I've been wearing eyeglasses for more than half of my life. I wasn't conscious that I read in the dark or watch too near the television when I was growing up, thus I have to pay the price now by wearing contact lenses or my 2.25 eyeglasses anytime, anywhere!
Itchy eyes after a long day of wearing contact lenses, leaving my eyeglasses at home during an overnight, or having to bring a huge bottle of contacts solution when traveling... I now realized the importance of eye health. Other than these hassles, isn't our sense of sight a gift to appreciate beauty?
I just cannot imagine not being able to see the views during my travels, watch my K-Dramas with subtitles, or not being able to appreciate everyday nice things that we spot while strolling around the mall.
"Like other parts of your body, you should take care of your eyes. If you don't take proper eye care, it can result to many eye diseases." - Earl Jayona, Marketing Manager for Eye Mo, LF Asia Philippines, Inc. Healthcare Division.
Now according to Eye Mo, a leading eye drop brand we grew up with, these are the top 5 signs of eye irritation (or Eyeritation):
👀 Red Eyes - caused by allergy, dirt, pollution, smoke (cigarette, vehicles, etc), usually experienced by commuters.
👀 Watery Eyes - may be a sign of underlying health condition, irritation and inflammation.
👀 Sore Eyes - usually caused by staring into a computer screen or a book for too long.
👀 Itchy Eyes - Usually caused by allergies, or constant exposure to mold and dust. Rubbing eyes, although addicting, won't help (huhu). 🙈
👀 Dry Eyes - common for people (like you and me) who have high exposure to gadgets, TVs, laptops, and those working in airconditioned rooms. Lack or tears or moisture in eyes is also common as we age.
What's the difference between the red and blue Eye Mo (both at Php 95)? Learned about this during earlier's media campaign launch at the Cafe Naya in Taguig.
The Eye Mo Moisturizing Formula (blue) lubricates and soothes the eyes, easing it from dryness. It's what I will use everyday, after wearing my contacts for too long and commuting to my errands. While the Eye Mo Red Eyes (red) is a quick relief for eye redness and minor discomforts caused by irritants. It's best to have both of them at home, just in case.
Now that's it for your Eye Health 101... Back to watching my K-Drama! (Keeping my Eye Mo near me in case of sleepless night or excessive eye rubbing 😂)
