I remember two years ago, just a couple of days before Christmas, I got the worst case of pink eye ever! It took me a while to realize that it was pink eye (my daughter was only 2 at the time, so I was not a seasoned pro to this quickly-spread inflammation) and managed to reinfect myself several times before finally going to the doctor and getting some prescription eye drops. It was an unpleasant and inconvenient experience.
In Sunday's newspaper I found a coupon for over the counter, homeopathic Pink Eye Relief Drops from Similasan. I have not heard of these before, nor have I tried them, but I plan to keep some in the bathroom cabinet for the next time one of us comes down with a case of pink eye. They're advertised to be gentle enough for children 2 and up, and strong enough for adults. I'd love to hear from any readers who have tried these and what your experience has been.
