Research shows that a large percentage of us suffer from dry eyes, often due to staring at computer screens for hours on end, a situation made worse by lockdown.
Over half (55%) of adults questioned in a Rohto survey look at a screen for between 5 and 7 hours a day, with 36% saying they do this for 8 to 12 hours every day. Only 6 in 100 took the recommended amount of screen breaks.
Dry eye can lead to long term damage
Optometrist Francesca Marchetti says ,"Dry eye is caused by lack of lubrication, either due to staring at a screen for hours without a break and a lack of blinking or because the tear glands are not working effectively. It's vital to tackle this problem early with regular use of dry eye relief drops which address as many aspects of the condition as possible. Rohto has launched the latest science backed innovation to treat dry eye - new Rohto Dry Aid. "
New Rohto Dry Aid Treats 8 Symptoms of Dry Eye
Providing relief for up to 12 hours, Rohto is non blurry and helps tackle: dryness - soreness - itching - irritation - grittiness - stinging - burning - tired eyes
In a trial of males and females aged between 20 and 68 including contact lens wearers, 94% of those who tested Rohto Dry Aid reported it soothed and hydrated their eyes, while 93% said they would be likely to recommend the product to others.
Francesca Marchetti concluded, "Dry eye is now a major issue thanks to our growing screen use but most of us have no idea we suffer from it. As well as people checking with an optician, taking regular screen breaks and drinking plenty of fluids, a key step to more comfortable eyes is the regular use of clinically-proven dry eye relief drops. New Rohto Dry Aid offers the latest in eye health innovation and technology, providing up to 12 hours relief."
