    Didn't work for me

    Not all drops work for all people. I've lived with dry eye disease for more than 30 years, and I've found what works best for me through trial and error. I'm glad Bion Tears works for some people, but for me, it actually made my dry eyes worse. It didn't sting upon application, and it didn't feel bad initially, but after an hour or so, my dryness was worse than when I had initially put the drop in. I tried again, several times, but each time it was the same result -- the drop made my eyes worse. It was worth a try but it doesn't work for my eyes.

    Hi Susan! Thank you for taking the time to review. You are right, it is hard to find the right products. We suggest shopping by ingredients. When you have found what works for you, it might be helpful to find other similar products that way. https://dryeyeshop.com/pages/lubricant-ingredients-reference-list

    I'm so glad you've found the Bion Tears helpful! - Just for the benefit of other readers i would want to clarify that OTC lubricants can't really be directly compared with prescription drugs.

    Better than Xiidra

    I have been using these drops for about two weeks. The difference has been amazing! I have a cabinet full of other PF eyedrops that really did nothing to help my dry eye. My optometrist even had me get Xiidra, which after using for a couple of weeks, not only made my eyes itchy, but I ended up with a mild conjunctivitis in my left eye from it. This product is the only one that has worked well for me.

    I'm super happy that this drop has worked so well for you! Thanks for sharing!

    Just going to add a quick word of caution to readers though - over-the-counter lubricants work very differently from prescription medications, and any changes to one's prescription dry eye meds should be in consultation one's eye doctor :)

    Awesome!

    Bion are the only eye drop I can use! Everything else I tried before I found these causes stinging or worse. Even a prescription didn't do as good a job of relieving age related sensitivity and dryness. And the little vials are re-closeable so none gets wasted. Love this stuff, can't do without it!
