Golden Eye Ointment
Advantages: Gets Down To Work Quickly
Disadvantages: Greasy, Hard To Get Out Of The Tube
I had the luxury of having contracted conjunctivitis a month ago and needed an over the counter remedy. My girlfriend brought this back for me and quickly demanded the sum of £4.99, which I thought was a fairly reasonable price and I quickly set to work to mend my broken eye.
The first thing I noticed is that it got to work fairly quickly. By the end of the next day the results were noticeable. I think this is the main benefit. I like something which shows noticeable results as soon as possible and this certainly provided that.
Another benefit is the way it settles into your eye. With some remedies, it can leave your eye blurry for quite a while afterwards while it works itself in. This got to work straight away and the haziness lasts for a couple of minutes at the most. This is a benefit as it doesn't inconvenience you too much and lets you get on with your day and business shortly after rather than leave you staggering around reaching for things helplessly.
It's also got detailed instructions and friendly packaging explaining how to apply and all the things you need to know about it. It's handy to have this information incase anything goes wrong, or if there's anything that you're unsure about.
Furthermore, I do find that the applicator is quite handy, the applicator is designed so that it shoots a small stream of ointment out so you can get the maximum amount out straight into the eye and have the maximum effect.
That does bring me onto a downside though which is that you do have to push and squeeze quite hard in order to get the ointment out. This can be a little bit frustrating when you already have limited sight as it is and just making the cream a little bit easier to get out would be a huge bonus and make the situation easier.
Also, it can be a little messy. The cream is greasy and can leave you feeling with a greasy eye for sometime afterwards. This is just something I've noticed from trying other remedies in the past, but then again it does the job well so it's a small price to pay for something that works well.
Overall this is a great product, it can be messy to apply, and a pain to get out of the tube, but when it gets down to work it does the job, and it does it well meaning that the eye gets better quickly and you can carry on with day to day tasks sooner.
