Treating dry eyes
Dry eyes can make your day or night uncomfortable and frustrating. While some people are naturally susceptible to dry eyes, others have temporary, occasional, or chronic dry eyes caused by allergies, eye strain, aging, certain medical conditions (like glaucoma), or wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes can also be caused by blocked tear ducts or be a side effect of medication or eye surgery. No matter what causes your dry eyes, it is important to treat them to prevent potential damage to your cornea, which could lead to permanent vision loss.
Eye drops for dry eyes
Eye drops are an easy and gentle over-the-counter (OTC) solution that offers immediate relief from dry eyes. For occasional or moderate dry eyes, lubricating eye drops such as Systane Ultra or Refresh Plus work well. For severe dry eyes, a night-time eye ointment such as GenTeal may be more suitable, or your ophthalmologist might suggest prescription eye drops.
Types of eye drops
- Lubricating: Specifically for dry eyes, lubricating eye drops and artificial tears soothe dry eyes and provide temporary eye relief.
- Itch relieving: Most commonly caused by allergies, itchy eyes are often relieved with the help of antihistamine eye drops often in combination with a decongestant.
- Redness reducing: Frequently caused by smoke, wind, dust, chlorinated water, or other irritants, decongestant eye drops such as Visine Clear Eye Drops help clear and relieve red eyes.
- Prescription: If no over-the-counter products offer relief or if your eye symptoms continue, it’s best to seek the advice of a healthcare professional. Symptoms can sometimes be caused as a result of other medical conditions, such as glaucoma or an eye infection like pink eye, which might require antibiotics.
Eye drops for allergies (itchy, red, and dry)
Allergens such as grass, animal dander, dust mites, air pollutants, and feathers can often wreak havoc on sensitive eyes. Products containing antihistamines and/or decongestants, such as Visine Allergy Eye Drops or Naphcon-A Eye Drops, provide quick relief from itchy, red, and dry eyes.
Irritated eyes – causes and treatments
The most frequent reasons for irritated eyes are a foreign object inside, irritants, allergies, wearing of contact lenses, and eye strain (usually from excess computer use).
Treatment options include:
Eye rest: Sometimes simply closing your eyes or applying a warm compress to the eye area is all that’s needed to feel better.
Eye drops: If you don’t have the option of eye rest, the use of soothing or eye drops and products such as Murine Eye Mist and Optrex Advance Preservative Free Tired Eye Drops are simple and effective ways to reduce eye irritation.
Eyewash: If your irritated eyes are a result of foreign material entering, such as dust or chemicals entering the eye, an effective eye treatment includes an eye bath with an eyewash which can help to decontaminate.
