Dry eye is a common eye condition in people who have diabetes. It’s estimated that people with diabetes have up to a 50% chance of developing dry eye, and the risk increases as you get older, too. Symptoms of dry eye include a stinging or burning sensation in the eye, feeling like you have something gritty in your eye, eye redness, blurry vision, heavy eyelids and eye fatigue. There are various treatments for dry eye ranging from eye drops and ointments to medications to insertion of eye plugs — even surgery is an option for some people.
If you suffer from dry eye — or another eye condition such as styes or inflammation of the eyelids — consider trying the Optix 55 Eye Compress Mask (remember to consult with your eye doctor for any issues with your eyes). Pop this comfy mask in the microwave for 20 seconds to sooth uncomfortable eyes — you’ll get much needed relief, thanks to its Hydro Heat technology that absorbs moisture from the air and releases it as clean, moist heat. This mask is a great choice for tired eyes and sinus headaches, too. The Optix 55 Eye Compress Mask is hand-washable and comes with a storage pouch to keep it clean. Give your eyes the soothing relief they deserve!
