We rely on our eyes all day, every day. From the moment they let in the first rays of sunshine to that last light before we drift off to sleep, they work hard to help us see our world. When was the last time you took care of your eyes? Why not direct a little self-care towards your eyes and give them the TLC they deserve? With Eyeleve’s soothing moist heat compress for contact lens wearers, every day can be a spa day for your eyes.

Ways Your Eyes Might Be Telling You They Need A Break

It is human nature to ignore our bodies until there is a problem. We only pay attention once we are in pain or can’t do what we need to. Are you ignoring what your eyes are trying to tell you? They may already be sending you an SOS with the following symptoms of contact lens discomfort, dry eye irritation,  or digital eye strain:

  • Blurry vision
  • Gritty, dry feeling
  • Burning, stinging
  • Increased tearing
  • Contact lens discomfort
  • Redness
  • Eyestrain or pain

Ease Dry Eye Disease With Soothing Spa Treatments

Dry eye disease is an increasingly common condition that occurs when your eyes can’t produce enough tears or produce poor-quality tears. Age, gender, contact lenses, some health conditions, and particular medications can increase your risk for dry eye disease. If you experience symptoms, you may already have dry eye disease and not know it. You can treat the symptoms and prevent further development of dry eye disease by regularly using moist heat compresses like Eyeleve’s Contact Lens compress. This can help preserve your tears and tear film. dry, painful, or irritated eyes are an indication that your tear film may be unstable and that it is time to start pampering them

The Toll of Tech on Our Eyes

Your habit of spending long hours in front of screens and multi-tasking on multiple devices makes your eyes cry out for some pampering. It is harder for eyes to read on a digital screen than it is from the pages of a book. Digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome are the names eye doctors give to the unpleasant symptoms many people experience in today’s screen-dominated world. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, you also blink less frequently when staring at a screen, contributing to contact-lens-related dry eye as well. So your eyes may appreciate a screen-time diet and some R&R.

How to Pamper Your Eyes

So now that you better understand the daily demands you place on your eyes, don’t you think they’ve earned a break? Eyeleve helps you give your eyes some spa-type pampering.

  • Relax with a soothing Eyeleve Contact Lens Compress.
    Eyeleve’s moist heat compress makes it easier for you to add a little relaxation to your daily self-care routine. It takes just 20 seconds in the microwave, to warm up the compress’s medibeads to the correct therapeutic temperature needed to activate your eyes’ own natural lubrication system. Daily use of the Eyeleve compress for just eight to ten minutes is clinically proven to help the tiny glands in your eyelids work better. The oil released by the glands helps nourish your tired eyes and improve the quality of the refreshing tears needed to avoid symptoms of dry eye disease or computer vision syndrome.
  • Get a better night’s sleep.
    Heat in and of itself is relaxing. Routine is also relaxing. Combine the two into a nightly pre-sleep habit of wearing an eye mask, and you have a better shot at more restful sleep. People with insomnia or trouble falling asleep are encouraged to practice regular, soothing bedtime routines to help signal their bodies (and brains) that it is time to sleep. In much the same way that our computers need time to “power down,” so too do our bodies and brains. The Eyeleve Contact Lens Compress’s ergonomically designed eye pods block out daylight. In the darkness, it is easier for your eyes and brain to shut out the crazy world. They can take a much-needed break. In this calm, relaxed Zen-like state, you are better able to fall asleep and stay asleep. By improving your sleep quality, you can help your eyes recharge and prepare for the next day ahead.
  • Indulge in regular stress breaks for your eyes.
    Your eyes need regular stress breaks, just like you do. Set a reminder on your phone or computer to follow the 20-20-20 rule of looking away from your screen for at least 20 seconds, every twenty minutes, at an object at least 20 feet away while viewing. Being mindful of frequently blinking throughout your day is another way to pamper your eyes by giving your tear film a chance to nourish the surface of your eyes.

Care For Your Eyes in Stressful Times

Our world and our lives are visual. Devoting a few minutes a day of pampering for your eyes is a wise investment in your overall well-being. The dividends of spa time for your eyes extend beyond being able to wear your contact lenses comfortably for longer or increasing your productive time at work. There is no better time than today’s stressful, digital times to start pampering your eyes with Eyeleve’s clean moist heat compress.
