Last time I bought Bausch & Laumb, (SP?) but this time I just bought CVS brand since the ingredients are the same. Boric acid doesn't sting and is used for eyes. I use this myself.
Did you see the fairly recent thread on tear stains? In case you missed it here is a link to a very informative article.

Hmm... well, we do soy yogurt, and I usually get Vanilla in a big tub because that's what I eat.... They only get a few spoons so I figure it's fine

Is it okay for them to eat vanilla flavored Greek yogurt?

So, is it an eye wash or contact lens wash?

Yes. Zooey and I love Fage (she only gets a little spoonful).

I buy the eyewash, but I have always had that on hand. Alan sometimes gets dust or other particles in his eyes, so we always have it on hand. He tells me that contact lens cleaner is simply saline solution and may work just as well.
What I gleaned from our friendly vet's advice is that the boric acid kills the bacteria that contributes to tear staining. All I can say is that MiMi had nasty brown steaks that are now simply pink. The stains are slowly fading and I think that no new stains aren't developing.
I am experimenting, and by no means feeling an absolute resolution. But from my experience I advise cleaning the face with an eye cleaning solution every day...I mean every single day. Something else I gleaned from reading, reading and more reading...is that for whatever reason your baby is tearing, there is another reason for the tearing to stain.

I won't stop here, but for now, that is all I have to contribute.

Flavored, sweetened yogis don't have the same benefit as plain yogis. The sugar in the sweetened version is the culprit. Soured milk & yogi or "fermented milk=buttermilk" is a much healthier choice.
I am using the same product as Sylie is using---Bausch & Lomb ReNu Multiplus multipurpose solution. I clean Lisi's eyes one & usually 2 times a day w/this---just the fur underneath the eyes. I have also added a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar to her water. At the moment I am putting a gel in both her's & Kitzi's eyes due to a low grade infection.
Lisi had tear stains as a tiny baby---and they tend to come back w/a vengeance with any little flare up---I am just glad when we have them under control for a while.

Before reading the vet article I had already bought an eye wash at the pet store. Nutri-Vet Eye Cleanse...it has boric acid in it...I am guessing that the cost would be way less if buying the people eye wash/saline solution.

The B & L costs about 13$ bottle here---17-18$ if from the eye doctor. It has to be tossed after 6 months if not all used up.
