Struggling with itchy, sore, red or gritty-feeling eyes? You’re not alone. Dry eyes – which can be caused by spending too much time on screens, ageing or a lack of sleep – are a common problem for adults in the UK. But TheraTears® eye drops can help by replacing lost moisture, soothing and repairing dry, tired eyes when applied regularly. TheraTears eye drops are an advanced five-in-one formula, developed in collaboration with eye experts and consumers. The over-the-counter range is contact lens-friendly and contains soothing, natural ingredients including hyaluronic acid, witch hazel and mallow. So, with three products to choose from, which one is right for you?
Best for square eyes: TheraTears Screen Eyes
More than half of UK adults spend 11 hours or more daily looking at screens and, as we tend to blink less when staring at a screen, this can lead to dry, sore eyes. TheraTears Screen Eyes can help by reducing strain, relieving irritation, refreshing and protecting. It also contains Euphrasia, a plant extract which is thought to reduce redness, and helps eyes appear whiter and brighter.

Best for mature eyes: TheraTears Dry or Tired Eye Drops 50+
If you’re over 50 years, you may be more likely to get dry eyes. As we age, we naturally produce fewer tears – and health conditions, medication and hormonal changes can all cause eyes to dry out. TheraTears’ 50+ formula contains hyaluronic acid for instant and long-lasting relief, plus chamomile and mallow to freshen and calm mature eyes. Plus, it's preservative free, so suitable for those who need to use more frequently.
Best for overnight repair: TheraTears Dry or Tired Overnight Restore Eye Drops
If you struggle to get a good night’s sleep, love reading before bedtime or don’t shut your eyes fully while sleeping, you could more likely to develop dry eyes. This preservative-free formula is ideal to use as part of your night-time routine, providing immediate comfort and hydration, and then working through the night to restore and repair, thanks to its hyaluronic acid content.
