Having dry, irritated eyes means that you might have insufficient tear production, poor tear quality, itching, burning and redness of the eyes, and other painful and irritating symptoms. Causes vary and can include overuse of the television and other electronics such as cellphones, computers, and tablets, ill-fitting contact lenses, diseases of the glands of the eyelids, and several common disorders which prevent the eyelids from fully closing during sleep.
For those currently suffering from dry, irritated eyes, a moisturizing sleep mask or a set of sleep goggles could help support healthy eyes and mitigate some of the issues you're facing. Below are a few of the symptoms you may experience with dry, irritated eyes, so you can know if you may benefit from a pair of moisture chamber goggles or glasses:
- Red eyes
- Irritation and burning
- Eye fatigue or tired eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurred or fluctuating vision
- Difficulty seeing to drive at night
- Pain or aching feeling in the eyes
- Fluctuations between watery eyes and dryness
- Intolerance to contact lenses
- Sensation that something is in the eyes
Before we get into the Goggles, here's a rundown of my nightly routine for irritated eyes:
1. Remove all makeup thoroughly and wash face with the Heyedrate Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash. This product contains 19 plant botanicals and extracts designed to support healthy skin.
2. Use the MediViz Warm Compress Mask with Removable Cover to heat up your meibomian glands and allow those oils to flow freely.
3. Follow this with the Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser. Simply spray it onto a cotton ball or round, rub over your closed eyelids and let it dry. You can use your favorite moisturizer of choice after that, and I'm a huge fan of the Heyedrate Eye Cream and Face Moisturizer because you can use it all over your face, eyelids, and neck without worry.
