The instructions tell you to squeeze out about 1cm into the lower lid where it joins the eye but do not let the nozzle touch any part of your eye. However, the ointment automatically curls back and around the nozzle EVERY TIME! And it's so sticky you have to rub the nozzle against your lid to break it off. One tube is supposed to last both eyes 5 days. With 90% ending up in a tissue and 5% in my eyelashes, it's no surprise that it was all gone in less than 3 days - and I was only using it one one eye!So now it's back to the chemist for something else before the infection flames up again.

Over the past year, for some reason I'm still unsure of, I've had several eye irritations, the most annoying of which have been styes. When I was younger, every few years I might get one tiny, irritating stye, but more recently, if and when I get one, they are much bigger, painful and a big irritation. The last big one I had (a large one ... Read the complete review

About two years or so ago I started to get eye infections which is something that I had never really had a problem with before other than the usual itchy sore eyes from wearing contacts. One night I went to bed with a really itchy eye and the next morning I woke up with it swollen and double it's normal size. The tissue surrounding ... Read the complete review

In the past and for many years I have always used Optrex eye drops and their very useful eye bath system for treating eye infections. I stumbled upon the Golden Eye Ointment online after reading some positive opinions of the product. I suppose you could say I am now doing my bit in returing my opinions from my experience of the product. ... Read the complete review

I got conjunctivitis and with a friend's advice started using camomile washes. It was getting better in the first two days of the washes, but not as fast as I wanted, so I went and Bought the GoldenEye ointment... On the second day of using the ointment my eye got worse than it was in the beginning. On the packed it says if it doesn't get better within two days, discontinue use.... basically it was a waste of money for me! I am going back to a good old camomile treatment.

I did not fine this product very good at all. The consistency is waxy which means it does not sit properly in a watery eye and It just slipped right out of my eye and made my face very greasy! I used more of the product than was necessary as it kept washing out of my eye and so it cost to much for what it did. It also meant I ran out after three days so my infection did not clear up. I think drops work alot better and this stuff really is a con! Would not recommend!

I had the luxury of having contracted conjunctivitis a month ago and needed an over the counter remedy. My girlfriend brought this back for me and quickly demanded the sum of £4.99, which I thought was a fairly reasonable price and I quickly set to work to mend my broken eye. The first thing I noticed is that it got to work ... Read the complete review

A while ago I got a minor problem with one of my eyes. I developed a lump on the inner lid of my eyelid that felt sore and sharply painful so I popped to the chemist to see what they could offer. The pharmicist had a quick look at the lump, which wasn't very visible but felt huge to me, and declared I had a small infected cyst that ... Read the complete review
