Eye drops are not my thing. It’s a torture for me to drop something into my eyes but things change. Particularly in this freezing weather, I sometimes get reddened eyes which isn’t pleasing to see. One time I had bleary-eyed specifically my left eye for about 3 days. I didn’t know what to do. I just let it heal itself. Fortunately it did! I guess this would be an occasional thing now. So I purchased something that may help me battle this episodic dilemma.
- Contains five active ingredients at maximum concentrations, including taurine that facilitates turnover (metabolism) in the eyes, chondroitin sulfate sodium that protects and moisturizes the cornea, and vitamin B12 (the “red vitamin”) that relieves tiredness of the eye muscles, to relieve eye stress and promote healthy eyes free of redness.
- Use this product if you experience these symptoms:
Tired eyes, conjunctival congestion, bleary eyes (increase in eye mucus, etc.), itchy eyes, prevention of eye disease (after swimming, when dust or sweat enters the eyes, etc.), blepharitis (soreness of eyelids), ophthalmia due to light rays such as ultraviolet rays (e.g., snow blindness), discomfort while wearing hard contact lenses

Does it work?
Surprisingly, yes. About 3 days ago, my left eye got bleary again. I instilled 2 drops just once and the next day, it went back to its calm state. While the product was there sitting in my eye, I didn’t feel any tingling sensation. It felt rather refreshing as it had the cold temperature. Absorption was a bit quick. Luckily, my eye didn’t show any allergic reactions after using it for the first time. I forgot to take photos. Believe it or not, this will be my savior for as long as it gets its job done. I will also use this whenever my eyes feel tired.
