Grit & Dust 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
  • Smoke and hazy 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 Actimist 2in1 Eye Spray repairs the eye's natural protective moisture barrier to reduce moisture loss.

Optrex Eye Wash with Eye Bath washes, soothes and cleanses tired and uncomfortable eyes.

If you prefer drops to a wash then try using Optrex Refreshing Eye Drops for tired eyes to help soothe and revitalise tired, uncomfortable eyes.

Top Tip:

Always wear safety glasses when doing DIY or gardening to protect eyes from injury or dust particles. If you feel like there is a foreign body in your eye, see your optometrist or doctor.
