Cool Eye Wash

Anybody know of any decent eye wash out there? I realize saline is salt and water, but thought I would see if yall have any preferences that are better. Horse seems to have poked himself in the eye with hay, and needs to be washed out until it clears up. (watering, etc.)

Thanks.

I've used a strong tea (no sugar or anything of course , preferably warm) on my horses and dogs.

We've used to clean everybody's eyes with chamomile tea, but vet told me not to, because there are tiny pieces in the tea and it could hurt the eye. Saline works fine :)

Yep, I don't think you can beat Saline for use in the eye.
It is formulated to be just like our natural tears, does not sting, and it is not expensive either.

I use teabags on the eyes of the horses I work with, especially if they are at all swollen, it seems to be really soothing. I did this just yesterday, on my bosses dressage horse you banged her eye in her box and had made it all swell up.

The nice bottle of saline from the store works great as an eye wash/rinse. So cheap that there is no reason to look for an alternative.

Not worried about price just wondering if something was better. Sounds like theres not, though I will remember the tea bag for the swelling. My question there is how to do KEEP it there? Surgical tape, perhaps? Thanks everyone!
