10 best eye drops for stoners on Amazon

It’s easier than ever to get your hands on top-shelf bud, and there are more ways to enjoy it than ever before. Whether it’s OG Trainwreck, White Widow, or even the now-famous Pineapple Express, today’s weed is higher quality than ever before. While we can’t complain about the phenomenal availability and quality of modern cannabis, we have to make our busy lives work around the improved smoke sessions. That’s where these eye drops come into play.

How do you get rid of red eye fast?

Imagine it: You just sat down and smoked a bowl in your brand-new helix. The red eyes and giggles have started creeping in. You’re about to put on your favorite TV show when suddenly the phone rings and you’re called into work. You get cleaned up, get ready for work, and see yourself in the mirror, completely red-eyed. But you don’t worry, because you’ve got some great new eye drops that will clear up those red eyes in no time!

Rhoto Max Strength Redness Relief – $14.97

If you’re looking for guaranteed clear eyes every time, this is the one for you. Rhoto will clear up even the reddest of eyes and comes with a soothing cooling effect as well. Use these about 15 minutes before you need to be clear-eyed; this one takes a second to work, but it will clear your eyes up like no other!

Lumify Redness Reliever – $16.31

If you need your eyes to clear up right now (like, RIGHT now), these eye drops will do the trick. This is the only one on the market that use the active ingredient brimonidine, which works to alleviate red eyes. It works in a minute or less, so you can clear up your red eyes anytime you need to in a flash. Busy stoners out there, get a bottle of these and you can smoke worry-free.

Clear Eyes Maximum Redness Relief 3-pack – $11.99

When it comes to picking the best eye drops, Clear Eyes has been a top competitor for years and years, and with good reason. The name says it all: use these if you want clear eyes. They’re simple, effective, and don’t provide the same cooling effect as some other products (which some people consider to be more of a burning sensation than a cooling one). If you want a simple fix for your red eyes, use Clear Eyes.

Visine Advanced Redness Relief – $1.99

Another of the longtime trusted names in eye drops is Visine. They’ve been making eye drops for decades, and their redness reliever line of products shows what years of practice can produce. You can always use Visine to clear up your red eye quick.

Bausch + Lomb Advanced Redness Relief – $23.03

Offering their highest strength medicine, this is another powerful redness reliever. It can even help with irritation from all sorts of common allergens. Just use one to two drops twice daily, and you’ll be clear all day. It’s worth mentioning at this point that, as is true with all of these products, applying too much/too often can actually increase redness, so always make sure to read the instructions and use as directed.

Similisan Redness Relief Drops – $6.99

If you’re looking for something all-natural that will cure your red eyes, look no further than this homeopathic medicine. These offer the same relief for your eyes, but it doesn’t use any of the harsh vasoconstrictors that constrict blood vessels and can raise blood pressure. As with most of these products, you should remove your contacts before applying them. Your red eyes have met their match in this all-natural relief.

Naphcon-A Eye Drops – $12.05

Sometimes red eyes from smoking aren’t just caused by getting high. Sometimes it’s due to allergic reactions to the weed itself (or something it was grown near, like certain house pets). If you don’t just get red eyes from smoking, and always find yourself with itchy, watery eyes after a few hits, you may very well suffer from these allergies. But worry not, because these are one of the best eye drops around to relieve your symptoms and get you back to enjoying your buzz.

Systane Ultra Lubricant Eye Drops – $16.76

Another reason we get red eyes sometimes is simply that the smoke dries our eyes out. We sit in this big cloud and walk away with dry, irritated eyes. If this sounds familiar, give these lubricating eye drops a shot. They’re one of the best artificial tears on the market, and your eyes will thank you for the relief.

Clear Eyes Triple Action – $13.74

Maybe this all sounds familiar to the experienced stoners out there. The redness, the irritation, the dryness. You can relieve your eyes of all these symptoms if you use this triple-acting eye medicine. Clear Eyes Triple Action will clear your red eye, relieve your itching and irritation, and lubricate your dry eyes all at once.

Similasan Complete Eye Relief – $15.99

If you also thought all those symptoms sounded familiar but prefer to get clear eyes using an all-natural product, check out this awesome product from Similasan. These eye drops will relieve you of the same red eyes, dryness, and irritation as Clear Eyes Triple Action, but it does so using homeopathic medicine. Use these to clear up your eyes the all-natural way.

Conclusion

Whether we go for the highest power lab-made medicine or the all-natural homeopathic fix, stoners can always use good eye drops. Your eyes will thank you for the lubricating relief, and you’ll be glad later when you don’t get any criticism for your red eyes. It’s important to note that if you have contact lenses, you’ll generally want to remove them before applying eye drops.

Dry Eye Treatment in Encino & West Hills, CA

The treatment of dry eye continues to be a difficult challenge for eye care practitioners. In particular, although we know the anatomy of the tear film and the methods needed to diagnose dry eye, we often cannot provide treatment that relieves symptoms for our patients. Many patients complain bitterly about burning, scratching and irritation, yet their symptoms don’t correlate with significant abnormal finding on their examination.

Often patients become frustrated with their ophthalmologist, and often the ophthalmologist becomes frustrated with the patients. As ophthalmologists, we want to help our patients to the best of our ability, so we become concerned when we are unable to alleviate the symptoms that make our patients miserable and are unable to find the typical signs of dry eye that we look for when we examine patients. In fact, Dr. Aizuss finds himself frequently having to tell his patients that the good news is that the surface of their eye looks fine. However, that is also bad news, since patients don’t come to the office for their entertainment. Patients come to the office because they are not feeling well and their discomfort is impacting their lives.

Dry Eye & Pain

In 2009, Perry Rosenthal MD observed what they diagnosed as corneal neuralgia, which they termed, “pain without stain” because there was not the usual staining or stippling of the cornea that is often seen in dry eye patients. They speculated that the pain symptoms could be a neuropathic pain, as opposed to qualitative or quantitative disturbance of the tear film. Dr. Rosenthal later determined that nerves in the eye are critical to the proper functioning of the eye because they provide feedback on the functioning of the tear film. These nerves could become dysfunctional, causing increased sensitivity of the eye’s natural alarm system, and sending pain signals that are disproportionate to the physical findings. In fact, there may be no physical findings at all!

The dry eye community of doctors and patients has become increasingly interested in the neuropathic dry eye. Neurosensory abnormalities are now specifically listed as a cause of dry eye. However, at this time there are no dry eye therapies that specifically target neuropathic pain related to dry eye. As a result, marijuana and its derivatives, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main ingredient in recreational and medical marijuana, are becoming of interest in the treatment of dry eye related neuropathic pain.

Cannabinoid receptors are known to modulate pain and inflammation and are located throughout the eye, including in the corneal surface cells and the retina. They are also on immune cells and may play a role in wound healing. It is difficult to perform research on this in the United States due to the stance of the federal government on the legality of marijuana, even while various states have passed laws that legalize marijuana for both medicinal and recreational use. Research is underway in Germany to further clarify the role of cannabinoid compounds in the treatment of dry eye neuropathic pain.

Marijuana and Dry Eye

Smoking marijuana or eating marijuana edibles is not a practical method of treating ocular disease. These systemic methods of consumption produce unpredictable doses with a variety of often unwanted side effects. As a result, most professional organizations, such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology, have taken positions opposed to the use of systemic THC treatments for ocular conditions. Cannabinoid eye drops are under investigation and development, but have proven difficult to formulate as it is difficult to produce eye drops that can get the THC into the target ocular tissues. Studies in Europe have demonstrated that there is a vehicle that may adequately deliver THC to the ocular surface, and that shows promise in improving both pain scores and the severity of the ocular surface disease. In addition, these same studies show the linkage between patients with clinical depression and ocular surface disease. We look forward to the publication of these studies and the development of THC based therapies in the United States that may benefit our dry eye patients.
