Optrex Red Eyes Drops
Advantages: Soothing. Relieves grittiness. Specialised applicator.
Disadvantages: Quite expensive.
I have used Optrex drops many times when I've needed to, and one product from the range that I have tried most recently is Optrex Red Eyes Drops. These drops were recommended to me when I was suffering from red and gritty eyes that I was suffering from mostly through tiredness. The drops contained 10 mls of the solution and it cost me £4.29 from Boots. I think this is a fairly expensive price considering the ingredients are fairly inexpensive when bought individually, but for convenience I thought it was worth spending the money on.
The Optrex Red Eyes Drops comes in a small plastic bottle inside a box which contains a patient and product information leaflet which clearly gives details such as ingredients, directions, usage, side effects etc. This information is comprehensive and really did tell me everything that I wanted to know. The bottle has a long shelf life, but once opened it should be stored in a cool dry place and must be discarded after 28 days.
The bottle has a screw lid which, once unscrewed, reveals an eye-dropper applicator. The applicator makes it as easy as possible to apply the drops to the eyeball, but I think it is still easier if you have someone to put the eye drops in for you. The solution contains witch-hazel and Naphazoline Hydrochloride, both of which have been proven to be effective in the relief of minor eye irritations and inflammation. I would generally apply 2 drops to each eye when my eyes feel red and gritty, and I would then reapply about 4 hours later. The recommendation is that the drops are not reapplied more than 4 times in 24 hours, but I have to say that usually 2 applications is all I need and this seems to relieve any minor irritation.
When the eye drops are first applied, my eyes do feel initially a bit stingy. However, after about 30 seconds the stingy goes and actually my eyes feel much better almost immediately. They eye drops are soothing and they definitely relieves any feel of grittiness. When my eyes are bloodshot, the eye drops also reduce the redness although this can take longer and generally only tends to disappear after a good nights sleep.
Overall, I would recommend the Optrex Red Eyes Drops for minor eye irritations.
