Taking care of our eyes has taken on great importance in this pandemic. People are staying at home 99% of the time with great possibility of eye strain due to overuse of gadgets and computers. Then, there’s the fact that we can actually catch the Covid 19 virus from the habit of rubbing our eyes.
“There’s an oddly satisfying feeling when we rub our eyes to relieve itchiness, but it’s a very dangerous habit that can, most of the time, lead to eye infection or in some cases, virus transmission. We really have to be careful,” says top ophthalmologist and glaucoma specialist Dr. Maika Malgapu-Uy.
Cleansing the eyes through the use of eye drops is a health routine that most people take for granted. But we should do it to prevent our eyes from becoming irritated or itchy, which then forces us to rub our eyes later on.
Gladly, Eye Mo Daily Care was launched recently to complement the existing line that includes Eye Mo Red Eyes to relieve red eyes irritation and Eye Mo Moist to soothe dry and tired eyes.
“We are pleased to announce the relaunch of Eye Mo Daily Care for the Philippines consumers. As a market leader, Eye Mo takes pride in educating consumers on the importance of taking care of their eyes. Daily hygiene of our eyes is very important especially during the time of Pandemic. Eye Mo Daily Care will help Filipinos to clean their eyes every day and remove itchiness,” said Mr. Weitarsa Hendarto, Sr. Vice President for Marketing & International Operations of Combiphar, the makers of Eye Mo.
Young actor Ken Chan was chosen as the new product’s endorser. He encourages daily eye care as people go about their day-to-day activities. “Even something as ordinary as commuting, or meeting new people could be a precursor to possible contamination. Touching our face or eyes is almost second nature to us. It’s always best to have an eye drop handy for good measure,” he notes.
As part of its commitment to provide accessible eye care, Eye Mo shares tips on how to take care of your eyes :
- When your eyes are itchy, don’t rub them. Washing with water is not enough. You can use an eye drop that can cleans your eyes and relieve itchiness e.g Eye Mo Daily Care
- Put together an eye care travel kit. When you don’t have access to soap and water for handwashing, having sanitary supplies on-hand is a great backup in the event you need to touch your eyes. Eye Mo Daily Care can be a good way to proactively manage potential eye irritation, therefore helping limit the need to touch or rub your eyes throughout the day.
