Why you should NOT use Visine and Cleareyes by Dr. Travis Zigler

 Why you should NOT use Visine and Cleareyes by Dr. Travis Zigler

 

Hey there, Dr. Travis Zigler here from Eye Love. We’ve been getting a lot of activity on our blog in our website lately regarding Visine and Cleareyes and our articles about why you should not use something like Visine and Cleareyes has been getting a lot of attraction. So, I wanted to do a quick video on it. The reason that you don’t want to take Visine or Cleareyes, it has a substance in it called “tetrahydrozoline”. Hydrozoline, what that does is it's a vasoconstrictor. A vasoconstrictor just is a fancy word for making the blood vessel smaller, and so, the blood vessels of your eye when they are dilated or big, they’re going to look redder, or more red, and when they look more red there’s a reason for that problem. It could be allergies. It could be dry eyes. It could be any number of things, pink eye, viral infection, bacterial conjunctivitis, a bacterial infection. It can be any of those things. So, finding the problem, the root cause of that, is the key thing and Visine doesn’t even get close to finding the cause, it just makes the blood vessels shrink. What happens is, if you start getting reliant on Visine, your constantly putting the drug in to shrink your blood vessels. What that's going to do eventually is, it’s going to make you rely on that medication and so you’re going to start taking it once a day, and then you’re going to start taking it twice a day, and you’re going to start taking it 3x a day, four, etc. You’re going to start taking it more, more, and more. You’re going to make the problem worse by taking it more times a day. The reason this happens is something called rebound, the rebound effect. So when you take it your blood vessels get reliant on it and then it expands a lot bigger. Then you take it again, and then it expands a lot bigger again. It just constantly goes through this cycle, so finding the cause of the problem is the best treatment and that’s just seeing an eye care practitioner, going by symptoms, and having them take a look at your eyes. Most likely the common cause, the most common cause, is usually dry eye and that’s a pretty easy fix. We’ve done many articles and videos on that and you can read more on the blog as well. Let me know if you have any questions about that on why not to use Visine or Cleareyes or any of those and I’ll talk to you in the community.

One Love,

Dr. Travis Zigler

Hey there, Dr. Travis Zigler here from Eye
Love.

um, We’ve been getting a lot of activity on
our blog in our website lately regarding Visine

0:00:09.630,0:00:14.790
and Cleareyes and our articles about why you
should not use something like Visine and Cleareyes

0:00:14.790,0:00:16.240
has been getting a lot of attraction.

0:00:16.240,0:00:19.010
So, I wanted to do a quick video on it.

0:00:19.010,0:00:22.670
Um, the reason that you don’t want to take Visine
or Cleareyes, it has a substance in it called

0:00:22.670,0:00:24.580
“tetrahydrozoline”.

0:00:24.580,0:00:29.260
Hydrozoline, what that does is it's a vasoconstrictor.

0:00:29.260,0:00:36.929
A vasoconstrictor just is a fancy word for
making the blood vessels smaller, and so, the

0:00:36.929,0:00:41.760
blood vessels of your eye when they are dilated
or big, they’re going to look redder, or

0:00:41.760,0:00:46.659
more red, and when they look more red there’s
a reason for that problem.

0:00:46.659,0:00:47.659
It could be allergies.

0:00:47.659,0:00:48.659
It could be dry eyes.

0:00:48.659,0:00:54.010
It could be any number of things, pink eye,
viral infection, bacterial conjunctivitis,

0:00:54.010,0:00:55.519
a bacterial infection.

0:00:55.519,0:00:57.329
It can be any of those things.

0:00:57.329,0:01:02.309
So, finding the problem, the root cause of
that, is the key thing and Visine doesn’t

0:01:02.309,0:01:07.040
even get close to finding the cause, it just
makes the blood vessels shrink.

0:01:07.040,0:01:11.690
What happens is, if you start getting reliant
on Visine, your constantly putting the drug

0:01:11.690,0:01:13.960
in to shrink your blood vessels.

0:01:13.960,0:01:18.440
What that's going to do eventually is, it’s
going to make you rely on that medication

0:01:18.440,0:01:21.470
and so you’re going to start taking it once
a day, and then you’re going to start taking

0:01:21.470,0:01:25.020
it twice a day, and you’re going to start
taking it 3x a day, four, etc.

0:01:25.020,0:01:27.140
You’re going to start taking it more, more,
and more.

0:01:27.140,0:01:32.410
You’re going to make the problem worse by
taking it more times a day.

0:01:32.410,0:01:36.700
The reason this happens is something called
rebound, the rebound effect.

0:01:36.700,0:01:42.560
So when you take it your blood vessels get
reliant on it and then it expands a lot bigger.

0:01:42.560,0:01:45.380
Then you take it again, and then it expands
a lot bigger again.

0:01:45.380,0:01:51.370
It just constantly goes through this cycle,
so finding the cause of the problem is the

0:01:51.370,0:01:56.860
best treatment and that’s just seeing an
eye care practitioner, going by symptoms,

0:01:56.860,0:01:59.310
and having them take a look at your eyes.

0:01:59.310,0:02:04.420
Most likely the common cause, the most common
cause, is usually dry eye and that’s a pretty

0:02:04.420,0:02:05.420
easy fix.

We’ve done many articles and videos on that
and you can read more on the blog as well.

that on why not to use Visine or Cleareyes
