General Product Description:
Blink eye drops are a liquid solution designed to soothe the eyes and stop feelings of eye irritation, dryness, and fatigue.
I have used Blink eye drops for overnight bike rides, and this has meant the difference between blurry eyesight and no eyesight. The eye drops are placed into my eyes about 30 minutes before a race, and are then used when needed.
In the Kapiti area this product is sold at Grylls Keleher and Matthews optometrists. (Ihakara Street, Paraparaumu).
Later on longer rides I find my eyes get a dull ache. I also experience a foggy vision. The eye drops immediately stop any irritation.
I experience no tired feeling in my eyes, which has been a side effect of some of the other eye drops that have left me feeling sleepy after using the eye drops. (Fortunately never on a bike!!).
Areas to Note:
Be aware that the bottle has a short shelf life. You’ll have to throw the bottle out 45 days after opening it. While this may sound like a long time, keep in mind that you’ll only be using the eye drops when you do longer (night) rides, or find yourself working in dry / dusty conditions.
For me, it means that a bottle will do me for either one or two night rides. Then it gets thrown out.
Despite the 45 day expiry, the product is worth the cost. I would not use any other eye drops for my cycling.
