Besides, most of eye drops contains antiseptic, if you overuse it, it surely hurt your eyes. So, you'd better adopt natural tears to keep your eyes moist instead of eye drops.

    Don't do that. It is quite harmful to your eyes. Just as an old saying goes," More haste and less speed", it may make your redness more serious and damages your function of your eyes. And it may make you become dependent on eye drops. Another thing I want to tell you is that don't misuse eye drops and you should follow the doctor's advice to sue them. Do remember that wash your hands before you use eye drops to prevent bacteria from setting in.
