For over a year, I was trying everything possible to battle what I thought was dry eye. Flaxseed oil, eye drops, warm compresses, Castor oil drops. Nothing worked until an optometrist diagnosed me with eye mites and told me to use Cliradex. The first night I used the wipe was the first night in over a year that I didn't wake up and put eye drops in. I had been doing that at least three times a night. My eyes feel great now. The wipes are refreshing and do not sting.
