Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by thin vaseline.... really? I got this because of the great reviews and the price. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it was a thin Vaseline! A thin petroleum jelly type of consistency. I was hesitant to use it, then decided with all the great reviews, to go ahead. It was as weird as I thought it would be. Why is this getting such high marks? You have to put a filmy slimy concoction into your eyes, then lay there for about 20 minutes blinking, waiting for it to dissolve the film from your eyes that keeps you from seeing! I guess if you use this only at bedtime, it would be great. But I found it terribly inconvenient as well as creepy to put a petroleum type jelly into my eye. I won't do it again. I'm going to ask for a refund. Having to wait 15-20 minutes to see clearly again is too much to ask, to get soothing. May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value I have used this ointment at night for years. My eyes feel moist and refreshed in the morning. I highly recommend this product which gets the job done without breaking the bank. December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Same ingredients as the big name brands at less than 1/4 the price. Much better, and safer (IMO) applicator tip, as well. If you need an eye ointment, I highly recommend giving Rugby a try. September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lube Use this nightly. Doesn't bother eyes at all and cheaper than all other night lubes. November 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I have used this night time ointment for my dry eyes for a couple of years. It works well and is much less expensive than the drug store brands. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Eye Lube Ever This ointment is terrific!! I wish it came in a larger tube would be my only complaint. The price is great. The shipment is fast, even around holiday time this company rocks! This product is as good as any name brand eye lube that is made. My eyes get severly dry overnight and this is the only thing that helps me sleep the entire night. No store can beat the price that Swanson has for this product. It's a win, win for everyone. I definitely recommend this product. July 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value! The quality and effectiveness of this product is pretty much the same as the next product with basically the same rather simple ingredients; however, I use a lot of it for my prosthetic eye and the cost is about the best you'll find. I've seen similar products running close to $10, making Rugby a real bargin. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rugby Artificial Tears Ointment I replaced a much more expensive product with Rugby Artificial Tears Ointment, and have been very results. I can tell no difference other than in my pocketbook. June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Saver I use this product every night at bed time. I wish I didn't have such a dry eye problem to have to use this daily but I am so glad that Swanson sells this product. It is exactly what I need and half the price of a regular store. I have saved a bundle buying this from Swanson. June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eye Prooducts I have used this product for several years. Always very satisfied. May 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product value In comparison to the big-name, more expensive eye ointments, this product does everything they do while being a substantially better value. It also seems the ointment applicator tip is slightly larger which gives better extraction control resulting in less waste. March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value I have very dry eyes, and have tried many ointments. This is as good as the moreexpensive brands I have used, and it costs 1/2 the price. March 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great stuff!! i have used many products of the this type this is the best! March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Product works as well as much higher priced eye ointments. January 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great purchase this eye product works better than any other even tho it is much less expensive, i use this nightly in both eyes and have been very pleased with the results. a great product at a great price!! January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product for Great Price! This ointment seems to work as well as any other for 2,3,4 or more times the price.The ingredients are similar if not exactly like those more expensive options. This has been a great find for someone who must use an artificial tear ointment every night. August 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great eye ointment for severe dry eye due to nerve This has been the most beneficial ointment as far as being able to put it on and then fully participating in your daily life :) I is oily and have to wipe it off your surrounding eye a few minutes after you put it on and for me it lasted about an hour at a time. When I got occupied teaching it seemed to last longer. Great for longer hikes as well. The most long lasting I have found :) June 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by rugby artifical tear oinment The tear oinment is great. Works as good as the most expensive brand. September 14, 2010
