Your Eye Health Is Important

We are all currently sweltering in tropical conditions, and whilst most people are enjoying this sudden blast of Summer, for others this can cause health problems that are both painful and irritating. The sun, sandy beaches, suntan lotions and even air conditioning can cause our eyes a whole lot of problems, for me, as a diabetic, I seem to suffer from an endless line of styes that are really painful, as well as sticky eyes that are worse in the mornings. All these issues make my eyes feel sore and look red, but there are things that can help.

Thea Pharmaceuticals Limited explain a little more about those issues that affect our Summer eyes. They say:-

Dry Eye Disease is a common condition that affects one in four people and occurs when the eyes do not make enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly. The causes of Dry Eye Disease include screen use, heating, and air conditioning. Awareness of the condition remains low meaning that many of us are suffering needlessly with itchy, sore, gritty, red, blurry and watery eyes. Yet Dry Eye Disease can be effectively managed with eye drops, gels, ointments, or allergy medicines, and Thea have something to suit everyone.

When your eyes are sore, you no longer have to suffer in silence, and the treatments you can use are both easy and quick to use, and safe and gentle enough to be used daily.

My own hero products are the Thealoz Duo Drops (RRP £13.99). These can be used throughout the day when your eyes feel in need of a pick me up. I’ve been keeping these in my bag so when the itchiness starts (for me usually in the corners of my eyes), I can simply apply these and it stops quite quickly. These are great if your eyes get irritated by air conditioning if you are working in an office, and you could also apply them if you are travelling by plane this Summer. I also love the BlephaEyeBag (RRP £19.99) – a reusable eye warming mask to relieve symptoms of eye conditions. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave and apply on your eyes for up to 10 minutes and notice the difference. I find this is great once you have finished work for the day as a way of relaxing and revitalising your eyes, it is just so soothing, and once again, so easy to use.

There are other products that may work for you if you are not a fan of eye drops. The Zaspray (RRP £13.99)– a spray alternative to drops, that helps soothe, hydrate and lubricate your eyes. Can be used up to 4 times per day for relief. Some people find eye drops hard to apply for themselves, so this may be an answer. The BlephaClean (RRP £8.99) – containing a gentle, micellar solution, clean your eye area before you go to sleep or in the morning, much like you would with your skin! You can add this as part of a bedtime routine, and this should help you avoid those sticky, early morning eyes.

You can find all the products mentioned at the Thea shop which you can find here.
