Latisse Experience: Red Eyes

The Latisse Diaries: Week 3 — Catch the Red Eye

Hi everybody. I'm continuing with Latisse and thought it was time for another installment because I've run into my first real gripe about the product. It's my eyes. And no, they're not changing color, still the same baby blues; they're just noticeably bloodshot, especially after I apply my nightly treatment. Mr. Bella has jokingly begun referring to me as Ol' Red Eyes.

My doctor told me that there could be some minor irritation, but I find myself repeatedly using Visine, and my contact lenses certainly aren't helping things. I was worried about it, so I stopped in at the doc's to make sure I hadn't contracted conjunctivitis or something similarly unpleasant, and he recommended I flush my eyes with saline in the morning before I put in my lenses. That way, any Latisse still on my lashes doesn't get into my eyes and trapped under my contacts. It's so common-sense that I'm a tad embarrassed it never occurred to me. Let's just hope it actually works.
