    Yes, 安眼药 means sleeping pills. However this leads me to a question of my own... I learnt this word in one of my text books, and I didn't notice this before but it actually says here that the pinyin is "ānmiányào". I have only ever seen the character 眼 pronounced as "yǎn", and in my dictionary it also gives "yǎn" as being the only pronunciation of 眼. Is "ānmiányào" incorrect or can 眼 also be pronounced as "mián"?

    Maybe I'm too greenly, because my Chinese is bad - but doesn't it say something with eyes?
