Q: Where are the products in the DRYEYEKIT sourced from?
A: All our products are sourced from Australian distributors.
Q: Do any of the DRYEYEKIT products contain preservatives?
A: No. We've carefully selected preservative free products to minimise irritation and hypersensitivity caused by preservatives found in most eye drops
Q: Why do my eyes sting when I insert the drops? Is this normal?
A: The Manuka honey is a natural antiseptic which reduces the ph level in the eye. It is normal to feel a stinging sensation for a few minutes after the drops are added to your eye.
Q: My eyes go red and watery after I put in the Optimel honey eye drops. Is that normal?
A: Yes. Your eyes will water and some redness may initially be seen, especially in the first 1 - 2 minutes. However you should expect it to disappear after about 5 minutes.
Q: Can I use the Dry Eye Kit with contact lenses?
A: Yes. However, you do need to wait at least 30 minutes after you've used the Manuka honey eye drops (Optimel) before inserting your contact lenses.
The Hylo-forte can be applied with your contact lenses in.
Q: I'm allergic to honey and bee products, can I still use the DRYEYEKIT?
A: No. Manuka honey is produced by bees. Therefore, if you have allergies to honey or any bee products DO NOT USE the DRYEYEKIT.

ABOUT DRY EYES
Q: Why are my eyes dry?
A: The two main parts of a healthy tear film is the aqueous layer and the lipid layer.
This is the watery part and makes up the bulk of the tear film. The aqueous layer is secreted from the lacrimal gland, located underneath the top eyelids, and with regular blinking spreads evenly over the eye surface. In the majority of dry eye cases the aqueous layer is adequate. However, the evaporation of this watery layer can be swift, causing the sensation of gritty, burning, uncomfortable eyes - even if your eyes feel watery.
This evaporation is due to an inadequate lipid layer.
The lipid layer is the oily part of your tear film. It is secreted from the meibomiam glands, located on your lid margins, and keeps the aqueous layer on your eyes longer. In the vast majority of cases, chronic dry eyes is due to meibomiam gland dysfunction and the resulting reduction in the lipid layer.
Q: What causes eyes to feel dry?
A: There are many reasons why the eyes natural balance is altered, such as:
- Dry environments – working in air conditioned offices
- Contact lens wear
- Computer use
- Low blink rate – if you have a tendency to blink infrequently
- Age – as you age your eyes produce less tears resulting in dryer eyes
- Trauma to eyes
- Smog or high pollution environments
- Dusty environments – working in an outdoor windy, dusty environment
- Eye make-up
- Disease and infections such as blepharitis,
