Yes Visine totally works. I use the Allergy Visine at this time of year as my eyes are red and burning quite a bit. They have a special formula for dry tired eyes- thinking this is for people who are looking at a screen all day.
There was a French (made in France I think..) eye drop called Collyre Bleu that used to be available in Quebec that was the best for red itchy eyes. Made them clear and cool. Hard to find over here these days. The best eye drops I have ever used, better than Visine.
The European line Mavala has Eyelite blue drops as well but they are hard to find as well.
