Since I have had issues with my eyesight in the last few months I have become more aware about these little precious organs. I have suffered from inflammation on both eyes due to stressful events in my personal life. I learnt that the eyes are the camera of our brain . For sure stress is neither good for the brain nor for any part of our body. When your eyes are not healthy they don’t look good and the skin around the eyes is extremely fine and sensitive . The skin can get dry, dull, itchy and inflamed .

I was lucky to go to an ophthalmologist here in Spain who diagnosed my eye issues in less than fifteen minutes. She prescribed different type of drops that started to work immediately .

Therefore my eyes got instantly fresh and moisturised .
