Several of our staff returned to work this morning with sore throats and dry irritated eyes from the continuing air quality issues here in the Northwest. While the forecast shows that the haze should be clearing in the next couple of days, what can you do right now to help soothe your eyes?
Over the counter preservative free artificial tears while outside, consider trying a gel tear for longer lasting relief. For severe symptoms, try an lubricating ointment, which can be especially comforting at nighttime. We also offer goggles that keep the moisture in and the outside out which are also great for hikers, skiing and other outdoor activities.
While we all hope the air quality increases in the near future, these easy steps should help increase your eye comfort immediately.
