A bleary-eyed notice from TeamBilly HQ:
No more Visine. Doc’s exact words: “Unless you’re an actor and need a quick fix, don’t use the stuff. Use artificial tears or something better. But not Visine.”
Apparently the quick fix you get from tetrahydrozaline works, but when it wears off you go right back to swollen eye blood vessels, and it becomes a vicious cycle. He used the word addictive, but not in the physiological sense.
Weird. I have three bottles of it in my car, two in my travel kit. Who knew?
Now … if only I could get someone to advise me about my dangerously spiraling Sudafed / Coca-Cola / Allegra / Vicks / Budweiser / Altoid habit …
