Eye Drops vs. Eye Vitamins

Eye Drops vs. Eye Vitamins

Posted by EyePromise on Mar 9th 2023

March is National Nutrition Month, and EyePromise® is using this time to celebrate powerful, natural ingredients included in our expertly crafted eye vitamins. In fact, March 3 was global Omega-3 day, a critical component for finding lasting relief from occasional dry eye. However, drops are usually the go-to for finding occasional dry eye relief. So, what are the differences between over-the-counter drops and an Omega-3-based occasional dry eye vitamin?

EyePromise EZ Tears™

With the help of eye health experts who specialize in occasional dry eye, EyePromise developed an eye vitamin formulation designed to bring relief and support a healthy tear film from the inside out. Cleverly named EyePromise EZ Tears, this daily supplement delivers high-quality Omega-3s with 7 additional soothing ingredients. These natural ingredients were chosen for their ability to soothe the dryness, irritation, itchiness, grittiness, burning, redness, excessive watering, and even blurred vision associated with occasional dry eye.

Over-the-Counter Eye Drops

You probably know what eye drops are. They’re those little bottles of lubricating solution that you administer via drops directly into your eyes to help soothe occasional dry eye. These are almost a knee-jerk solution for someone experiencing occasional dry eye, but they may not provide the relief you’re looking for.


  • Immediate relief
  • Less expensive
  • Widely available
  • Safe to take with a daily multi-vitamin


  • Temporary relief (likely requires multiple doses per day)

Ultimately, it’s your choice how you relieve your occasional dry eye. In fact, you can use a combination of these two options! While EyePromise EZ Tears builds up in your system to provide lasting relief and soothes from the inside, over-the-counter eye drops can provide that instant relief from the outside. But you can’t find relief unless you start now! Try EZ Tears today!
