My eye doctor recommended weekly use of a simple lubricating eye drop, but since I try to use natural products for most everything else I am not keen on putting propylene glycol in my eyes. Has anyone got a recommendation for a more natural eye drop? I don't wear contacts so this just for the eye.

I've used this brand for both pink eye and itchy allergy eyes.  I loved them!  This is the dry eye relief one.   I have also heard that taking flax seed oil helps, not in your eyes of course, internally!

Thanks. I saw that one, but wasn't sure about some of the ingredients, esp the ones for preservatives. I ended up finding some Boiron single use ones that seem similar. I think the Similasan single use is probably very similar to the Boiron, but I didn't see the single use.

I totally forgot about the Boiron ones!  I haven't used those ones, but I love the company, so I suspect they'll be great!
