If you find yourself blinking often, feel like you always have something in your eyes, or have a burning sensation in your eyes, you may have something called dry eye. According to the National Eye Institute, dry eye occurs when the quality and/or quantity of tears don’t keep the surface of the eye adequately lubricated. Your risk of developing dry eye increases if you are older, female, take certain medications (such as antihistamines and antidepressants), have seasonal allergies, and have certain health conditions, including diabetes. In fact, it’s estimated that more than half of people who have diabetes also have dry eye. One reason for this may be due to polyneuropathy that can damage nerves in the eye, affecting the ability to form tears.
While there is no cure for dry eye, Refresh Optive Mega-3 Lubricant Eye Drops can provide much-needed relief. The preservative-free formula contains flaxseed and castor oils to help restore the lipid layer in the eye and prevent tear evaporation. It’s been clinically proven to treat the uncomfortable symptoms of dry eye, and is safe to use as often as needed. Refresh Optive Mega-3 Lubricant Eye Drops comes in 30 single-use vials that can easily be tucked into your purse, briefcase, or pocket for fast relief, any time. And, these vials require no shaking prior to use. If you think you might have dry eye, talk with your eye-care specialist, and ask about using Refresh Optive Mega-3 Lubricant Eye Drops.
