A couple of weeks ago Bikehacks ran a post on active lifestyle products that can help make you more comfortable in the saddle or even in your office chair. Depending on your line of work/lifestyle, eye strain and irritation may be part of daily life...even if you don't wear glasses or contacts.
I have been using eyedrops on and off for a few years now and have tried quite a few different brands...most recently I've been using Naphcon A. For the past couple of weeks however, I have been using Rohto Ice eyedrops. The product claim is that they "...relieve redness while also soothing itch, irritation and burn with an intense cooling sensation". With relation to the cooling sensation, 'intense' may be a small understatement.
When I applied the drops for the first time, it was a little shocking to say the least because of the strong and immediate (intense) cooling sensation. It can be a very strong sensation at first, seemingly depending on the level of irritation in your eyes. The intensity quickly fades into a pleasant cool and moist feeling for your eyes. I've gotten used to them now and look forward to the extra kick that these drops provide when they are first applied.
In addition to providing personal eye comfort, Rohto Ice eyedrops can also be used on unsuspecting inebriated friends...to help snap them back to reality, and provide a few laughs at their reaction to the intense cooling sensation. For more information on Rohto's eyedrops, click here.
