But can these eye drops containing Vitamin B12 be taken every day? How can Vitamin B12 improve eye problems? How to improve dry eyes and discomfort? In response to these questions, ophthalmologist Zhang Xinyu responded as follows:
Vitamin B12 is not harmful for the eyes. If compounded eye drops are advertised as removing bloodshot eyes, they contain vasoconstrictor agents. Discontinuation of use after prolonged use may result in rebound vasodilation and further congestion. Bottled eye drops contain preservatives and excessive use may cause damage to the eye surface.
Vitamin B12 can promote corneal nerve regeneration, improve regulatory function and reduce visual fatigue.

If you really have symptoms of dry eye, it is advisable to go to an eye clinic or hospital for examination.
