Many people find it uncomfortable travelling by plane as their eyes get very dry in the air-conditioning.
This effect is even worse if you happen to have an eye prosthesis.
We’ve had lots of great feedback about Ocu-Glide.
This is a silicon based eye drop which is totally inorganic. This means that it doesn’t have a useby date – or to put it simply, it doesn’t go off.
You only need a little drop of Ocu-Glide to stop the prosthesis from drying out. It doesn’t need to be reapplied for several hours.
This can make a big difference to your comfort level when travelling.
Sadly, you can’t use it in your real eye – you’ll have to get other eye drops for that.
Other useful tips include;
- Avoid alcohol.
- Drink lots of water.
- Wear the little sleep masks over your eyes.
Ocu-Glide isn’t widely available. You can buy it over the internet or from some Ocularists.
