Comments about Alcon Systane Balance Restorative Formula Eye Drops:

Have you ever broken a blood vessel in your eye?  This is one thing I have never experienced, but it happened to me over a week ago.  I woke up one morning and my right eye was all bloodshot!  It was very scary, and I made an appointment with an eye doctor to be sure that my eyes were okay.

While at the doctors office, they did a vision test, they tested the pressure of my eyes, and they dilated my eyes to get a better look at them.  The opthamoloist assured me that they were fine, I simply broke a blood vessel, which is like getting a bruise anywhere else on the body.  The only problem with the eyes is that there is no place for the blood to go, so the entire eyeball can become red, like mine did.

He gave me several eye drops, one being a bottle of Systane Balance Lubricant Eye Drops, in the Restorative Formula.  He told me that while my eyes looked healthy, they were very dry, and he recommended I use these eye drops to help moisten my eyes during the daytime.

Systane Balance are made by Alcon, and these come in a purple box containing 1.5 ml.  The drops are sterile, and these are "Clinical Strength & Intensive Therapy".  The side of the box explains that these eye drops have the proven power to "Restore the natural tear's lipid layer to treat dryness and provide long lasting relief". 

These drops can be used to provide "temporary relief of burning and irritation due to dryness of the eye".  You need to be careful not to touch the tip of the bottle to your eyes, or you risk contaminating them.  Using these is easy.  Shake the bottle, put one to two drops in each eye as needed.

These have really helped relieve itching I have experienced in the warmer climate I am in (with air conditioning on).  I have a tip that really makes the experience of putting drops in the eye a much more pleasant one.  I tip my head back, place a drop or two into the corner of my eye, then turn my head slightly so the drops will gently fall into the eye area.  This way I am not placing a cold drop of liquid directly onto my eyeball, and it is a much nicer way to put in eye drops.
