What are Optrex Warming Eye Masks?
Optrex Warming Eye Masks are soothing heated eye masks that help to soothe and relieve tired eyes. These single use masks heat up by themselves when they’re removed from their packaging, so you can use them no matter where you are. This makes them perfect for using when you’re travelling and are looking for a way to relax those tired eyes. You can also use them before bedtime, as a relaxing part of your daily routine that will help to prepare you for a good night’s sleep.
Why do my eyes get tired?
Your eyes can get tired whenever you use them a lot for an extended period of time. For example, your eyes may become tired when you’re using a computer or other device with a screen, reading, writing, or driving. Your eyes can also get tired if you spend a long time in environments which are too bright or too dim. When your eyes are tired, they may feel irritated, watery, or dry, or you may have trouble focusing.
How do Optrex Warming Eye Masks soothe tired eyes?
Optrex Warming Eye Masks use Optrex’s unique Microsteam technology to soothe and hydrate your tired eyes. This technology releases a gentle yet effective heat to your tired eyes, encouraging the muscles to relax and feel less tired. The eye masks are activated when they come into contact with air, heating up within minutes when you remove them from their packaging and helping you to feel relaxed and comfortable.
Can I use this product when I’m going to sleep?
Although this product is perfect to use before bedtime, you should not use Optrex Warming Eye Masks if you think you may fall asleep right away, as you may leave the mask on for too long. If you fall asleep, you may not notice if the mask has an adverse effect on your skin or eyes and may not take it off quickly enough if you need to. Always make sure you’re completely alert before using this product.
Can I use this product if I’m wearing contact lenses?
You shouldn’t use these eye masks if you’re wearing your contact lenses. If you wear contact lenses and want to use this product, remove your contacts before use and replace them afterwards.
