Advantages: Single dose applicators
Disadvantages: Not readily available
A few months ago whilst shopping in Tesco I was attracted to a demonstration of Allerclear eye drops. To be more accurate, it was a lady explaining the benefits and giving out small samples.
I was particularly interested as the hay fever season was approaching fast and I always seem to have problems with my eyes at this time of the year. Apart from that, I also suffer with light sensitivity and often need eye drops to ease my eyes as a result of this. It isn't surprising that I came away with a sample!
I have to admit that it was several weeks before I felt the need to use this sample, but I was very impressed when I did. My eyes felt tired and itchy and I felt I should try the sample and find out if it was worth buying more.
I can say that I was very impressed as it worked quickly and my eyes felt improved immediately so I made up my mind to buy some the next time I went shopping. This, however, was NOT so easy as no-where seemed to sell the product. This includes the large Tesco where I got the sample in the first place! Eventually I visited their website and found that I could buy directly from them although it stated that it was available from most supermarkets. I have since found it in both Morrison's and Tesco's so obviously it took some time to reach the stores!
The product: Allerclear Eye Drops - are described as a sterile, preservative-free moistening solution for irritated eyes containing the herb Eyebright. The only other ingredient being an isotonic phosphate buffer solution matched to your own tear fluid. They are distributed by Potters Limited of Wigan.
Each dose is contained in a single dose container - the box contains ten of these small strips each containing enough to treat (in my case) both eyes. They have to be separated, but the general idea is very appealing as there is obviously no contamination as can happen with a bottle. Detailed instructions for use are included in the box.
Side effects: The information sheet states that none have yet been observed but does warn not to use if you have previously had any bad reaction to any of the ingredients.
Use: for irritation or discomfort of the eyes caused by small particles,
to moisten dry eyes caused by contact lenses,
for tired eyes,
for light sensitivity.
The drops are suitable for all contact lens wearers and for children. They can be used during pregnancy and whilst breast feeding.
Would I recommend? Yes, certainly. I was very pleased with the effect that I had after using these drops. My eyes felt soothed immediately and there was no stinging as you can sometimes feel when using eye drops. I was also impressed by the single dose idea. The only problem I found was locating a stockist but fortunately that is now solved.
