Eye drops: relieve dry eyes with an eye drop solution

Eye irritation, blurred vision, ocular sensitivity… Homoeopathic eye drops for dry eyes can provide an almost immediate sensation of relief. What are the main characteristics of this ocular treatment? Under what conditions should they be used? Here are the must-know details for a thorough understanding.

Relief for dry and red eyes

There are a number of factors that could cause your eyes to dry out and become red, such as:

  • Your environment: dry air, pollution, cigarette smoke, wind, overexposure to screens…

  • A health problem: dry eye syndrome, allergies, conjunctivitis, eye fatigue…

  • Your lifestyle: smoking, excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption, wearing contact lenses for too long…

Eye drops for dry eyes act by lubricating the surface of your eye and maintaining adequate hydration.

Eye drops and pollen allergies

Seasonal allergies, often caused by pollen, can cause unpleasant symptoms in the eyes, such as itching. Eye drops are an effective solution, especially if you want to wear contact lenses during allergy season:

  • They hydrate and lubricate the surface of the eye.

  • They often contain anti-inflammatory ingredients.
  • Some eye drops stabilise the mastocytes, that is, the immune cells responsible for the allergic reaction.

Tips for the use of eye drops

Do your tired eyes need to breathe? Follow the tips below to correctly apply your hydrating eye drops.

What is the best way to apply the drops to the eyes?

First of all, wash your hands thoroughly. This is essential to avoid transferring bacteria into your eyes. You must then tilt your head back and look up to correctly expose the surface of the eye. Gently pull down the lower eyelid and squeeze the bottle to release a single drop. Close your eyes and blink several times after applying the drop to distribute it well over the surface of the eye.

How many applications are required for the eye drops to take effect?

Most natural eye drops begin to act very quickly. However, the full effect may only be felt later, in some cases after 30 minutes. If you still do not feel any relief after half an hour, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

How often should eye drops be used?

The frequency of use of eye drops will depend on the intensity of your symptoms and the type of eye drops used. Simply lubricating eye drops can be used as often as required, several times per day. Antihistamine solutions are also suitable for regular use, between two and four times per day.

Eye drops and contact lenses

If you wear contact lenses, it is important to follow these specific instructions before using eye drops:

  • Remove your daily lenses before applying the drops, then wait at least 15 minutes before putting them back in.

  • Choose sterile, single-dose eye drops: this reduces the risk of infection.

  • Consult your doctor or your ophthalmologist for specific recommendations.

Be doubly vigilant if you wear weekly or bi-weekly lenses, or even monthly contact lenses.
