A lot of people I know are always quite shocked by how seriously I take my eye health. It isn’t something that comes up as a topic of conversation all too often so when it does I guess my thoughts can be a surprise. From the age of 13 I have required glasses. The first moment I perused the diabolical choice of NHS frames I knew I would be a contact lens wearer as soon as I turned 16. And this is where my need to excellent eye health comes in. If I have an eye infection I can’t wear my lenses. If my eyes get puffy and irritated, I can’t wear my lenses. So when I was asked to try out The Ice Doctor a Cold Eye Compress which helps reduce inflammation and swelling around the eyes I had to give it a go.

The Ice Doctor

The Ice Doctor is a cold eye compress and is designed to be put in the freezer to be cooled. It is filled with lots of natural wheat beads which means even when frozen it can be moulded easily to the shape of your face and ensure that your eyes are well covered with the cooling effect. The compress is for use to alleviate the symptoms of hay fever, migraines, allergies and general inflammation of the eyes.

The Ice Doctor Cold Eye Compress is the perfect eye mask to alleviate allergies. This simple hayfever remedy helps reduce swelling and inflammation of the eyes. Eye health and eye care can be simple and easy to achieve at home.

Does It Work?

Quite simply; Yes.

I was a little concerned that the mask would be unbearably cold straight out of the freezer but I didn’t find that to be the case. The mask had a lovely soothing sensation and really reduced the swelling in my eyes. I tested this after a long night with Ellie waking up every 90 minutes due to stomach cramps. I was beyond tired the next day and my eyes showed it! But after 10 minutes with the eye mask on my eyes felt rejuvenated and I felt strangely awake considering I just wanted to be asleep..

I get early season hayfever so I know I will be needing this mask very soon and whilst it may not help with my nose I am very excited to have help with my eye symptoms. Yes, I could just wear my glasses for the worst days of hayfever but I:

a) Don’t like my glasses very much as they are a bit uncomfortable and I am not used to the loss of peripheral vision.

and

b) They are not my exact prescription and I resent paying at least £150 to have something updated that I wear from the bathroom to bed every evening.

Where Can I Get Myself One?

I got my mask from Feel Good Contacts, who I can’t recommend highly enough in themselves. Feel Good Contacts are a company who pride themselves in providing high quality eye products to keep your eyes healthy. And I can vouch for them. One of the reasons I was keen to try this mask was because I actually order my contact lenses from Feel Good Contacts and like the high quality service they provide. They offer next working day delivery on all orders placed before 7pm and this is free if you spend over £45 (which I always do with my lenses).

    I’ve never heard of the Ice Doctor before but sounds like something I could use! I also started to wear glasses at 13 and moved onto contacts when I was 18. In those days, you could only get hard lenses and they felt like you literally had pieces of glass in your eyes. Could have done with the Ice Doctor then!

    I am ‘ohhhhhhing’ over this just reading the post! I have only recently picked up my first pair of glasses for reading and am trying to rest my eyes more often now. Staring at screens all day doesn’t help! Sim x

    I love a good eye mask, my eyes get really dry since laser surgery and I find a mask really helps. I must dig mine back out.

    This sounds like a great product. I seemed to have sore eyes all holidays and I’m sure this would have helped me no end. Half the time I felt like my eyes were stabbing from being so dry. I shall check them out thank you.

    Whilst I am not a glass or contact lens wearer I am loving the sound of the ice doctor and how ingenious, I love that is works for you.

    I’ve had glasses too, since I was about 12 or 13. I could never wear contacts though, the idea of having to go near my eyeballs with my fingers freaks me out! I’d love one of those masks though.

    I often suffer from eye strain and I bet this would really help #ThursdayTeam

    Eye health is so important. I’ve worn glasses since I was 9 so it’s always on my radar. I might have to check this out ! #ThursdayTeam

    This sounds brilliant. My husband suffers with terrible hay fever and also migraines so it could be a lifesaver this summer! #thursdayteam

    Wow it sounds great. I got my first pair of glasses when I was 12 and I hated them. I wore glasses until having laser-eye surgery in 2007. Unfortunately it didn’t take and I’m wearing glasses again, but after the laser-eye surgery I certainly wouldn’t be using contacts – anything to do with my eyes makes me shudder. Brr. Anyway I totally get where you’re coming from with your eye health. And it sounds like this would be great for migraine sufferers (I am one) because the cold compress can really help when a bad one strikes. 🙂

    I could only imagine how fabulous this would feel after a long night up with baby or to calm your sinuses when they’re inflamed. Thanks for sharing! #ThursdayTeam

    I think I might have to make use of your discount code… This sounds fab! #ThursdayTeam

    Oo this sounds like something I need in my life! A baby who wakes up during the night and a toddler who likes early mornings, I am certainly in need of something to help waken and de-puff 🙂

    This sounds Great! I feel like I need one even just to soothe my tired eyes. I am supposed to wear glasses but I am so rubbish at wearing them regularly 🙈 I couldn’t do contact lenses! X #bloggerclubuk

    Oh I’ve not heard about these before, I can imagine how relaxing it would be.
