Vegan eyedrops?

Does anyone know of a brand of vegan eyedrops for dry eye sydrome and other related corneal surface issues?  I am having problems from staring at a computer screen all day, and I'm pretty sure the stuff I use isn't vegan.  I couldn't find an alternative, online or in a store.  I would prefer one of the higher viscosity ones, but I'll try anything. 

You mean eye drops are not vegan?!  I never thought of that one. 

Maybe you could get an eye cup and rinse them yourself with eyebright herb tea.  You could look into it anyway.

I am currently using Refresh Liquigel wich is made by Allergan.  I can't say if the ingredients are vegan or not, but here is a link to their statement on animal testing.

I know it's not possible to by 100% vegan with everything, and medications can be especially difficult.  If there is a vegan alternative I would like to try it.  I don't know about using the tea idea.  It is the oils in the drops that I need if I'm understanding the sciene properly.

Are Similasan homeopathic eyedrops vegan, I wonder?

Those available in the supermarket don't help? :)
