Regular eye care helps protect your eyes from getting so distressed in the first place. Did you know that there are several types of eye care products available, each with a special function? Check out what OcuFresh has to say about each below:
What is Eye Wash?
Most people are not clear on the differences between eye washes, eye lubricants, other assorted eye drops and saline rinses. They each provide different forms of relief. It is good to understand how they differ. Following are the 4 most popular over-the-counter eye product categories along with a brief description of each:
- Eye Wash: The way most use Eye Wash is as remedy for urgent care situations. It is a fluid that can be used to safely and quickly wash harmful substances out of the eye, such as dust, irritants, or any other foreign matter that caused irritation or discomfort to the eye.
- Eye Drops That “Get The Red Out”: These eye drops are called “constrictors”. They force the blood vessels in your eyes to constrict. This is how they make the red quickly disappear. The effect of such drops is largely aesthetic, not therapeutic. The more such drops are used, the more they become necessary to reduce redness. This is because blood vessels forced to constrict through the use of eye drops tend to expand even more aggressively when the drops are discontinued. This can result in an almost addictive pattern of use and lead to long term health problems.
- Lubricant Eye Drops: Eye lubricants, also called demulcents, add moisture to provide temporary relief for dry eye syndrome. They are not eye washes. They do not offer the benefits of cleaning. They simply add lubricants and moisture to dry eyes.
- Rewetting Eye Drops: When you do not want to remove your contact lenses, but still need to add moisture to your eyes and lenses, use rewetting eye drops.
- Sterile Saline Rinse: Saline rinse is for rinsing your contacts after disinfection. Saline is also for wetting your contacts just before you put them in your eyes. You can remove your contacts anytime during the day, rinse them with saline, and put them back in your eye. Saline rinse should not be used as eye drops.
My husband works outdoors and often gets debris and dust in his eye in his work environment. It can be very painful and hard to clean out. The OcuFresh Eye Care single use bottles are perfect for him to keep in his pocket or truck on the work site. He can take it out when needed and be back working in a matter of minutes. I have used the lubricant drops when my eyes become dry and tired after reading or working extended periods of time. The drops felt so good and it was a great feeling to have fresh eyes!
