Interesting.. After writing my post I went on to read more about urine drops for the eyes and read it is normal for it to burn - so that explains why my eyes felt worse!? My mother told me that her friend had an infection in his eyes and the doctor told him (this was a million years ago in Russia) to rub/massage his urine just on top and around of his eyelids. The next day the infection was gone..
Perhaps this is just as effective with no burning!!?
