Buy Optrex Bloodshot Eye Drops Online

Optrex Bloodshot eye drops are specially formulated to relieve the appearance of bloodshot eyes, which is characterised by a distinctive redness and a more prominent appearance of blood vessels.

Optrex Bloodshot eye drops contain 2 active ingredients; distilled witch hazel and naphazoline hydrochloride, which work together to relieve swelling and inflammation in the eyes.

You can buy eye drops for bloodshot eyes, such as Optrex Bloodshot eye drops, online from our UK pharmacy.

What causes bloodshot eyes?

There are many possible causes of bloodshot eyes. While some causes of bloodshot eyes can be avoided by taking precautions or adjusting your environment, other causes may be harder to avoid.

Causes of bloodshot eyes include:

  • allergies (hay fever)
  • chemicals and irritants (chlorine, sliced onions and chillies)
  • contact lenses
  • dirt
  • infections (conjunctivitis)
  • injured blood vessel
  • overusing eye drops
  • smoke and pollutants

While bloodshot eyes can clear up on their own, they can be uncomfortable and irritating. If you find your bloodshot eyes to be particularly bothersome, you can use treatments such as Optrex Bloodshot eyes to relieve any discomfort and clear the condition up.

Irritants such as dirt, smoke and pollen can irritate the eyes, resulting in inflammation in and around the eyes. If an irritant is not cleared from the eye promptly, it could lead to an infection.

Infections, such as conjunctivitis, can also cause irritation and inflammation. An infection in the eye may be accompanied by an infectious discharge.

Wearing contact lenses can also lead to bloodshot eyes. It is often recommended to wear contact lenses for no longer than 12 consecutive hours in a day. Applying and removing contact lenses increases your risk of eye infections as you run the risk of introducing bacteria and dirt into your eye. Always wash your hands before and after applying and removing contact lenses, and always wash your contact lenses in contact lens cleaning solution to prevent infections.

Using eye drops can temporarily relieve discomfort, redness and irritation brought on by eye conditions. However, overusing eye drops can cause eye conditions to worsen. If you regularly experience eye irritations, or feel you are using eye drops too often, speak to your doctor.

Are bloodshot eyes dangerous?

In most cases, red, bloodshot eyes are not serious and should clear up on their own. In some cases, however, redness of the eye can be the sign of an infection or another underlying medical condition.

If you are experiencing pain, discharge from the eye, inflammation of the conjunctiva, and bloodshot eyes at the same time, you should speak to your doctor as it could be the sign of an eye infection.

If you experience disturbances to your vision, such as flashing, wavy patterns, or complete loss of vision, go straight to the accident and emergency department of the nearest hospital.


How to get rid of bloodshot eyes?

Bloodshot eyes usually go away on their own and are not typically life threatening, though they can be uncomfortable. If you are suffering discomfort, there are some things you can do to treat bloodshot eyes.

If you have a bloodshot eye and wear contacts, swap your contact lenses for glasses instead until your bloodshot eye clears up. Wash your contact lenses in contact lens cleaning solution before reinserting them.

It is important not to rub or touch your eyes while they are bloodshot. Rubbing your eyes can introduce your eyes to further dirt or bacteria, which can worsen your symptoms. If you have dirt in your eye, rubbing the afflicted eye can increase the risk of a corneal abrasion - a scratch on the outermost layer of the eye.

Try placing a cold or warm compress over the affected eye - this could be a ball of cotton wool or a towel soaked in cold or warm water.

Make-up, especially eyeliner, may exacerbate present symptoms. You may consider using hypoallergenic make-up, which is less likely to affect you, or avoid eye make-up altogether until your symptoms have cleared.

Speak to a pharmacist if you are unsure which treatments would be best for you. They will be able to suggest a suitable treatment for your bloodshot eye, and offer further advice on managing the symptoms.

You can buy Optrex Bloodshot eye drops online without a prescription from Prescription Doctor today.


How do I use Optrex Bloodshot eye drops?

You should always wash your hands before applying eye drops to prevent any debris or bacteria from getting in your eye.

Before using Optrex eye drops, check the solution is clear. Do not use Optrex eye drops if the solution appears cloudy or discoloured.

Remove contact lenses before applying Optrex eye drops. You can reinsert your contact lenses 15 minutes after you applied Optrex Bloodshot eye drops.

Take care when handling Optrex Bloodshot eye drops. If handled wrongly, the bottle can become contaminated with common bacteria and lead to eye infections.

Tilt your head back, look up and pull your lower eyelid down.

Holding the dropper directly over your eye, gently squeeze to administer 1 drop into your eye. Take care not to let the dropper touch your eye or any surrounding area, as this introduce bacteria or dirt to the dropper.

Close your eye for 1 or 2 minutes.

Repeat these steps for your other eye if necessary.

Do not use Optrex eye drops more than 4 times a day.

If your symptoms do not improve within 24 hours, stop using Optrex Bloodshot eye drops and speak to your doctor.

What should I do if I forget to take Optrex Bloodshot eye drops when I should?

Optrex Bloodshot eye drops are used as and when needed. You may take them at regular intervals throughout the day until your eyes return to normal. Do not apply more eye drops to make up for the ones you forgot.

What should I do if I apply too many eye drops?

If you accidentally apply more drops of Optrex Bloodshot eye drops than you should, or feel you are using them too frequently, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Using more eye drops - or using them more frequently - is unlikely to clear your bloodshot eyes faster. However, overusing eye drops can lead to bloodshot or irritated eyes.
