tranquileyes Your Dry Eyes

Allergies, lack of sleep, contact lens wear, extended computer use and certain eye conditions can all lead to dry, irritated eyes.

There are plenty of drops on the market that will chemically remove the redness and dryness, but these simply mask symptoms. Tranquileyes Eye Hydrating Therapy is a natural way to bring immediate and lasting relief to dry, irritated eyes. Unlike other dry eye treatments, tranquileyes is a soft, flexible goggle designed to form a moist, humid environment around the eye that prevents the evaporation of natural tears, while also moisturizing the delicate skin around the eyes. This increased humidity around the eye prevents the evaporation of natural and artificial tears, improves the overall eye health by thickening the lipid layer, and may restore the eyes' natural defense against future tear evaporation.

The therapeutic benefit of tranquileyes extends well beyond the period of use. According to their website, in as little as 20 minutes of wearing tranquileyes, you can relieve the symptoms of dry eyes. You can use tranquileyes simply with warm or cold water, while relaxing, during sleep, on plane flights or whenever you need immediate long-lasting relief from dry eyes. tranquileyes can also be used to enhance existing dry eye treatments such as artificial tears or ointments.

Each pair of tranquileyes includes two eye covers with a connecting nose bridge. Each eye cover is surrounded with a foam eye cushion, and contains a removable foam moisture pad. tranquileyes are secured to the face with a comfortable and adjustable fabric head wrap.

Warm water for dry eyes; cold water to reduce puffiness. Either way, feel like you're at the spa.

Available in a variety of tranquil colors, and with more accessories than you can shake a stick at, these may be just what the doctor ordered.
