Overtired eyes is quite a norm for me since I stared at a laptop or ipad for more than 6 hours day. In this digitally-inclined era, there are tons of people like me who spend long hours in front of computers, laptops, TVs and mobile devices which eventually lead to strained and dry-eyes. There’s also the factor of eye irritation from environmental irritants such as smoke, haze and dust. One of the best way to your eyes a break is probably by using eye drops and today I’m sharing my two cents on Rohto® eye drops which claims to effectively retain moisture as well as to provide soothing relief for dry, irritated eyes.
Introduced by Rohto®, the number-one global eye care brand¹, Rohto® Cool Eye Drops comes with a unique cooling formula that provides an instant cooling sensation which will fades and be replaced by a totally refreshing feeling for your eyes. The cooling formula also aids in producing more natural tears that help to soothe your eyes and reduce eye fatigue by increasing perceived image clarity.
Rohto® Cool Eye Drops are carefully formulated by eye care specialists in full compliance with FDA’s over-the counter Ophthalmic Drug Products Monograph, manufactured under Goods Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and ISO 13485 standard guidelines to ensure the product is safe and effective for minor eye irritations or dryness.
Each ingredient is filtered and sterilized, from the bottle to the cap and nozzle through gamma sterilization or electron beam sterilization. Rohto® Cool Eye Drops is formulated to be contact lens-friendly and has a cooling level of 5 out of 8. The packaging is a striking blue colour with transparent liquid hold inside an ‘oval’shape bottle that comes with a non-squirting, single-drop dispenser.
My Verdict: The pointy nozzle makes it easier for a precise droplet application into my eyes. On the first drop, you’ll be hit by a ‘super cooling’ effect as the menthol hits your eye zone. Hence, I couldn’t open my eyes and feel quite startled by the tingling sensation (felt like my eyes was being washed). However, the sensation changes when I opened my eyes, I felt such a relief on my tired eyes. In fact my eyes clarity was much better as well. Rohto® Cool Eye Drops does assist in producing natural tears which helps to moisturise my eyes even better. It does get some time to get used to the ‘cooling menthol’ effect but once you used it, you’ll love it!
Do note that once the bottle is open it must be used within a month. If not, please discard it as the ingredient might have changed and will cause eye irritation.
There are other variants available as well such as Rohto® Aqua for tired eye relief that’s gentle and moisturising at the same time and Rohto® Dry Aid for advanced dry eye relief that helps to restore moisture.
Rohto® Cool Eye Drop is priced at RM16.90 (inclusive of GST) per bottle and is available in leading pharmacies and hypermarkets nationwide. If you would like more information, please visit www.rohtoeyedrops.com.my.
