These are NOT eye drops made just for hayfever, but with hayfever upon us, these are PERFECT for moistening the eyes when they get too dry and itchy. And at less than £1 a bottle, they are a steal

And you can use Flubit to bring the price down even further

Here is their description

Hypromellose eye drops are also known as;artificial tear;and are used in the eye to relieve dryness and irritation caused by a reduced flow of natural tears.HYPROMELLOSE is an eye lubricant. the drops are used to treat conditions where not enough tears are made to keep the eye lubricated and clean.the usual dose is 1 or 2 drops placed in each eye three times a day, however this may vary depending on the amount of lubrication needed.contains hypromellose 0.3%w/v

dry eyes is a serious condition
These are a NHS first line treatment for dry eyes ( third line being for more severe dry eye conditions ).
They show up as a recommended prescription drug because they have a Drug Tariff / MIMs price of £1.21 per 10mm.
Further research has just shown to me that they contain preservatives which can aggravate dry eyes more.
Just try them out and see!

This is from the customer questions & answers section

Question: Can I use them with contact lenses
Answer: The leaflet actually states: "If you wear soft contact lenses, remove them before applying Hypromellose Drops and do not replace for at least 15 minutes"
Got enough tears of my own without adding artificial ones

​thanks, not for me than

It's worth reading the review that states using eyedrops containing benzalkonium chloride can make your eyes worse. I don't know how much issue this is, so would like to hear others views?

Contains the preservative benzalkonium chloride. I think it is enough to … Contains the preservative benzalkonium chloride. I think it is enough to cite a review of the gathered knowledge of its effects: "The most frequently used preservative, benzalkonium chloride (BAK), has consistently demonstrated its toxic effects in laboratory, experimental, and clinical studies. As a quaternary ammonium, this compound has been shown to cause tear film instability, loss of goblet cells, conjunctival squamous metaplasia and apoptosis, disruption of the corneal epithelium barrier, and damage to deeper ocular tissues." (1)Upon asking other amazon costumers of the content of this product (its nowhere to be found on the web but listed on the package) I got a bunch of confused answers and in addition one that claimed it not containing any preservatives. I took a chance and ordered it due to the low price but am returning this product straight away.(1) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20302969

I'm not worried tbh - seen lots of people swear by these.

The preservative free versions cost more, so if it doesn't say it's preservative free in the product name it almost certainly isn't.

Always £1 Poundworld, Poundlandand other pound shops so what is the big deal? I would not buy many as they expire. Once opened they should be used only for one month otherwise they can do more harm than good due to bacterial contamination.

x3 in a pound shop = £3. This is x3 for £2.87. The purpose of this site is to SAVE money. And I used flubit to bring this down to £2.79 and I didn't have to leave my house

WOW! I definitely didn't know they were that expensive! I am even more glad I found this deal now lol
If your looking at this because you do suffer from bad dry eyes I can recommend artelac nighttime gel from Amazon. Because they are gel they last longer and I put a tiny bit in each eye in the morning and keeps my eyes good until late afternoon. Using them at night means I don't have the sensation of peeling my eyes open in the morning. Good find op but drops burn my eyes.
I have an eye condition which I have injections for and my hospital recommend Viscotears which is a gel ..not saying this product isn't ok but for those who can't handle drops give gel a go
not voting either way but I'd do some serious research before putting any product in my eyes. your eyesight is worth more than saving a few £££!

Thanks ordered great reviews.

Brilliant! Let me know how you get on, they are well worth the money in my opinion. Im sure lots of drops dry the eyes out even more, the more you put in, the more you need, but these definitely don't.

Thanks ordered great reviews.

My experience of dry eye treatments/drops from a different brand,
I don't recommend applying synthetic rubbish into your eyes unless you're absolutely desperate.
In my experience, it just makes you dependent on them.
And if I recall, the relief from dryness doesn't last that long and the smell
is weird.

Up to you, just giving my opinion and I don't trust this stuff
anymore.
Would rather take a shower with my eyes closed faced towards
the shower head. (Even though, chlorine would be present....oh well.)

I think my glasses did an ok job of keeping my eyes relatively moist (reducing wind? improving sharpness?)
coupled with the shower thing.
But I do wish there was a natural alternative to lubricating your eyes properly.
Problem is my glasses' anti glare layer is turning into a murky mess
which I'm not sure how to remove.

How our ancestors maintained clear vision is beyond me.
Perhaps it's smartphones and other close things that have done this to me.

​Home Bargains sells Optivive moisturising eye drops with 0.3% HPMC. A 10ml bottle comes in at 89p and the package says it is safe for use with contact lenses.
