no it will cause irritation of the eye and will cause watering of eye. it will increase the conjunctivitis and will delay the healing.

Any infection in eye is a strain for it. And on top if you watch TV, It wil strain more leading to more pain for you.

I am one of those few people who believe they developed conjunctivitis quite possibly as a result of taking Buspar. I was on 5mg, 2xday for 7 days, then 10 mg 2xday for 7 days. Later went to 15mg 2x day. When started Buspar also went on Alprrazalam ER 1xday. Within very short time, noticed red, runny eyes. on waking and during day. Eyes (esp left eye) would actually drip fluid. Eye Dr. said dry eye & recom. eye drops. For long time had difficulty adjusting to the goo and trying to see through glasses. Have had negative effects with meds (extreme dizziness after taking B (and maybe the Alp--who knows?) so Dr has me reduce Buspar back to 10mg 2x day. Still dizzy although not extremely so. Expect I may be told to reduce even further--haven t talked to him yet.. Gooey, dripppy eyes persist. Doctor doesn t believe any correlation between my eyes and my meds. What do you think?
