What are GoldenEye Eye Drops?
Goldeneye Eye Drops are a treatment for mild eye infections, such as conjunctivitis or blepharitis. Use these eye drops up to 4 times a day for a fast-acting treatment which will help to clear up your infection and irritation, so you can get back to normal.
What is conjunctivitis?
Conjunctivitis, which is also known as pink eye or red eye, is a common eye condition which can be caused by an infection or by allergies. When you have conjunctivitis, you may notice the following symptoms in one or both of your eyes:
- Burning or gritty feeling eyes
- Pus which sticks to your eyelashes
- Watery eyes
How will Goldeneye Eye Drops treat my eye infection?
Goldeneye Eye Drops contain the active ingredient propamidine isethionate, which is an antiseptic. Antiseptics treat infections by killing bacteria which can cause infection in the first place, giving your eye the chance to fight off infection and heal.
Can I use these eye drops if I wear contact lenses?
You should not wear contact lenses while you are using GoldenEye eye drops. If you wear hard contact lenses, you can start wearing them again after you’ve finished using these drops. If you wear soft contact lenses, then you should be aware that the benzalkonium chloride in these eye drops can discolour soft contact lenses. Wait for at least 24 hours after you finish using these drops before using your soft contact lenses again.
Can I drive after using these eye drops?
When you’ve used these eye drops, you may experience blurred vision for a short while. Do not attempt to drive or use tools or machinery unless you are sure that you are not affected in this way.
Can I use this product if I’m using another medication?

Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
