What are Minims Artificial Tears?

How to use these eye drops
These eye drops are in single use doses. Once used, they must be thrown away. Start by thoroughly washing and drying your hands. Using a mirror to help you see what you’re doing, pull your lower eyelid down gently, then gently squeeze the bottle util some liquid dallas inside your lower eyelid. Make sure the dropper doesn’t touch any parts of your eye. Keep your eyelid closed for a few seconds before moving onto the other eye.
What are the symptoms of dry eyes?
It can sometimes be difficult to figure out what exactly is causing your eyes to feel uncomfortable. If you’re not completely sure, you should speak to your GP or optometrist for expert advice. You may be suffering with dry eyes if your eyes are:

- More watery than usual
