How to Apply ActiMist Correctly
Optrex Actimist Eye Spray* is a standout product from the Optrex range. It has been formulated to help stabilise the lipid layer of the tear film on the surface of the eye to help prevent moisture loss, and also to relieve symptoms of dryness or tiredness.*
Normally, we’re used to eye drops to help with dry eyes, so what’s the difference and how is Actimist applied?
What’s it for?
If you experience dry eyes, the cause could be down to the disruption of the tear film lipid layer. If this layer is damaged, moisture from the aqueous layer below it can escape.
To help repair or replenish the lipid layer, liposomes can to be introduced which can help stabilise and lock in the natural moisture.
What’s the Benefit?
Unlike eye drops, Actimist is sprayed onto closed eyes. This has two benefits:
The first is that you don’t have to lean backwards during application, which some might not be able to do due to age, or back or neck problems.
The second is that you don’t have to look directly at the bottle, and wait for a drop to fall onto your eye, since you apply with closed eyes. This helps take away some discomfort.
Being a spray, Optrex Actimist also covers the wider area of your eye, so there’s less chance of missing the intended area and having to apply again.
Optrex Actimist, for tired and uncomfortable eyes, also contains Pro-Vitamin B5, and can help to moisturise the eyelids, as well as areas around the eyes. What's more, it won't smudge make-up and is suitable to use with contact lenses.
How to Apply
To use Actimist, remove the cap and hold the opened bottle 10cm from your closed eye with the nozzle aiming towards you.
Spray once or twice over each eye, and let the mist come to rest on your eyelids. Once the air has cleared, gently open your eyes, and blink a few times.
This will allow the spray that has collected on your eyelids to reach the surface of the eye, where it will mix with the lipid layer helping to stabilise it. You may even feel a little refreshed already!
Optrex Actimist helps your eyes feel fresher quickly, soothing dry eyes.* Remember, the symptoms experienced could be induced by your environment: air conditioner blowing in your face, prolonged screen exposure, or from wearing contact lenses.
Try to reduce your exposure to such conditions if you can but should you experience symptoms, use Optrex ActiMist for long lasting relief of up to 4 hours.
We recommend using Actimist, which could soothe feelings of tiredness in your eye, as well as dryness.
* Dry & irritated eyes due to disturbed lipid layer of the tear film causes approx. 80% of dry eye cases
