Are you in need of eye drops?
Whether you’ve ran out or you desperately need to get some right now, 7-Eleven is a convenient place to look for them. With over 70,000 7-Eleven stores around the world (and most open 24 hours), most people have one close by.
But does 7-Eleven sell eye drops, and if so, how much do they cost?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
Does 711 Sell Eye Drops?
Yes! 7-Eleven appears to sell eye drops at most, if not all of their stores.
In fact, they have several different offers available, allowing you to choose from different sizes or brands.
Considering that 7-Eleven often only carries one brand of each product, it’s great to see that there are so many choices for eye drops available. This means that even if the store ends up having a surge in customers, you can be reasonably sure they won’t sell out of all of the eye drops that they have to offer.

What Brands Of Eye Drops Does 7-Eleven Carry?
Currently, 7-Eleven carries several different brands of eye drops in their stores.
These include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- Clear Eyes
- 7-Select, 7-Eleven’s private label generic brand.
Note that not all options will be carried at each store. Based on our experiences however, you are likely to find at least two of the above brands at the 7-Eleven you choose to visit.
How Much Are Eye Drops At 7-Eleven?
The price of eye drops vary depending on the brand and size you choose to purchase.
At the time of writing, the prices for eyedrops at 7-Eleven are as follows:
- 7-Select Red Eye Drops ($5.69, 0.5 fluid oz.)
- Visine Allergy Eye Drops ($9.99, 0.5 fluid oz.)
- Visine Regular Eye Drops ($8.99, 0.5 fluid oz.)
- Visine Advanced Relief On-The-Go ($5.69, 0.28 fluid oz.)
These prices are about in line with what you’d expect to pay at larger retail chains, even superstores like Walmart!
So, considering that 7-Eleven offers convenience and availability, it’s nice that the markup for eye drops is not that drastic.
What Aisle Can Eye Drops Be Found In At 7-Eleven?
Typically speaking, eye drops can be found in the same aisle as other medicines and pharmaceuticals, such as melatonin or Benadryl.
They may also be located to other health products like sunscreen or Tylenol.
Of course, if you are having trouble finding them, ask a 7-Eleven employee for assistance. Generally, they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
Do All 7-Eleven Stores Carry Eye Drops?
Fortunately, it does appear that most – if not all, 7-Eleven stores carry eye drops.
Normally, availability would be an issue during peak shopping days. However, because 7-Eleven sells several different brands of eye drops, you are likely to find at least one if you make a visit to the store.
So, you can be reasonably sure that they’ll be available.
That being said, it’s always a good idea to call the store ahead of time in order to inquire. To find out the phone number of the specific 7-Eleven store you intend to stop at, use 7-Eleven’s store locator here.
How Do You Put Eye Drops In Your Eyes?
The process of putting in eye drops is actually pretty simple, but it can be a little bit tricky to get the hang of it at first. Here are a few tips to help you out:
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. This will help to ensure that you don’t introduce any bacteria into your eye.
- Remove the cap from the eye drop bottle.
- Tilt your head back and look up at the ceiling.
- Gently pull down on your lower eyelid to create a small pocket.
- Place the tip of the bottle directly above your eye.
- Gently squeeze the bottle so that one or two drops fall into your eye.
- Close your eye and roll it around for a few seconds. This will help to spread the eye drop evenly.
- Repeat the process if you need to put in more than one drop.
Putting in eye drops may take a little bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, it’s really not that difficult.
Eye drops can be found at almost all 7-Eleven locations. Even better, several different brands are offered, and prices aren’t that much more expensive than the larger stores!
So, if you are in need of some, you should feel confident that they will be available.
