Description (by Rebecca)
So many choices these days. There's an awful lot of products to sort through. Be sure to use our ingredient guide - it also compares the packaging types and sizes. At the end of the day, though, it's really about trial and error to find the one that agrees with your skin, agrees with your eyes, helps, and isn't irritating - and also suits your needs/wants when it comes to packaging types.
In the past I used foams quite a bit (the Eye Eco ones being particular favorites. But that was when I was using it in the shower, which I don't do anymore because water is just too irritating to my eyes. And I've just never really liked using foams over a sink - even the leave-in ones. So I came to this product a little biased. Sure enough, I like the wipe version more than the foam. For some reason the Blephadex foam irritates my eyes. We don't know the tea tree oil concentration, so that might be the issue for me. Yet it's a very popular product. Just sharing my personal experience. I imagine there are many people for whom the stronger concentration is a plus.
Description (from the manufacturer's literature)
Dry eye is a common condition millions of people suffer from – when your tears are unable to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. Blinking is a crucial part of keeping the right amount of moisture in the eye surface. With each blink of the eyelids, tears spread over the surface of the eye, known as the cornea. When we sleep, we don’t blink, causing us to experience dry eyes upon waking up in the morning..
