Why are my eyes tired?
There are many reasons why your eyes may feel tired or achy because they go through so much in a day! Not getting enough sleep can be a big factor that causes tired eyes. You should aim to get a minimum of 8 hours a night. Modern life can involve looking at screens for long periods of time which can strain our eyes and make them feel achy at the end of a long day at work. Try and take regular breaks to rest your eyes during the day. It may be hard to find time in the week to sit back and relax, but it is so important for both your physical and mental health. Allowing yourself to recharge can help to keep your eyes healthy and prevent them from becoming tired.

The Optrex Warming Mask warms instantly once opened and has Microsteam technology which releases gentle, soothing heat to relax and relieve tired eyes. The mask is fragrance-free and is perfect for using before bed after a long day at work or whilst travelling. Once used the mask can be easily disposed.
