There are very few products that have changed my life as much as this product.
Over the lockdown period, I began suffering extreme eye pain. I put it down to old lenses and I thought it was eye strain. I could not get to see a doctor, nor an optician. I thought I would need new glasses, as I suffered from bloodshot eyes and muscle pain. Eventually, after about 8 weeks I was "allowed" a phone call with a medical practitioner (not a doctor) and she suggested I was suffering from dry eye. I was prescribed Evolve solution, Liquid Tears and some other saline type solution. They gave momentary ease but the pain soon came back. When the lockdown was over I went to the optician and they diagnosed extreme dry eye. I had also damaged the surface of the eye from the dryness.
I went back to the doctor (on the phone) and they messed around with different saline solutions but nothing was really working. The original opticians had made a mistake with my new lenses and so I was forced to go to another optician for a second opinion on strengths. After the test, he showed me this product which he was selling at £14 a bottle. He told me that it was the best product on the market for dry eyes. My doctor refused to prescribe it, but they were happy to continue to issue me with 3 different, almost useless products.
The liquid comes in a strange-looking container. Once you get the hang of how to dispense the liquid, it is so easy to use and it really controls the dosing. The first time I put the drops in, my eyes stung like crazy. They went red and offered no solution to the pain. The next day I decided to try again and I applied it four times that day and used 3 drops in each eye. By the night time, there was no pain. By the fourth day, my eyes were back to normal and felt lubricated. I can only presume this liquid coats the eyes in some sort of lubricant, as the effect is amazing. I still put it in my eyes 4 times a day, but there is no pain, I can focus without muscle pain and at night I do not need to apply a night gel. This has truly changed the condition I was suffering from. It has not resolved the cause of the dry eye, but the symptoms and pain have disappeared. It really is amazing.
