Thank you Rohto Dry-Aid for sponsoring this post.
I’ve been an avid reader ever since I was a child. Now that I’m all grown up, I honestly don’t have as much time to really dive into books but oh, when I do, it’s amazing. I love to be taken on an adventure and fall in love with characters that begin to feel like friends. During the summer months, I find more time to break away from work and parenting and rediscover my passion of reading. In fact, I currently have a stack of books that are just waiting for me to open their pages and begin the adventures. So what is stopping me from doing that? As any avid reader knows, reading can put a strain on your eyes. Over the years, I’ve looked at computers quite a bit for my work and honestly, it seems like the older I get, the more I struggle with dry, irritated eyes when trying to read. In the past, I’ve tried switching to eReaders and reading indoors to try to combat my dry eye so that I can read longer. But his year, I’m getting smart and giving something new a try! With help from Rohto Dry-Aid, my goal this summer is to read more and worry about dryness, irritation, grittiness, burning and stinging less. If you’re in the same boat as me, read on for this book lover’s guide to eliminating dry eyes and check out my simple tips.
Before I start sharing tips for dealing with dry, irritated eyes, let’s talk a little more about the symptoms you may be experiencing if you suffer from dry eye pain. For me, my eyes will begin itching and burning. I’ll want to rub them but know I shouldn’t. Then they’ll start to sting and dry out. It’s a pretty uncomfortable feeling that leaves me wanting to do anything besides read. Since I’ve learned that these are classic symptoms of dry eye disease, I’m doing all I can to take care of the problem. Here’s what I’ve been trying.
According to Optometrist Dr. Susan Resnick, putting a warm compress on your eyelids for a few minutes twice a day can help with pain and discomfort from dry eye. This simple trick helps improve the quality of your tears by releasing oil in your eyelids’ grands. It’s an easy-to-do daily task that’s really quite simple because more oil equals less dry eye! A total win right?
The air in my home and especially my office tend to get pretty dry which does nothing to help with my dry eyes. Since I’m in my office for most of the work day and want my eyes to be up for reading in the evenings on my porch, I’ve added a humidifier near my desk. The warm, moist air seems to be helping my eyes not dry out as fast which is a big win.
Perhaps the thing I’m most excited about in my battle against dry eyes is easy to use Rohto Dry-Aid. I recently discovered these over-the-counter eye drops that bring fast, long-lasting relief for dry, irritated eyes that are due to the overuse of electronics, environmental conditions like cold or windy weather, use of contact lenses, laser eye surgery and hormonal changes. They are clinically shown to improve key symptoms of dry eye disease like the ones I suffer from without making my vision blurry.
I keep one bottle of Rohto Dry-Aid in my office to help during the day while I’m doing what I have to do and one bottle with my books to ensure that at the end of my work day, I’m still able to do what I want to do.
That way, when I start having pain and discomfort caused by dry eye, I can simple reach for my Rohto Dry-Aid and know that I’ll get instant relief that lasts.
From the first drop that I’m able to squeeze in my eye using the Rohto Dry-Aid unique dropper tip, I am rewarded with the benefits of a unique formula that cools and soothes burning, stinging eyes instantly. Yes, I said instantly and that matters because when you’ve got pain and discomfort from dry eyes, all you want is relief fast! But equally important to that instant relief is the fact that Rohto Dry-Aid offers consistent and continuous dry eye relief, comfort and protection throughout the day so that one application is all it takes to get the relief that I need in order to have eyes that are ready for the adventures my books want to take me on.
I’ll be implementing all of my above tips over the next month in order to read more and enjoy every minute of my me time. Then I’ll be back to share my results with you and let you know how Rohto Dry-Aid is helping me beat dry eye pain and discomfort and get back to doing the things I really love, like reading. Until then, I encourage you to check out this information on eye drops and what you need to know before you make your next purchase.
