Summer, dry eyes, and new glasses

This post is sponsored by Alcon and SheKnows Media.

Recently, my eyes had been bothering me to the point where I couldn’t see a thing. Since I often use my computer to keep up with both my family and friends, I had to take care of the problem immediately. After scheduling an eye exam appointment, I headed to my trusty vision center to see my favorite optometrist. I walked away with a new eyeglass prescription and I think my new glasses are the best, mainly because I can see without having to use readers.

More importantly, I also walked away having learned something unexpected: that I have dry eyes. My optometrist explained that several different things could’ve brought on this condition and that my eyes weren’t able to lubricate themselves. Before, I’d thought I was having allergy issues because of the way my eyes felt. I started googling dry eyes when I got home and found out that I wasn’t alone. 30 million people living in the US experience the same issue. To be honest, I didn’t know what dry eyes were or realized that this condition, not seasonal allergies, was what was affecting my everyday life.

That is when I decided I needed SYSTANE® Complete. I researched everything about dry eyes and this product kept jumping out at me, mainly because it’s the #1 doctor recommended brand of eye drops and because it’s now possible to try SYSTANE® Complete in an eye doctor’s office. I like to try before I buy when that option is available. Plus, I can buy it over the counter, so I don’t have to go see my vision center every time I need a new bottle. Finally, get this: SYSTANE® Complete is the most advanced solution in the SYSTANE® family of eye drops.

  1. I meant a lot less $$$… in my post below.

  2. The generic versions of Systane that Walgreens and CVS sell work just as well for a let $$$. Just saying. I’ve been suffering with dry eyes for years now and Systane helps but not long term and you just have to keep buying more. Doc have me an RX to try… hopefully it will provide some relief.

  3. Carole-Lynn de Groat

    This year my eyes have radically increased in dryness. I have to use eye drops twice a day now, or else my eyes actually hurt. I use a generic brand, but my eye doctor recommends Systane, which I have in my shopping list. I’m very interested in Systane complete!

  4. I’ve never had dry eyes, thank goodness, but I know my aunt does. It gives her problems so I will suggest this to her.

  5. Babushka had been diagnosed with dry eyes years ago. Apparently normal eyes lubricate every 5 seconds, unfortunately BB’s eyes take twice as long, and now with looking at the computer screen constantly it’s gotten worse. Systane is a well known brand; will be looking into this product. Gracias for the info and the giveaway, wouldn’t mind winning some! BB2U

  6. I think it’s so important to go see the eye doctor each year too. I made the mistake of not going for years, and when I finally went, it turned out I needed glasses. Now my whole family makes sure to go every year.

  7. I don’t get dry eyes too much thankfully, my eyes hurt when they’re dry. Glad you found something that works for you.
