Eye drops are isotonic solutions used by injecting them into the eye.
Depending on which condition they are used to treat, they may contain medications or only wetting or tear-producing solutions.
Eye drops containing steroids and antibiotics can cause tingling for one or two minutes when first used. If the tingling persists, you should seek medical advice. You should also inform your doctor if changes in vision occur or if unrelenting sore throat, fever, easy bleeding, or bruising occur when using chloramphenicol drops. The patient should also be aware of allergic reaction symptoms such as rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, and difficulty breathing.
Prostaglandin analogues can cause changes in iris and eyelid color, eyelash growth, tingling, unfocused vision, red eyes, itching, and burning. Side effects of beta-blockers include low blood pressure, decreased heart rate, fatigue, shortness of breath, and, in rare cases, decreased libido and depression. Alpha-receptor agonists can cause a burning or tingling sensation, fatigue, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth and nose, and they are also more likely to cause an allergic reaction. Carboanhydrase inhibitors can cause tingling, burning, and eye discomfort.
Lubricating eye drops can cause some side effects, and you should consult your doctor if you experience eye pain or vision changes. Also, if redness occurs that does not go away after 3 days, consult a physician immediately
