Most of us know the irritation of sore, tired, itchy or dry eyes, and the lovely red-eye they can create. Some products just sooth, others add in some extra assistance. For best results, you’re likely to have to apply drops on a regular basis, so keep the bottle with you. For lotions, a morning and night application is probably required. As these are your eyes, no matter what you do remember that the delicate eye area should be treated gently at all times – you’ll be reminded to do so if they’re sore already.
If you suffer from dry-eyes associated with diabetes, you might want to give Optrex Actimist Eye Spray a go. It’s a bit pricey at but if you don’t like using drops this light spray is used on closed eyes, slowly, gently and effectively. The spray is made from the same ingredient as your natural tear film but contains vitamins A and E. It acts by reducing the loss of moisture from the eye and helps restore the natural moisture balance for relief from dry, irritated eyes. A shelf life of three years means you can use it until the bottle is finished, with no need to throw the bottle away after the 28 days, like many drop treatments. The spray bottle contains 100 applications and is available in pharmacies and supermarkets for around £14.95.
