To be ‘bright eyed and bushy tailed’ is still considered a sign of good health and vitality. Men and women will go to great lengths and expense to appear to have wide awake eyes not hidden behind eye glasses.
- Cosmetic surgery whether of the eye lids or to correct for refractive errors is considered preferable to leaving the eyes as nature intended.
- Women in particular will spend money on creams that claim to slow the development of or eliminate wrinkles and bags around the eyes. Unfortunately these creams can often disrupt the ocular tear film resulting in sore, gritty and red eyes.
- It is important to be careful with any creams, ointment or cosmetics that come within finger tip distance of the eye area – no matter how carefully they have been tested and verified as safe.
