Optrex Eye Wash With Eye Bath
Advantages: Cools and Soothes eyes!
I have recently been suffering from tired and itchy eyes. I don't get much sleep as my 6 month old daughter is teething and I occasionally suffer from insomnia which makes matters worse! I have used Optrex eye wash in the past and I had forgotten how good it actually is. A bottle of the wash costs £3 for 100ml from Asda, you can also get it from pharmacies and other supermarkets.
The wash comes in a transparent glass bottle, you also get a flexible eye bath to use with the wash. The wash has multiple uses it can be used to wash the eyes and provide relief if your eyes have been irritated by grit, dust or smoke. It can also be used to replenish and replace moisture for tired and uncomfortable eyes caused by day to day living, so things like looking at a computer all day, wearing contact lenses, tiredness and being in a polluted environment.
The wash is straightforward to use you are advised to make sure you have clean hands before you start. You need to fill the eye bath around 1/3 full with the wash and then tilt your head forward and place the bath over the eye, you then need to raise your head back up and open your eye to allow the wash to cover the surface of your eye, you then need to rock your head back and forward gently for about 30 seconds. Once you have finished you simply pour the remaining wash down the sink and then rinse the bath out. You then repeat the same process for the other eye.
The bath that comes with the wash is made from a flexible plastic, it fits perfectly around the eye and as it is bendy no liquid should escape if it is held in the right position. The bath is easy to use, it would be well suited to those who don't like eye drops.
As soon as the liquid washed over my eye it felt soothing and cooling. the wash contains witch hazel which is known for it's cooling and mild astringent actions. After using this my eyes felt cooled and relieved. It lasted a few hours, of course it's not as good as getting a decent nights sleep! It also releaved puffiness under my eyes better than any creams I have tried!
The wash is gentle enough to be used everyday and once opened can be kept for up to 3 months. It is also recommended that if more than one person is using the bath you steralise it in hot water for 10 minutes to avoid the risk of infection transferring.
I would definately buy this again it is an essential in my bathroom.
Summary: An essential for tired eyes!
