What is Murine Irritation & Redness Eye Drops?
This Murine Eye Drop solution is a form of treatment that is designed to reduce the effects of redness in the eyes as well as irritation. Redness and irritation are mainly caused by things such as dust, wind, smoke, pollution, as well as looking at computer screens for long periods. Irritation in the eye expands the blood vessels which makes them red. The active ingredient is naphazoline hydrochloride, which is a decongestant that thins the arteries in the eyes.
Are there any other symptoms of eye irritation?
As well as redness in the eyes, other symptoms of irritation include:
- Itchy eyes
- Watery eyes
- Pain in the eyes

Eye irritation can also be caused by allergies, including hay fever, as well as a cold or flu.
