Peep Club Dry Eye Relief Spray is the safer solution to eye whitening drops

We’ve all been there, and sometimes a little extra help from eye brightening drops is necessary to hide the signs of tired eyes. But according to optometrist and co-founder of eye care brand, Peep Club, Nicola Alexander-Cross, these aren’t always the safest solution.

A quick fix is just that. Instead, try to find the root cause of dull, dry eyes

Using a whitening eye drop should be reserved for special occasions when you need that extra twinkle, but not more often than that and according to Nicola, the problem occurs when they’re used frequently. 

“Drops sold as “whitening” or “brightening” contain an ingredient that temporarily constricts the blood vessels in the white part of your eyes,” shares Nicola. “By causing the blood vessel to shrink your eyes appear less red. The main ingredient in these type of cosmetic drops is a type of decongestant (similar to the oral medication you would like if you had nasal congestion) – such as phenylephrine. These drops are only tackling the appearance of the redness – not the cause of the redness itself; which can be due to allergies, fatigue and in most cases, dry or tired eyes.”

Is there a safer solution to brighter eyes?

According to Nicola, the far better thing would be to tackle the source of the redness. “Speak to your local optometrist about the underlying cause of your lingering redness, they should be able to differentiate between if it is an allergy, dry eyes, screen fatigue or possibly something that actually needs more attention like a bacterial or viral infection. There are other eye drops that can cause your eyes to be whiter and brighter, by tackling the source of the redness itself, rather than just the appearance. A good preservative-free dry eye drop or spray (like our instant relief eye spray) will reduce the appearance of redness while also helping protect the eye itself and improving eye comfort – and all round win.”
