. Fun to chill it in the fridge too! hehe

If this is to fix red eye, then it uses a chemical to constrict the blood vessels in the eye. Long term, using that type of chemical actually makes the blood vessels wider, thus giving you permanent red eye.

Next time you see you eye doctor, ask about it. This isn't a long term solution.

I work alongside eye doctors and whenever a patient says they use visine, the doctor warns that there are much better products out there that are healthier for your eyes.

really? is it $15 to ship to store? i was going to get 3 or 4 bottles but not for + $15 shipping.
oh, my mother was going to get Visine recently at the drugstore, pharmacist glanced up and said "not Visine, any other brand but that" and went back to what he was doing without explaining why, so i just stick with Clear Eyes...................but at this price.......
i also found Visine makes your eyes white, while Clear Eyes makes them a more natural colour instead of glow in the dark white.

please tell us alternatives :)

I don't use that kind of product regularly, but would like to use good stuff when my eyes are dry (Maybe only once a month?).

Too bad this stuff is supposed to be thrown away after 1 month opened.

I've had bottles of Visine that I have had for open for almost 10 years and I still use them if needed. I can still spot Waldo holding a nickel at 500 yards and tell you the date on it. Expiration dates on medication are very misunderstood. The dates are there for guaranteed efficacy, that is all. The manufacturer can only guarantee they will work as they were intended at 100% until that date. After that, it may or may or may not start to become less effective, dependent on the medication. It does not magically turn into poison past the date. Studies conducted by the US military have shown that something like Aspirin or ASA is still safe to use decades after it was produced, with only a slight drop in efficacy.
