Eye Irritations

There are many different eye irritations, which can be self treated. Ask our pharmacist to choose the right product for you.

  • Bathe the eye regularly with warm water.
  • Use separate treatment bottles for each eye if both eyes are infected.
  • Do not share your drops with other people.
  • Always check the expiry date of the eye treatment.
  • If you have sudden pain or blurred vision ask to see your pharmacist.
  • If your eye problem does not go away in three days, ask our pharmacist for advice.
