The Best Drops for Occasional Dry Eye Aren't Drops At All

Posted by EyePromise on Aug 10th 2023

Finding relief for occasional dry eye can be a long process for many people. It starts with denial: I don’t have occasional dry eye; this is just a temporary issue. Then, when the problem persists, most people turn to over-the-counter eye drops either because a family member or friend recommended them, they saw a commercial, or they just wandered into a store and picked up a bottle. However, there’s a better solution for occasional dry eye relief, and it’s called EyePromise® EZ Tears™.

Do You Have Occasional Dry Eye?

First, you should know whether or not you suffer from occasional dry eye. This eye health issue is accompanied by symptoms like redness, burning, dryness, irritation, itchiness, grittiness, excessive watering, the feeling of something in the eye, and even blurred vision. These issues typically stem from the health of the tear film.

The tear film is layers of substances working together to keep the surface of the eye lubricated. If any of these layers are faulty, the tears being produced are either too low-quality or aren’t enough.

What Causes Occasional Dry Eye?

This defect in tear film can happen for a number of reasons spanning from environmental factors to medications to just poor tear production. Here are some of the most common causes:


Occasional dry eye is a part of the natural aging process, and most people over age 65 experience some form of related symptoms.


Women are more likely to develop occasional dry eye due to hormonal changes caused by pregnancy, the use of oral contraceptives, and menopause. However, men are also susceptible to hormonal changes later in life, which can lead to symptoms as well.


Certain medicines like antihistamines, decongestants, blood pressure medications, and antidepressants can reduce the number of tears produced in the eyes.

Health Concerns

Individuals with auto-immune concerns, trouble controlling their blood sugar levels, other health issues are more likely to have issues caused by occasional dry eye. Also, problems with the eyelids, eye’s surfaces, or the inward or outward turning of eyelids can cause occasional dry eye.

Contact Lenses

Contact lens wearers are particularly susceptible to occasional dry eye as soft lens materials require additional lubrication, and a balanced tear film is vital to successful lens wearing. Additionally, medicated eye drops may exacerbate occasional dry eye in contact lens wearers. It is estimated that up to half of contact lens wearers discontinue use due to discomfort often caused by occasional dry eye.

Environmental Conditions

Exposure to smoke, wind, and dry climates can increase tear evaporation resulting in occasional dry eye symptoms. Failure to blink regularly, such as when staring at a digital screen for long periods of time, can also contribute.

Seasonal Changes

Like exposure, the winter months can cause tears to evaporate more quickly as humidity levels drop and home heating systems are activated, which results in drier air and occasional dry eye.


Refractive eye surgeries like LASIK can cause decreased tear production and lead to occasional dry eye.

Fast Relief From Occasional Dry Eye

People looking for an occasional dry eye solution often look to over-the-counter eye drops because they can provide nearly instant relief. However, this relief is often temporary and requires multiple uses per day – sometimes up to 5-7 doses every day! Additionally, many over-the-counter eye drops contain preservatives and chemicals that aren’t necessarily good for the eyes. These chemicals may impact your long-term eye health and may even be habit-forming.

EyePromise EZ Tears may not provide instant relief, but some people experience reduced symptoms in as little as 2-3 days, while many others can feel relief in as little as one week. In fact, the Ocular Nutrition Impact On Tear Film (ONIT) Study demonstrated that most participants experienced relief in 30 days, which is why EZ Tears is backed by a 30-day, money-back, satisfaction guarantee. Additionally, EZ Tears is formulated with high-quality, natural ingredients that are beneficial for both eye and overall health.

Lasting Relief From Occasional Dry Eye

As mentioned, eye drops typically provide temporary relief and don’t solve the underlying issues that contribute to occasional dry eye. Even the benefits of some prescription drops can wane over time, leading to a resurgence of symptoms. These drops are also introducing pharmaceuticals to your body that it doesn’t recognize.

EyePromise EZ Tears has been demonstrated to provide lasting relief, even after the 30-day satisfaction guarantee runs out. It provides nutrients your body needs for overall health and that help soothe occasional dry eye from the inside out. This is why EZ Tears can provide continuous relief without the concern of harsh chemicals.
