The Best Eye Drops, According to Me

Ok, fine, these are pretty much the only eye drops I’ve ever used. The one other time, my coworker had to sit on top of me, hold my eye open, and force them to go in.

These are the only eye drops I’ve been able to get into my eye by myself. Maybe I’ve matured. Maybe their “weird-shaped dropper,” according to Rusty, is the right shape for me to be able to put them in myself. Who knows.

From Japan with love.

Like so many self-care items I’m attached to, Rohto Cooling Eye Drops are from Japan. I have not tried the other varieties, such as Ice All-In-One, Multi-Symptom Relief Cooling Eye Drops and Cool Max Maximum Redness Relief Cooling Eye Drops, but I assume they have the same dropper, and therefore, I could use them. Maximum redness relief sounds enticing.

Anyway, I haven’t really had problems with dry eyes in the past, but this winter, maybe because it’s been so unbearably and unceasingly frigid, I’ve suffered occasional and annoying irritation. Like, scratchy and burning feeling. The eye drops are refreshing. I didn’t experience “burn” the way other people have described, but they are cold, that’s for sure. Like minty-cool for your eyes.

Which may sound horrible, but in real life feels really nice.



  1. My favorite description of the product when you click on the link is the shadow hand holding the box. Because I was really worried I wouldn’t be able to hold the box in my hand.
