Common Eye Conditions
Grit & Dust etc in the eye
What is it?
Getting dust, smoke, a loose eyelash or something else in your eye can be uncomfortable and even distressing, especially for children.
What are the main causes?
- Windy weather blowing grit, dust, etc
- Smoky atmospheres
- Manual work or DIY (e.g. plaster particles)
- Wearing heavy eye make-up
What are the symptoms?
Your eye will probably water, look red, and you'll probably be blinking a lot because it feels gritty and scratchy.
What can I do about it?
Optrex Multi Action Eye Wash provides sensitive, moisture replenishing relief by washing, soothing and cleansing irritated eyes.
If you prefer drops to a wash then try using Optrex Refreshing Eye Drops to irrigate the eye and remove the trapped particles, as well as to soothe the irritation.
Always wear safety glasses when doing DIY or gardening to protect eyes from injury or dust particles.
