My eyes are so dry that in the winter I have to use ointments at night. I have tried this one, Refresh and Genteal and I prefer the Systane. It has the highest concentration of petrolatum and is lower in mineral oil--in other words it is quite heavy, but it works. In the morning my eyes are still comfortable.

As is the case with all of the ointments you are paying $10+ for glorified Vaseline, but since the product needs to be sterile, I don't think there is much choice. This is a messy product, but if you pull the lower rim of your eye out to the side and blink a few times it covers the eye fairly evenly.

One word of caution--don't even think about doing anything that would require clear vision for a while after using an eye ointment! It is like trying to see through extremely dense fog until some of the product is absorbed. I also noticed Systane has a small amount of lanolin, so if you are allergic to it you might want to try another one of the ointments.

I have CHRONIC, NASTY dry eyes, and have *ALWAYS* hated either putting drops or having ~others~ put them in my eyes. But when I developed such bad chronic dry eyes that my EYEBALLS got stuck, I had to do ~something~!!!
I have an EYE **SPECIALIST** that I have seen for it seems like forEVER, but even SHE didn't catch this condition! It was the WONDERFUL Ophthalmologists at Pearle Vision who discovered how BAD it was and came up with a totally "do-able" treatment plan: I use Systane Complete eye drops (they are most like gel, without ~being~ gel, unlike some of the other brands, and they have the FULL endorsement from 4 Dr.'s I have HIGH opinions of) {AND who says you must be a BABY to put drops in your eyes like they do with babies and small children? Just a few drops in the corner near your nose with eyes closed, then slowly open them and let the drops roll in!}
And at night, or ANY time I sleep, or even just have a "itchy, burn-y eye", I put a small amount of this "Nighttime" gel in each eye (advise you do BOTH, even if only one is bugging you...somehow I have "jealous eyes"...they don't like anything done to just ONE of them...LOL!)
One of the more important things to remember is to CLEAN YOUR EYES OUT ~gently~ when you wake up (usually use a bit more of the gel at night) with warm water and a soft cloth (don't poke, duh, right? {looking at self!}) and then to use some drops in each eye, no matter how they feel!
Since starting this regimen, the Retinal Tears {Meaning my RETINAS were detaching, courting blindness!} I had experienced have eased up almost completely (no more "floaters" that look like small bees floating around with me chasing them! LOL!) EYE SAFETY AND CARE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THAT MOST EVERYONE OVERLOOKS! I have been told to NEVER use any other brand than SYSTANE for either the drops or the gel.
I just wish the gel came to Amazon as a PRIME item...but hope springs eternal! :) ENJOY

My Opthalmalogist recommended Systane products to treat "dry eye" four times per day. I found Systane Nighttime, and he thought that was excellent. I really like it, but only when I don't plan to use my eyes for anything but sleep.

It is a heavy ointment, but makes my eyes so comfortable, that I use Systane Ultra drops during the day, only as needed. I feel that my eyes are so much more comfortable by taking the trouble to use this at night. Vision is very blurry when you use this, so I would never use it except at night.

My son cannot produce tears as the result of a genetic condition.

We've tried a number of lubricants for his eyes, but these are by far the best.

They have 94% White Petrolatum, a much higher percentage than many similar ointments.

That makes them costlier, but they're worth it.

Wish I didn't have to use this because it is not fun at all, but it does the job and seems to be higher quality than similar products from other brands that I had tried because they were less expensive. After getting lasik my eyes have been extremely dry, exasperated by the fact that my eye lids don't close all the way while I'm sleeping. A lot of things make it worse; dry air, winter, AC, fans or the heater and I'm in pain all night and for the next day after. I put this ointment in my lower lid, making sure beforehand that everything is done (don't leave any trip hazards on the floor) and I'm ready for sleep because I can't see anything after using it. It's difficult to get used to having a heavy ointment inside your eyelids but it does help and my eyes are much better when I use it nightly.

This stuff really will help your eyes. After trying three different brands, I found this one stays in eyes best and it has actually done away with the redness totally. My vision is clearer also since no more irritation.

I highly recommend Systane Nighttime "Overnight" Eye Ointment. I suffer from "Clinical Dry Eye Syndrome" and I must use several Eye OTC's as well as Prescriptions such as "Restastis." If you need additional moisture, this is a great choice. It is very heavy at first; feels like Vaseline for a few minutes and you will experience blurred vision.
I would recommend that you apply it after you have gotten into bed for the night. I use it regularly and I am very satisfied.

My eye doctor told me to buy this product for my dry eyes. It is a little thick but works.

Must use the strongest of the Eye Lubricants now. This is the strongest and now both my wife and I use this every night time due to aging, too much watching computer and some television DVD'S. Also, allergies are a big contributor. During the day I use Alcon Systane Lubricant Eye Drops.
