Review: Rohto Eye Drops

I've had problems with dry eyes for several years now- putting eye drops in my eyes is one of the first things I do every morning.  I've been using cheap eye drops, which work okay, but generally I have to use them several times in the morning before I feel that they're working.  So, I said "yes, please!" when, thanks to my involvement at the Product Review Place, I was presented with the opportunity to review Rohto eye drops.

My first reaction when I opened the box was to say "what an adorable little bottle!" The design of the Rohto eye drop bottle reminds me of a fancy perfume bottle, not eye drops. The bottle is small and thin, so it's easy to stick in a pocket or purse when I pack it for travel.  According to the information I received, the nozzle has a special design that helps prevent contamination. Love that too!

I really have liked these eye drops. I no longer have to reapply eye drops multiple times in the morning, I just put one drop in each eye and my eyes feel so much better.  You can get Rohto eye drops in four different varieties, depending on what your specific eye issue is. Rohto Arctic is designed to soothe eye strain from things like lack of sleep and prolonged computer use, Rohto Cool provides relief for every day redness and dryness, Rohto Ice reduces redness and soothes itch, irritation and burn, and the new Rohto Hydra provides protection against extreme eye dryness with hydration that's the closest to natural tears. You can visit the Rohto website for more information on all of these!

Rohto eye drops are available at most drug, mass and grocery stores nationwide and can also be purchased online. Average retail price is $6.99-8.99 for a 0.4 ounce bottle.

Disclosure: I received samples of Rohto eye drops to test out for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
