Dry, itchy eyes are far from unusual, but if you find that you’re experiencing it quite often, you might want to consider what’s causing it in the first place.
Usually, the cause is something simple, for example, people over 50 can be much more likely to experience dry eyes than younger people, but there are lots of everyday things that can make your eyes feel dry and uncomfortable.
Some of the most common causes of dry eyes include:
Optrex’s Dry and Tired Eye range is designed to care for your dehydrated eyes, relieving that itchy, gritty feeling.
These products work in a similar way to your natural tears, refreshing your eyes’ natural lipid layer and providing lubrication along the surface of your eye.
This helps to make your eyes feel more comfortable and reduces symptoms like redness, burning, and discomfort.
These products are available in drops and sprays, with some even being suitable to be used with your contact lenses, so you can find the perfect solution to your dry eyes.
When it’s time to use your eye drops, begin by reading the patient information leaflet that comes with your drops.
This will tell you how many drops to use in your eyes, will let you know if you need to shake the bottle of drops before use, and lots more helpful information too.
Once you’ve read the leaflet thoroughly, it’s time to use your drops.
Start by tilting your head backwards and use one hand to gently pull down the lower lid of the eye you wish to treat first.
Pick up the bottle of eye drops with your other hand and hold it over your eye.
Look up and gently squeeze the bottle of drops to deposit as many drops as you need into your eye.
Blink a few times to spread the drops evenly over your eye and repeat the process in your other eye if you need to.
Optrex Actimist is a unique range of eye care products that are sprayed onto closed eyes, rather than applied directly to your eye itself.
When you spray the solution onto your eyelids, its ingredients gather in the corners of your eyes and along your lash line.
This means that when you blink the active ingredients are dispersed evenly over the surface of your eye where they can get to work.
This makes Actimist products perfect for those who find that they struggle to use eye drops or want to be able to use their treatment easily when they’re on the go.
Bacterial conjunctivitis is a type of eye infection that is caused by bacteria getting into your eye.
It can make your eye look red and sore, which is why it’s also known as red-eye or pink eye.
Conjunctivitis will usually get better within a few weeks if you don’t treat it, but as it can be a very irritating condition, many people opt to use simple medicated treatments to help speed up the process.
Some of the most common symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis include:
Optrex Bacterial Conjunctivitis Ointment contains an active ingredient called Chloramphenicol, which is an antibiotic.
It’s used to treat eye infections, including bacterial conjunctivitis, where it gets to work fighting the bacteria that are causing your infection, keeping them from multiplying and making the problem worse.
It works quickly, with most patients seeing an improvement to their condition within just a couple of days.
Hay fever eye drops are the ideal remedy for allergic symptoms which affect your eyes.
This includes symptoms such as:
Many medicated hay fever eye drops available over the counter contain an active ingredient called sodium cromoglicate.
Sodium cromoglicate works by reducing inflammation, easing red, watery, or itchy eyes when you have an allergic reaction.
Most hay fever eye drops shouldn’t be used when you’re wearing contact lenses.
If you wear contacts and need a way to ease your hay fever symptoms, we’d recommend speaking to your optician, doctor, or pharmacist for advice.
Alternatively, you may consider wearing glasses until hay fever season is over so you can use eye drops instead.
