Home Lifestyle Dry Eye Treatment : My Product Routine

Dry Eye Treatment : My Product Routine

by InvisiblyMe

There are a few health issues, eye conditions and chronic illnesses that can result in dry eyes, including autoimmune conditions like like Sjogrens. I live with dry eyes, nose and mouth as a result of an autoimmune condition. Lifestyle factors can also play a role and affect those without chronic health issues, like the use of digital screens, central heating, allergies, air conditioning and dry environments. Dry eyes can be difficult and frustrating to live with, but thankfully there are some products out there to help manage them. Here’s a look at the dry eye treatment I use in my regular routine, all of which I would recommend.

1. Blink Tears Eye Drops

There are various eye drops on the market for tired, gritty, sore, irritated or dry eyes. They vary in terms of specific need targeted, size and price, so it’s always worth shopping around and checking reviews. You may need to try a few things before you find one that works well for you but I’ve found Blink to be fine for me and it’s one of the cheaper options. For some people, prescription drops or recommendations from an eye specialist may need to be sought if OTC options aren’t effective. These work as artificial tears, which is great when your eyes need an instant refresh.

The Blink range of lubricating eye drops include : 

  • Refreshing – Daily drops to instantly awaken tired eyes
  • Intensive – Soothing drops for long lasting relief from the feeling of tired, dry eyes
  • Intensive Plus – As above but a little stronger relief 
  • Contacts – Refreshment for contact lens wearers 

I use Intensive because it’s cheaper than Intensive Plus and I still need regular drops with either version. The difference is just that Intensive Plus includes 0.18% more Sodium Hyaluronate (Viscosity Enhancer) : It’s 0.20% in the Intensive drops and 0.38% in the Intensive Plus.

It’s only a 10ml bottle, which is similar to many such drops. It doesn’t seem like much but you can get plenty of applications from the one bottle. The price does add up if you have very dry eyes or Sjogrens and need drops a couple of times each day as I do. That said, it’s well worth it for the relief, comfort and to maintain your vision without the blurring or stinging from dry eyes.

The drops are liquid gel with a reasonable consistency so that they’re easier to drip into your eyes than a thicker gel. I hated the idea of eye drops at first, being rather squeamish around eyes. I pull my eye open with one hand and use the other to add drops, and even after years of practice, I often still blink when trying to do it. It takes time and patience, and I didn’t think I would ever say this, but I couldn’t live without eye drops. They’re the one thing that provides actual relief when you need it, instantly.

2. Therapearl Eye Mask / Eye Doctor Eye Compress 

Warm therapy can help alleviate stinging symptoms, blocked tear ducks, blepharitis and other eye complaints. You can use these eye masks hot or cold, so I keep a couple in the freezer to take out as needed. I use them frozen for migraines, and warm for when I want a dry eye compress. 

The Therapearl masks are what I’ve used for a number of years. Nothing lasts forever but unfortunately regular use of these often sees the plastic edging develop small holes, so you need to “keep an eye”, so to speak, on their condition. That said, I’ve found them to be fantastic, very convenient and comfortable enough to use.

The Eye Doctor is part of The Body Doctor brand that also sells face masks during the Covid pandemic. Their antibacterial eye mask compress is a new one to me that I only tried in early 2022, buying directly from their website after a previously positive experience shopping there.

I found the idea of a different material to the plastic Therapearl types appealing, along with the larger size to cover more of the sinus area, where I struggle with inflammation. 

Having had time to try the new TED eye mask, I can safely say it is gorgeously made, much more comfortable and silky soft. The build quality is better too, so I’d like to think it’ll last better through use. It feels a bit like a bead-filled wheat bag style affair with no divide between the eyes, so you can adjust how much you get at which parts of your eye, forehead, sinus area etc. It has a soft elastic strap that you can adjust with velcro so you can get it just the right size for you.

The only downside is that because of it being made from thicker, silky material rather than plastic, it doesn’t get as cold in the freezer. I’ll still use Therapearl when I need icy cold for eye pain with migraines. I’m now using The Eye Doctor from the freezer when I just want a calming cool, and then it’ll get a lot of use in the microwave for dry eyes.

3. Eye Doctor Eye Cleanser – Liquid & Wipes

One of the many things that makes me so incredibly attractive is the gunk in my eyelashes. It’s not sleep, it’s build up from dry eyes and blocked ducts, and it sticks my eyelashes together. Damp tissue doesn’t work well and I spent a few years doing just that, watching as my eyelashes were pulled out or even snapped in half. I now use a specific eyelid cleaner and it works well to get rid of said gunk, as well as leaving my eyes feeling more comfortable, hygienic and refreshed.

The Eye Doctor Lid Cleaner is for “daily eyelid hygiene”, though you can use it as often or infrequently as you need. It includes organ oil, coconut oil and micellar water to clean and care for sensitive eyelids and lashes. It’s alcohol-free and fragrance-free, suitable for sensitive peepers and those with eye conditions, but speak to your eye specialist if you’re unsure. 

The Eye Doctor explains that this is suitable for different conditions, including the likes of dry eye, MGD and blepharitis. 

To use – You just pop a little of the liquid onto a cotton pad then gently wipe it over your eye lids and lashes. Simples. What I also love is that they do individually packaged wipes in a box of 20; these are great for convenience if you’re out of the home and want to take a few with you. The wipes, both regular and biodegradable, are surprisingly large and soft, making cleaning and soothing sore peepers and eyelashes so much more comfortable. I therefore tend to use the liquid at home but I’ve also got a box of the wipes for back-up if I need them for longer days out or hospital holidays.

The specialised formula removes “dirt, debris and make-up form the eyelids and the base of the lashes without irritation”. The ingredients also help to hydrate, condition, cool and soothe the skin. 

The brand is proud of being recommended by various patients and professionals. For instance, the TV doctor Dr Hilary Jones, and Dr Colin Parsloe, an Opthalmology specialist, both recommend the Eye Doctor products.

I’m always one for a bargain so these seemed a bit pricey to me at first, yet similar products actually seem more expensive. This is still the most effective, gentle and best-priced cleanser for dry eyes, sore eyes, eye gunk, and so on that I’ve come across. This liquid and wipes have turned out to be a great investment over the last couple of years, I just wish I’d taken the plunge and tried them sooner.

4. Simple Brightening Eye Gel 

The Simple Protect ‘N’ Glow Brightening Eye Gel comes in a 25ml soft tube, designed to give your eye area a boost of cooling hydration. The gel formula is light, non-greasy and fast-absorbing, giving you an instant refresh for tired, irritated eyes. The brand also claims this gel can help “visibly reduce dark circles and provides antioxidant benefits”.

The skin-loving formula includes 5% of hydrating actives, 3% antioxidants (including alfafa), the vitamins B3 + C + E, ginger, and other minerals. It’s designed to be kind to skin and suitable for all skin types. It’s dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested for safety and efficiency. In keeping with the crux of the brand, it contains no harsh chemicals, artificial perfumes, colours or alcohol. It’s also vegan and PETA certified as being cruelty-free, so you can rest assured it wasn’t tested on animals. 

To Use – This can be used daily, just apply a small amount with clean fingers around your eye area. It can also be applied to the eyelids. You might want to use it as a brightening gel to kickstart your morning, a hydrating primer before make-up, or throughout the day to soothe uncomfortable eyes. 

This isn’t a direct dry eye treatment per se, in that it doesn’t go in the eyes or create tears like drops do. It just makes your external eye area more comfortable, hydrated and refreshed. You needn’t have a dry eye condition to use and benefit from this. They describe it as great for screen-stressed eyes, which probably applies to many of us these days. 

This is available at various outlets but it’s worth checking for offers. For instance, you might have a Boots Advantage card and a discount code to get it at a good price, but when I last purchased this I found it cheaper on Amazon.

Dry Eye Treatment Regimes : Making It Manageable

Dry eye treatment products aren’t usually cheap, but the above that I use are what I’ve found to be better priced and reasonable value for money when considering their benefits. Dry eye conditions can be pretty miserable, but if you can find a routine with products to help, the symptoms can hopefully be better managed. 

Please note that the above are just over the counter products. Please speak to your doctor or eye specialist if you have any questions or if you suddenly develop a dry eye condition. For some people and certain conditions, prescription options may be required.

Thanks for all that great advice. I’m having sjogren nose and throat issues lately in the middle of the night, and find a bottle of saline nose drops next to my bed quite helpful.

I’m sorry you’re having a flare up of Sjogren’s issues, and that they’re disrupting your sleep by the sounds of it. It’s can get to be pretty miserable when it’s all added together. I’m glad the saline nose drops are helpful at least ???? I’ve used a saltwater spray which is okay for temp relief of dry nose but not saline nose drops, so I might have a look for those. xx

I had dry eyes after getting laser eye surgery, and it was tough to get used to putting drops in, because I’m also squeamish about that kind of thing. I used Systane Ultra drops in a bottle regularly, and then used the single-use preservative-free vials if I needed them more than a couple of times a day. It all got rather expensive.

Reply
InvisiblyMe May 29, 2022 - 1:45 pm

I was oddly terrified the first time I put drops in, and for the next dozen times after that. I’ve not overcome the squeamishness around eyes but I do find it’s a habitual routine that’s more devoid of thinking, so I just do it and it’s not a problem. I still have to hold my eye open to get them in though as I can’t not blink. Systane Ultra Drops, that’s a good suggestion – they are pricier but they may work better for some people so it’s worth keeping an open mind and trying whatever you can. It’s a shame you can’t get samples of these things like you do with perfume to see what’s most effective because the price really does add up. x

I have chronic eye dryness and use Restasis eye drops. Have to have a script for the drops. Dry eyes are awful and you need to find what works.

Have a fabulous day, Caz. Big hug. ♥

Restasis isn’t one I’d heard of before but thank you for sharing this as it could be helpful for others – it might take some trial and error to find what works best and what’s affordable, and sometimes it may mean prescription products are needed. It’s a good investment if it can help because you’re right, dry eyes are pretty awful to live with.
I hope you’re having a lovely weekend, Sandee! ???? xx

Hi, Caz–

Good overview. I have dry eyes and use Refresh Optive, which are pricey but necessary for me because I’m allergic to preservatives. Also, the plastic waste of throwing away those single use tiny vials upsets me. But without them, I have painfully sore eyes.

I plan to try the Simple Eye Glow. Thanks!.

Thank you for sharing what you use, Annie, it’s great to share ideas as it can take some trial & error for people to find what works for them. I’m sorry you’re allergic to preservatives, I can imagine that making finding suitable products both more challenging and more expensive. The plastic waste is a shame, but I still think in some instances it is necessary and better for hygiene, too. It would be better if just more plastics could be recycled, as things like eye drop vials currently aren’t. With a greater focus on eco initiatives, hopefully eligibility for recycling with likewise expand. x

Hi Caz – thanks so much for this post. I get dry eyes on and off and find use a warm eye compress which was recommended to be by an eye nurse. It does help even though I don’t use it as often as I should do… Hadn’t seen the Simple eye gel before though so will give that a try 🙂

I’m glad the eye compress is beneficial, though I also find, like you, that I don’t use it enough either. It’s a good excuse to slow down for a few minutes and shut your eyes because you can’t do anything while it’s on. Maybe we could look at it as self-care and two minutes for some zen, then put it on our to-do lists so we actually do it regularly. xx

Great post Caz! Your routine for dry eyes sounds very effective. I used to suffer from dry eyes when my thyroid condition was not treated and all these tips and products would have been very useful. Thank you so much for sharing!

Thanks lovely, I’m glad you like the post! I think it’s great to be able to share ideas and product suggestions but it can be a case of trial and error finding things that work well for us as individuals, so I hope something here might help others, even just to inspire them to look at eye drops or heated compresses. I hope that with adequate thyroid treatment you don’t get any disruptive symptoms like dry eyes anymore ???? xx

such a great post Caz! I’m responding here since my comments don’t go through for some reason. I love this post as I suffer from them too. I got the compresses and this reminds me to actually use them. I’m suppose to use the drops every hour.. yikes!! ????????????????

This may be helpful to me! I have had “concretions” removed twice. No one knows what causes them, but they look like pimples inside the eyelid, but they are very hard. I had a couple removed last fall, but I don’t think that doctor was thorough, so I went to another last month and he scraped both eyelids to try to get any that might be forming that were too small for him to see. But my eyes still “feel” like there is something in them some nights, so I will try a couple of these products. particularly the mask!
Blessings, c.a.

InvisiblyMe May 31, 2022 - 4:09 pm

Aw that must be uncomfortable for your eyes, C.A. The fact they look like pimples make me think of the start of a stye, which can then turn into a red bump with some swelling. The thing with those is they usually go on their own, whereas it seems like concretions can only be professionally removed. A warm compress, like The Body Doctor’s eye mask I put here, can be good for loosening things up as well as soothing, and it’s antibacterial as it’s important not to get more bacteria in the eye. Have you tried eye drops to see if they help with soreness and irritation? I’m sorry you’ve got to put up with these concretions but I hope you can try some of these to make your eyes a bit more comfortable after they’ve bee removed. ????

I use various OTC products for dry eyes, something I had no idea I had other than the annoying and constant drippy eyes whenever I went outside. (How that was dry eyes, I didn’t understand.) Always carry a tissue to wipe my eyes, even with the eye drops and also use Refresh Digital when doing prolonged computer work. I use the regular Systane Dry Eye Relief or other if on sale. Also I take Eye and Vision supplements that contain Lutein. I can’t offer evidence of benefit from the latter but is something my mother took for years and her sight was fine until she died at 96 y/o.

InvisiblyMe May 31, 2022 - 4:13 pm

My mum has the same – eyes watering, sometimes streaming like she’s crying when she goes outside, only to be told by the optometrists that it’s dryness causing the problem. I think the tear ducts are overcompensating and producing more fluid to moisturise the eye, but it’s strange, isn’t it? Refresh Digital, I don’t think that’s one I’ve seen in the UK but I hope it helps you. Systane is quite pricey which is why I don’t buy it as I didn’t notice enough difference for me between that and Blink. It would be good if they did free eye drop testers so we could try a few out to see what works best as they’re pricey products to be routinely buying. It’s great your mum’s vision was healthy into her 90s; I’ll have to take a look at some supplements with Lutein as I’d never even heard of Lutein before your comment so thank you for sharing this! xx

Thanks for this Caz. When I had surgical complications a few years back which made me very I’ll, I developed episcleritis which is an auto immune condition. They have even suggested scleritis which is sight threatening so I’m worried atm. I have to use steroids periodically. I use Hydro forte dry eye drops regularly as I feel they do help but interested in some of the products you suggest.

Reply
InvisiblyMe May 31, 2022 - 4:20 pm

Oh Lauraine, I’m sorry you’ve got to deal with that after being poorly. It’s a slap in the face to have surgery, get ill and be left with new health issues. Sounds much like what happened to me with ongoing illness. May I ask if the complications were related to an implant? Just wondering if that was causing the autoimmune side of things. I’m glad you have Hydro drops to moisturise your eyes a bit; it might be an idea to ask your eye specialist or an optician about whether a warm compress (either a warm wet flannel or eye mask like the black one in this post) would be okay for you to use given the inflammation with your eyes. I don’t know how they diagnose scleritis so I had to Google it; it just says “slit-lamp examination. Smears or rarely biopsies are necessary to confirm infectious scleritis. CT or ultrasonography may be needed for posterior scleritis.” It sounds like it’s a condition that could last 1-2 months, so I don’t know if that fits with what you’re experiencing or not. I’ll keep my fingers crossed they give you a better idea of what’s going on or suggest what’s safe for you to try to manage the condition(s). Sending my best wishes ???? xx

I suffer from dry eyes (I think because of medication) and try to use eye gel every day. I need to get into the habit of using an eye cleanser though because I the last time I was at the optician, she noticed I had blepharitis (again!) I really looked after them for the first couple of weeks, then started to forget. So your post is a good reminder to me. I like the sound of the brightening eye gel from Simple. Simple is a favourite brand of mine so I think I will be treating myself to that. Great post as always.

InvisiblyMe May 31, 2022 - 4:26 pm

Aw not again, I’m sorry about the blepharitis, Liz. Are you okay to use warm compresses for your eyes? I use the Eye Doctor one in the post but you could also use a clean flannel wet with warm water; it might help a little to loosen things up, and then use drops to moisturise your eyes afterwards. I hope the eye cleanser you’ve got can be helpful and that the blepharitis clears up soon. Eyes are amazing things, but problems with them can be really uncomfortable. xx

Great information Caz thank you. I have been, for the past month, suffering from blepharitis and have been prescribed antibiotic eye treatment to be used 3 times a day for 2 months. So difficult and eyes so puffy. Just a quick question, how do you heat up your gel mask, is it safe to microwave, and if so, for how long. Always great to learn more. Xxx

InvisiblyMe May 31, 2022 - 4:41 pm

I’m glad you like the post, Helen, thank you ???? I’m sorry you’ve had blepharitis to contend with – I’ve not had it personally but my mum has and it seems mighty uncomfortable. I hope the antibiotic treatment helps to clear it up as quickly as possible. The eye masks are safe to go in the microwave, but I would add some caution on the plastic Therapearl one given my experience with this developing small holes in the plastic (only because the sealing and plastic they use is not thick enough for routine use, in my opinion). The Eye Doctor’s black mask I put in the post is personally what I’d recommend as it’s much more comfortable, feels very safe in the microwave, is antibacterial and covers more of the eye area.

The Eye Doctor suggest 15-25 seconds in the microwave but mine goes in from frozen in the freezer, so I pop it in for 15 seconds, then turn it over/squish it a bit to move the heat throughout it, and put it back for 10 secs, check and add another 5 is needed etc as you don’t want it too hot or not warm enough. I think it’s brilliant and do feel safer with that one in the microwave. You could alternatively try a small face flannel to save money if you only want to use it temporarily with your blepharitis; ensure it’s clean first as you don’t want to add more bacteria to the eye, soak with moderately warm water, squeeze water out and relax for a bit with it on your eyes (not to sound like I’m telling you the obvious here, just explaining what I mean). If the doc says it’s okay to use warm therapy on your eyes, I think the general idea is to use two/three times a day when the symptoms are flaring. I hope you get some relief and that the blepharitis clears up soon lovely. ???? xx

I just found out a few months ago that I have dry eyes. I’ve likely had them for years and an eye dr confirmed it. I use drops called Systane 4 times a day and still remember the first time I used them. I literally said “sweet relief!” Thanks for sharing about such an uncomfortable condition and providing options.

I’m glad you’ve at least got confirmation; any ideas of the cause? Oh yes, the first time you use eye drops is amazing (albeit terrifying for me as I hated the idea of putting anything into my eye so it ended up being very messy) 😆 Systane is quite highly thought of when it comes to drops so while they’re pricey, at least they should work well. I hope they continue to give you good relief, Christy xx

These are great ideas, Caz! Thank You! One of my sisters has dry eyes. She’s had triple surgery on both eyes over the past year and is still in recovery. I take her for another follow up with the surgeon in August….hopefully it’s the last! She’s on quite the routine but it never occurred to me to get her an eye mask! I think she would absolutely love that and we are well beyond the point in her healing where it would be okay. Can’t believe I didn’t think of that before. This post is going to help a lot of people, I’m sure!!! Thanks again! Huge hugs and Cheers!!! ????❤️????

A great list. I wouldn’t have thought of using some of those products for my eyes. I wear hard contact lenses but I suppose with any lenses, dry eyes are very common and mine are extra irritable at the moment. Thanks for putting it all together. I’m going to look into the Supereyes brand which is 15ml.

I had a dry eye diagnosis for years , but nothing helped. I tried prescription and OTC drops and even had the “drain tear ducts” in my eyes plugged to keep moisture near my eyes. Turns out that my eyes are fine but I have Tourette syndrome which frequently feels like eye discomfort but it’s really in your brain. Wanted to add this comment in case someone else might be dealing with the same thing.

Ooh, these are great suggestions, Caz. I produce no tear so have to use drops at least twice a day. I use Hycosan (original) purely because an optician recommended them a few years ago after doing a litmus test on my eyes. Hence the discovery of no tears. No wonder my eyes felt like they were on fire most of the time! I like the idea of the eye wipes. I think I will look them up to supplement my routine. His from here. 💕xxx

Dry eyes are freaking miserable, aren’t they? And they often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, with the person not actually realizing how much they’re suffering. I never really had dry eyes until I began using the computer more often for work. Exactly like you mentioned in the non-auto-immune reasons for having this condition.

I love your idea of using the mask for migraines too! I can see how that would feel amazing, and I’m glad the newest version feels even better. Maybe they will find a way to make the cooling better, even with the silkier material? I was completely unfamiliar with that brand but they sound interesting!

I have heard of the Simple eye brightening gel but never would have thought to use it in this way. Personally, I have a bad habit of putting my evening moisturizers all over my face, including my eyelashes and eyelids. It often causes a burning redness in the corner of my eye and soreness. You’d think I’d learn my lesson and stop doing that, right? LOL. Sounds like this would actually be something to relieve dryness without causing irritation. Thanks for sharing it. 😊

I’ve missed reading your posts and interacting with you, friend. I pray you and your family are well. I think of you often. ❤️
