Viscotears - Artificial Tears

Viscotears - Artificial Tears

Published: 2nd March, 2017 in: Conditions

Do you suffer from dry eyes? Dry eye symptoms occur when the tear ducts do not produce enough tears to keep the eye lubricated, and can include irritation and soreness. There are a number of products available on the market to soothe dry eyes and treat these symptoms, and Viscotears is a liquid gel that can provide rapid relief.

What are the symptoms?

If you have dry eye syndrome, you could suffer from any of the following symptoms:

  • Sore red eyes
  • A gritty feeling in the eyes that gets worse over the course of the day
  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Eyelids that stick together
  • Blurred vision

These are just a few of the symptoms that Viscotears products can treat. These symptoms are due to a problem with the tear production system, and they can occur for a number of reasons. You could be experiencing dry eye syndrome because of the climate you live in, or because you wear contact lenses. If you have had hormonal changes recently, this could also be the cause.

How can artificial tears help?

If dry eyes are causing you irritation, there are a number of products available on the market to provide you with relief. One of the most popular solutions is Viscotears liquid gel, which can be used to lubricate the eye to provide comfort. This treatment comes in the form of eye drops that are convenient to carry with you on the move. The gel, also known as artificial tears, provides a moisturising film to prevent dryness.

Eye care is of upmost importance, especially when you suffer from dry eye syndrome. As well as using Viscotears liquid gel, it is wise that you increase your eye care and keep your eyes clean while protecting them from smoky, windy and polluted environments.
