The TearRestore mask has become an important part of providing meibomian gland health for me. It allows freedom to see and to do other self-care tasks while effectively maintaining an optimum temperature (unlike other masks that require heating in the microwave). I can do some of my lying-down exercise routines without the heavy weight other masks impose on my eyes. An additional plus is that I can blink my eyes to help stimulate the function of the meibomian glands. The inner packets have a long life and are easily renewed and kept sanitary via the handy heating pot. Thank you TearRestore for simplifying my daily eye health routine!
I've been having to do warm compresses to help with my dryness for the past year and I have always felt much better after, but it wasn't convenient for me. And since I had to heat my eye mask in the microwave it didn't always feel sanitary. But I'm so happy my eye doctor told me about this product and showed me the whole kit! It's so much more convenient and easier to keep my daily schedule. I went back to buy the kettle though just because it's so much easier the use that than boiling the water myself. I also really appreciated my doctor's office explaining how to use everything so well!
My mom told me about TearRestore and it has helped me so much.
I have been struggling with dry eyes for years. It has affected my mental health as I have had to stop doing things I enjoy. Some days it is really bad to the point where I don’t want to wake up because it burns a lot and blinking feels like sandpaper on my eyes. Sometimes I take a sick day from work because my eyes hurt so much. I have had to stop playing video games and doing art projects because any detailed worked would hurt my eyes after a few minutes. I was oversleeping to avoid the pain and stopping the things I enjoyed. Doctors tell me my eyes are normal and nothing is physically wrong. Eye drops only provide temporary relief for a minute or so and then my eyes are dry again.
I have been using TearRestore for 3 months and it has helped me a lot. I can finally make tears when I blink and I have been having less bad days. It is letting me do things I enjoy more like playing video games and doing art projects, things that I struggled to do with my dry eyes. I do and will continue to recommend this to anyone struggling with dry eyes. Thank you so much for your products.
It's nice in a pinch or when I'm sitting at my computer for a long time, but I still strongly prefer my Bruder eye mask. I find it inconvenient to have to boil the mask, and I find that because I can feel myself blinking, I subconsciously blink less frequently, resulting in my eye surface feeling dried out while using the mask.
Reusable heat packs are convenient. Holds good heat for ~10 min. The one-size-fits-all mask is a bit tight on larger heads and the process of recharging the packs in a little tedious, but that is also because the portable/plastic water kettle sold with the mask is not really designed for this. Would try just using a pot of boiling water next time. Assuming that works, the kettle is not worth it.
