My personal experience with Itone:
I had a burning sensation and redness in the eyes with continuous use of computer. This is termed as computer vision syndrome as per medical terminology.
I even had anti-glare glasses as a protection against computer screen. Still the eyes were under strain so I tried itone on recommendation of a friend.
The eye drops on application had a slight burning sensation which subsided immediately. On regular application twice the eyes felt better and were even better resistant to laptop screen glare. They were less susceptible to screen brightness.
Further use made eyes bright and the vision was clear.
Further there was no redness and itching in the eyes with regular use. Even when there was some conjunctivitis infection around which spread from one person to other, my eyes were resistant. But as a precaution I applied Itone drop before bed to avoid infection of conjunctivitis.
And on the label they mention not use itone which is 30 days older after removal of seal. This seems to be true as i found that one pack with more than 3 months old was not that effective as a new one.
If you are suffering from computer vision syndrome or other eye allergies you can try itone. But based on this itone review do not solely rely on itone if you have severe eye problem. It is advised to consult a physician. Since not all physicians would have known this medicine so they might not advice you. But Along with your prescription you may try it. Since it is not an allopathic medicine, it might not react with other to produce side effects when used together.
If one is suffering from eye problems due to excess work, i recommend to go for itone eye drops.
