With increased screen time, eye drops are near-necessities if you want to maintain good eye health and prevent dry eyes. However, many of us aren’t entirely sure on how to properly use or apply eye drops. Especially now with the new norm of wearing masks in Singapore, it’s best that we familiarise ourselves as much as possible with the best practices when it comes to the use of eye drops.
Here are some frequently asked questions about Japanese cooling eye drops answered:
1. What can Japanese cooling eye drops be used for?
OTC driblets such as Japanese cooling eye drops can be used to treat symptoms and provide comfort when experiencing:
- dry eye
- red eye
- allergic conjunctivitis
- loose foreign material in the eye
If you experience pink eye, styes, infections of the eyelids or objects lodged in the eye, make sure to visit a professional physician to get prescriptive antibiotics and appropriate medical supplies.
2. How many drops should I apply to each eye?
When using quality products such as Sato Pharmaceutical’s Japanese Eye Drops in Singapore, there is no real need to put more than one drop in each eye. While adding more than one will not be detrimental to eye health, it is entirely unnecessary and can also cause discomfort.
You should also wait between 5-10 minutes before applying a new drop if needed, as any time before that will entail you simply washing out the previous drib.
3. How do I practise good hygiene when using Japanese cooling eye drops?
Thoroughly wash your hands before touching your eye directly. Then, gently pull on your bottom eye lid. This should form a “well” for you to apply your eye drop into. Make sure to keep your dropper far enough so that there’s no direct contact between the nozzle and your eye.
Once you’ve applied your eye drop, plug the inside corners of your eye near your nose bridge, close your eyes, and tilt your head backwards. This will better facilitate the cornea’s absorption of the liquid.
Also, be sure to get eye drops that are of trusted quality; the last thing you want is to be putting something harmful into your eyes when trying to treat them. Sato’s best Japanese eye drops, the Dorama-Neo Eye Drop, is renowned for its robust formula and unparalleled quality, utilising artificial tear-type drops that work gently on the eye without irritating them.
4. Is it safe to use Japanese cooling eye drops without a prescription?
It’s completely safe to use eye drops without a prescription as long as you’re using it to for the aforementioned conditions in question #1 and they are high-quality Japanese cooling eye drops that will not end up doing more harm than good.
5. Do I need to shake Japanese eye drops for red eye before use?
Most Japanese cooling eye drops for red eye utilise suspension medications that require shaking prior to use. While not all Japanese eye drops in Singapore will need to be shaken before use, it does no harm to do so regardless, so it’s best to incorporate it into your eye drop application routine.
6. Can I use Japanese cooling eye drops when wearing contact lenses?
Using eye drops while wearing contact lenses can cause irritation, infection and allergic reactions. Make sure to remove your contact lenses before using your Japanese cooling eye drops for the best results.
