AMO Blink Contact Eye Drops
Advantages: Can use with contacts, moisture
If you're a contact wearer you will know how great they are but also how annoying they can be at times too. I wear contacts as I can't really see without them but after wearing them for quite a few hours my eyes get really dry and also one or the other will hurt at times too and I keep on having to blink to make it not go blurry again. I discussed it with my optician at Vision Express (who are really good by the way) and the advise was to either cut down on the amount of hours I wear contacts during the day (not always possible) or use eye drops. I have tried to cut down and sometimes I don't wear them on certain days but on the days I do wear them for long periods of time these eye drops are great.
Blink Contact Eye Drops say they, "provide soothing relief and long lasting comfort for all contact lens wearers." According to the box, "Blink Contact Eye Drops can help restore comfortable moisture levels within the eye, specially formulated for those who wear contact lens or those who suffer from allergies. Modern lifestyles mean eyes can be put under strain from long periods of concentration, or working in front of computers, low humidity working environments or long periods of travel. The gentle formula relieves dryness and irritation caused by dust, glare, pollen, air pollution or overwork, giving more comfortable lens wear all day long. Dry, irritated, fatigued and red eyes can be quickly soothed by Blink Contact Eye Drops."
The drops are really easy to use and the nice thing is that you can add them to your eyes when you have your contacts in. I find this really helpful when I am about to do some driving and I still need my contacts in but also need some moisture added to my eye. The drops come in little plastic viles which is really handy because I can keep just a few in my bag and use them when I need them. Then, you just twist off the bit of plastic at the top and turn it upside down and squeeze the drop into your eyes.
I can immediately feel a nice moist sensation and I let it get into the eye a little bit before I blink and close my eyes and let the moisture distribute all over my eye. The drops do not sting in any way, they are just nice and comforting and immediately take away my dry eyes.
They are a little bit expensive at £5.49 for the pack but I don't use them everyday and I like the effect that have on my eyes.
