  • The packaging says that the product is for moderate-severe dry eye which seems like it should be pretty powerful stuff, and I don't think I have severely dry eyes so I'm not sure if the product would hold up in extremely dry conditions
  • Overall I think I'd use these in the future, but I might try something different because the results didn't exactly blow me away

      The last time I made a trip to the optometrist I got a sample for AMO’s new Blink gel tears for my dry eye. She recommended that I use the drops in each eye two times a day. The “gel tears” come in a bottle and are actually a thick liquid substance. It

      is clear, unlike some dry eye drops that I have used and didn’t feel too thick on my eyes, although it did blur my vision for about 5 minutes after instilling the drops but it was by no means incapacitating. The gel did keep my eyes nice and moisturized for about 8 hours,

      • so I ended up using these drops three times a day instead of twice. The packaging says that the product is for “moderate-severe dry eye” which seems like it should be pretty powerful stuff, and I don’t think I have severely dry eyes so I’m not sure if the product would hold
        up in extremely dry conditions. I did like how the eye drops felt right when you put it on though, it was very refreshing and felt like chap-stick for my eyes!

        Overall I think I’d use these in the future, but I might try something different because the results didn’t exactly blow me away.

    Can you use the Blink Gel with your contact lens in?

    Jennifer Davis says :

    Not unless you want blurry vision for awhile. The gel will coat the contact lenses and make it blurry and difficult to see. I have tried to use it as a quick fix, but it did not work. Even under normal circumstances (i.e. using it without contacts in) you will experience blurry vision for up to 15 minutes. this is not an eye drop that works well with contacts.
