      Great product - really recommend for anyone suffering from dry or irritated eyes

      This is magic in an eye drop!

      BACKGROUND
      I have been wearing glasses for some 10 years - I am short sighted, only with a weak prescription and I wear my glasses mainly for driving, cinema etc. Having worn contact lenses for some 8 years, on a social basis - mainly at weekends when out with friends, as an alternative from glasses and in order to ensure that I can see everyone! I recently went to Boots Opticians in order to have a contact lense check up and order more lenses. I was quite shocked when I was told that I was being referred to the Opthalmic Consultant at the Hospital in order to have further analysis done on my eyes as they appeared to be very dry. 3-4 weeks later (during this time I did not have any contact lenses!) I was sent an appointment for the hospital.

      HOSPITAL & AFTER CARE (OPTIVE)
      I attended the hospital, where I was subjected to a series of tests and the consultant informed me that continual use of my contact lenses should only be done on a short term basis - ie, they should only be worn for a maximum of 4-6 hours at a time and then removed and disposed of. This was news to me as I had always had monthly lenses prior to this time. The consultant then went on to recommend Optive Eye drops, I had never really used Eye drops before, certainly not lubricating or moisturising drops as I was unaware that I had a problem with my eyes being dry.

      Having been Cabin Crew for some 7 years (although not wearing lenses on board the aircraft) I had unknowingly subjected my eyes to 7 years or enhanced dry-ness and artificial air. The delights of flying! I was advised to purchase Optive Eye drops and use them 4 - 5 times a day for a period of 4 weeks before my return appointment.

      I have been using them now for approximately 2 weeks and the difference is unbelievable. I was not aware that I was suffering from dry eyes, certainly not to the extent as described by the consultant, however I think that the feeling that I was mistaking for tiredness or strain was actually the dryness coming through.

      These drops are easy to use - relatively cheap (although not all chemists stock them over the counter - therefore they would be £7.20 on NHS prescription). They leave your eyes feeling not only refreshed but also 'awake'. I am hoping that when I return to the Consultant the results will be positive and I will then be able to return to using my contact lenses more frequently as required.

      These drops can be used with contact lenses and are suitable for Contact Lense wearers. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is suffering from dry or irritated eyes - for me, these have been a god send, when I didnt even realise that I needed them.
