I bought this strictly for the price point, as there are other similar, but more expensive products like it. However, I was happy to find that the applicator end made it even easier and more effective to use which helps my dog's chronic eye condition.
I have a cat that was born with eyes too small (sounds weird right?!) but his eyes do not flush normally, so this product really helped keep his eyes from getting caked with dried tear material. The only other product I found was an antibiotic, and this is not an infection, so I was very happy to find a product that would not irritate his sensitive eyes.
