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.
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.
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).
