Frequently Asked Questions

Eye wash is typically made from purified water with small amounts of salt or boric acid.

 

While boric acid can be irritating in some cases, tiny amounts of the chemical are added to eye washes to safely and effectively fight bacteria.

Eye wash solutions are ideal to have on hand in case of an emergency, like when your eye has been contaminated with a foreign object.

 

They’re also helpful for people with eye irritation caused by pollen, chlorine, pollution or other irritants.

 

Using an eye wash for daily cleaning is generally unnecessary unless you’ve been advised otherwise by your optometrist.

Using an eye wash solution is a good idea when your eyes are irritated, stinging or itching, to rinse away any harmful particles and chemicals.

 

You should always wash your hands prior to use to prevent any germs getting into your eye; then, lean back and stretch your eyes wide.

 

Squeeze the bottle to add the solution to your eyes, but don’t touch the delicate surface of your eye with the dropper.

 

Slowly lift your head with your eyes open,and gently rock your head from side-to-side to ensure the wash clears all of the dirt, dust and other debris from the eye.

To use an eye bath, fill with the water or eye wash until it’s about a third full.

 

Bend your head forward, hold the eye bath by its base and place your eye over the eye bath.

 

Keeping hold of the eye bath, tip your head back with your eyes open so the solution can flow into the eye and gently rock your head from side to side for about 30 seconds.

 

Make sure to sterilise your eye bath in boiling water before packing it away in your first aid kit for future use.
