Gave me an unsightly skin rash around my eyes

published

I do not have sensitive skin and have never had a skin reaction to any product I have used - except this spray.
I developed an unsightly and uncomfortable rash around my eyes that made me look like a raccoon. I spent many $$$ on Drs and creams to try and heal the rash but all Optrex gave me was a gift card to the value of the product and fobbed me off!
Very poor product and customer service!
I guarantee the rash was the result of the product and warn people about the issue.
Take care!

Purchased in April 2019 at Woolworths for A$20.00.

Actimist 2 in 1 is very helpful for our dry eyes.

published

My husband & I both use this product & find it very helpful. It provides eye comfort for about 4 hours. It is especially good for dry dehumidified environments like planes & air conditioned areas. I use a closed fist on my cheek to stabilise the bottle when administering it (about 10cm) & I wait about 20 seconds for it to "dry" before opening my eyes. It is a wonderful help to us both. We've been using it about 2 yrs now.

Purchased at Calver Optometrist for A$35.00.

Burning sensation

published

I had been suffering from dry eyes and decided to give ac timist a go. Sprayed on my eyelids as directed, (not into my eyes) and it really stung and felt like my lids were on fire. It took a few minutes to calm down, and didn't help the dryness at all. A few days later I tried again and still had the same reaction. My eyelids were sore and itchy for a couple of weeks after using the ac timist spray.
I gave the actimist to my son to try and he had exactly the same reaction.
I have since used some different eye drops without any issues at all.
I will never use actimist again or recommend it to anyone.

Too Good To Be True.

published

Optrex did not relieve my dry eyes. The ethanol burnt the top lids. Sore red dry for many days after using the product. I do not recommend the product. Waste of my money.

Pain

published

The pain from my eyes stinging is terrible . Only used once never again for the price I didn’t expect it to sting like that . Made my eyes worse

Great and Terrible

published

I get dry eyes using contacts and this works amazingly for my eyes. The downside is the few seconds of burning pain from the Ethanol... after that it's pretty awesome

Optrex is a con.

published

Optrex does not relieve dry or irritated eyes. I found it did the exact opposite. The eyelids and skin immediately surrounding my eyes became sore and eyes seemed more irritated. They improved after I stopped using it.

Don't believe the hype

published

Initially disappointed, but have had minor relief from regular use. Would go for a normal eye drop over this and could have got two of those for this. To the people spraying in your eye, it's not meant to be used that way! The liquid attaches to your eye folds and is dispersed into the slowly as you blink. Tempting to spray directly, but not how this one works.

Does NOT cool, soothe, refresh, relieve or revive

published

Tried this for dry eyes. It is supposed to cool, soothe and refresh....or relieve or revive
It does none of these.
In fact it makes it worse. Eyes are more irritated after use.
I even doubt the so called science behind it.
My optometrist did Not recommend it either.
Very disappointing.

Waste of money

published

My eyes can get dry and irritated in winter as the humidity decreases. I thought I'd try the spray as it seemed like a good idea despite the high(ish) price. Well, I've used it a few times and while it's not irritated my eyes as it seems to do for some, it simply does nothing. No relief, no lubrication. I've resorted back to drops which work. Quite disappointed. One good thing about it is that if you have friends or family who do find it effective, you can share the bottle as there is no contact with the skin and therefore no infection risk as there is with eye drop bottles.
I later spoke with a friend who finds it quite effective, so I gave her my nearly full bottle. Apparently, it works for some and not others.

Not very good.

published

They claim it helps relieve dry eyes which just isn't the case. Before you think this might just be isolated to me know that friends and family that have used this have reported similar effects. First thing spraying it on you will become aware of it being on your eyes as your eyes throb slightly. Over time especially in windy conditions your eyes start to throb more and more. It took a full day for the sore throbbing to stob. If a product makes your eyes feel worse than they did before use perhaps it's time to find a better product.

doesn't work

published

Bought for severe acute allergic reaction of unknown origin. Tried it as prescribed. No relief. Found washing eyes with water better and much cheaper. Can't recommend try water instead. As I write this eyes still burning 10 minutes since using spray.

This worked for me

published

I think everyone is different when it comes to health and personal care products and the reviews seem to be mostly negative for this product but I found it works well for me. I sit in front of a computer in air conditioning most days and I wear glasses. It takes about 5 minutes to work but once it does my eyes feel great. Before I spray they usually feel dry and grainy. The only negative i find with this product is that it gets all over your face and if you don't wipe it off you are left with a sticky face.

Don't buy waste money

published

I brought this product thinking it will help my irritated eyes- in fact I feel like poking them out now they so irritated so itchy so sore I rubbing them I am 100 percent sure they made my eyes worse and I can not believe they are on the market. Waste money and my eyes are killing me now worst ever been due to optrex actimist so trust these reviews wish I had read but I thought a simple spray over eye with eyes closed is safe no think again.

Waste of Money and Ineffective

published

I wish I had seen these reviews before trying this product. It had no effect whatsoever and in fact felt like it added to my irritation. I had to wash my eyes with water to make them more comfortable. I went back to my old style eye drops which gave me almost instant relief. I just don't understand what is going on with this product's hype. I recommend you avoid disappointment and stick with the tried and tested eye drops.
