The optometrist may recommend some of these products to keep your eyes comfortable and healthy.
Lubricating Eyedrops and Gels
Recommended for people with stingy, gritty dry eyes. Lubricating eyedrops and gels improve eye comfort by enhancing the tear film layer. Different products have different consistencies so the optometrist will recommend the correct type for you, depending on how moderate or severe your dry eye is. Preservative-free eyedrops are available for those with more sensitive eyes.
Eyelash/eyelid cleaning products
Recommended for people with blepharitis, a common inflammation of the eyelid margin. Cleaning of the eyelid margins removes irritating debris and treats inflammation. The optometrist will check for blepharitis at your eye examination and discuss treatment options if required.
Optimel Antibacterial honey eyedrops
Optimel Antibacterial Manuka Eye Drops assist the surface health of the eye by creating a microenvironment that supports healing and prevents further damage. The antibacterial Manuka honey is preservative free and assists for dry eye, blepharitis and other eye surface diseases.
