Why Getting into Your Car this Winter could Be Causing your Dry Eye Pain


I don’t know about you, but at this time of year, the first thing I do when I get in the car is BLAST the heater. Ideally I warm my car up before getting in, but that, realistically does not always happen. So I suffer for the first five minutes of driving in an ice cold car struggling to warm up to a tolerable temperature.

While this practice is sometimes a necessity in order to get you and your car moving as quickly as possible, take a minute to adjust where the vents are pointing when you start to blast that air.  Blowing air directly into your eyes can cause dryness and irritation. Angle the vents so that they are blowing at your feet or onto the wind shield and your eyes will thank you.

For dry eye relief due to winter weather (or blowing your car heater in your face), use a lubricating drop like VIVA Drops.  With no risk of overuse and little to no side effects, give your eyes the moisture they crave.
