Optrex Contact Lens Drops
Advantages: Positive results, sterile 'pods' of drops, simple to apply.
Disadvantages: A little expensive, contact lenses with a higher moisture content may be better.
I have worn contact lenses for a good while now and at first I never really noticed any problems. Obviously you don't really know what is the 'norm' and you just try to deal with it. During and after wearing contact lenses I find my eyes dry and often suffer from irritation. The disposable lenses I wear occassionally give me trouble, but I also wear glasses most of the time, so daily disposable lenses are what I have. Although they have a high moisture level to help with dryness I still find that from time to time I need a little extra lubrication.
The Optrex range has a product for every different symptom of eye complaint and is available over the counter from your local chemist or supermarket. The Optrex Contact Lens Drops are not a new product but they are a product new to myself as of a few months back. The drops come in the typical Optrex box, the solution is then contained within 10 single dose vials. I love this as it ensures the drops are sterile when you apply them, it also means you can keep some in your bag, some in the fridge etc. The vials are easy to open with a simple plastic tab to tear off. Each vial contains 0.25ml of solution - ideal for applying and then disposing of the packaging. There is little room for error, however, as there are only 4 or 5 drops worth of solution in each vial!
I trust the Optrex brand as I have used their eye drops in the past successfully. I usually store eye drops in the fridge and find that now I am confident using drops I can achieve better results as I can apply the drops accurately. Priced at around £4 they are not cheap, as you are effectively paying 40pence per vial! I think I would prefer the bottle in hindsight for value for money, but overall the fact each vial is sterile for each application appeals to me a lot.
The results of the drops are that if I have trouble once contact lenses are applied then I can use these drops and the lenses seem to fit much comfortably. I sometimes apply the drops beforehand if I am having trouble putting in my contacts, but I usually use them once the contacts are in. Ultimately the drops reveal their effects after I remove the contact lenses. My eyes feel fresher and not dry and itchy. I also find they are less irritated and I don't get red and angry eyes afterwards.
Overall I find the Optrex Contact Lens Drops a great help to my limited contact lense use. If you find you are lacking lubrication at any point during the contact lense wearing process then I advise you consider lenses with a higher moisture content, if this fails to work then the Optrex Contact Lens Drops may well work.
Summary: Ease your eye irritation from lens use with these handy drops.
