Optrex Dry Eye Drops
Advantages: Easy to use, work quickly and very well, price is not prohibitive to me for daily usage.
As I am a sometimes wearer of contact lenses I can suffer from dry eyes from time to time. I can be prone to feeling like I have something in my eye but this is actually caused by the dryness as I found out last year after several visits to the Doctor about the irritated feeling in my eye. I even had my eyes tested in my quest to find out what was causing the irritation so it was nice to finally have a suggestion that would help my problem. These eye drops are ones that I have been using on and off for the past year or so now and they are available for just under £4.00 from Boots stores and the Boots website.
These eye drops are suitable for contact lens wearers, which I am, and this was my main reason for selecting these ones. The drops are very simple to use and all I need to do is unscrew the lid, tilt my head back and then use the lid dropper to release one or two drops in to my eye. I find these drops very simple to drop in but then I use contact lenses so I am not squeamish about things being in or near my eye. The liquid is clear and it does not have any scent at all which is always good. I find the drops very simple indeed to use and this is the main reason I have continued using them.
When the drops first hit my eye I have to blink a few times but this only ceases to make the drops get in to my eye thoroughly so this is not a problem at all but it does usually mean that if I am using two drops in each eye that I space them a moment or two apart to avoid too much eye watering and blurriness. After the drops have been in my eye for a moment or two my eyes start to feel noticeably different. I do find that if I blink a little less when the drops have first gone in that they begin to work even quicker but it is quite quick anyway so this is not a real problem to be honest.
Overall I must say that these drops work incredibly well for me. They keep my eyes feeling moist and they stop the dry irritated feeling that I can get from time to time from wearing contact lenses. The price of these drops is not restrictive and I usually purchase them when they are on a buy one get one half price special offer that seems to pop up frequently on the Boots website.
Summary: Easy to use eye drops that work incredibly well at moistening up my eyes.
