Optrex itchy eye drops £2.06 @ Tesco, until 3/7/2014
Next cheapest place is Morrisons at 2.37.
Or buy 1 from Waitrose for £3.10 or 3 for 2 = £2.06 each?

This is probably going to go cold but if you can let me know where I can buy Optrex branded eye drops at a cheaper price then it would be much appreciated.

Sorry, I am not sure about the suitability of these drops for children.

However, I do know that we should not over use these eye drops due to the preservatives in them?
Luckily hay fever only lasts a few months.

I buy tescos own brand comfort drops, 10ml for £2.40ish I think. But I did see these on offer at the checkout the other day, but the packet felt to light to be 10ml but I guess I was wrong as these are apparently 10ml

Water in a small bottle

Agree.

Better to buy sodium cromoglicate drops for hayfever- you can get it in optrex range or opticrom and there are also generic ones available. They are usually behind the counter in the pharmacy though.

Thanks for posting berry333. I have itchy eyes and these drops are the only ones that work.

Will be stocking up this weekend.

These were still £3.16 in the big tesco near me.

These should be ok for kids as they are just witch hazel based. I suppose they might be useful for when out and about, if you cannot wash your face or use a proper eyebath.
My young son is prescribed sodium chromoglycate drops by the doc (so free) for hay fever related itchy eyes and just uses them on the bad days. They sting a bit when you put them in, but do work. You have to dispose of them 30 days from opening.

I couldn't find them at first either, but after scanning the rest of the shelf I found them about 5m down amongst the foot care products. Why they do that I wonder?

And they were still marked up at full price. Got the offer from their site up on my phone and was ready to argue the toss, but it was unnecessary as they went through at £2.06.
