Optrex ActiMist | For Dry Eyes


A few months back I visited my local opticians for my annual eye test and as I’m pretty much blind as a bat anyway (I’m like -6.5 if you wear glasses/contact lenses), I didn’t expect there to be any change in my eyes.

Optrex MistTurns out though that my eyes were slightly drier than normal and this was because I’ve been wearing my contact lenses for too long during the day. The optician even went on to tell me that my eyeballs could start to form THEIR OWN BLOOD VESSELS which could result in serious damage to the eyes…

Well I mean thanks mate, what a way to scare a girl. Optrex is a brand that I’ve certainly come across before in particular with the eye drops but I’ve never had to use them and I’ve always thought that I wouldn’t be able to use anything other than my own contact lens solution in my eye.

Optrex MistThe ActiMist 2-in-1 Eye Spray works by spraying it over the eye when closed. The solution then absorbs into the eyelid and onto the eyes to provide almost instant relief from dry eyes. We used this so much during our trip away in Morocco because of wearing our contact lenses all day.

The spray normally costs £15.99 but is currently reduced to £12.99 on Superdrug. Is it worth the money? Yes. It has certainly provided instant relief to my eyes and Sam’s found the same results as he tends to suffer with dry eyes a lot more than me.

Optrex MistMy only issue with this though is the size. Considering we’ve only been using it for a little over a week, we’ve nearly ran out. This is something both me and Sam would want to use on the regular, so I was a little disappointed to see we’d gotten through nearly the whole bottle.

Aside from the size though, this eye spray does what it says on the tin. There’s a few other sprays that are for other symptoms relating to the eyes such as watery or tired eyes. They also have brightening eye drops which I would be interested in trying.

Make sure to check out the range. Have you tried Optrex before? Let me know in the comments below.
