  • Dwelle questions

    I think this is the right thread, but I wanted to know two things.

    I ordered a bottle of Dwelle, and I got the one that's not "Night" even though I ordered from this page:

    The drops feel like any other drops - that is, they don't feel thicker or leave residue on my eyes, although I do get rid of excess fluid after the drop.

    Also my question was - what is the main difference between Dwelle (why is Dwelle so much more effective for most people) and other lubricating drops like Refresh/Optive/Systane/etc?

    I moved this from the end of an old thread as we discourage posting in the archives and reviving threads more than a year old. Sorry for any confusion about the labelling. I have not posted a new picture in the shop since the product acquired Focus' Labs label. Exact same product though, made in the same place, just a redesigned label. The "Night & Day" labeling is from back when I used to get both Dakrina (sigh) and Dwelle made.

    I'm on my way out the door so I can't address the other questions now but I'll try to in a day or so if someone else doesn't chime in.

      Ahh, ok, thanks.

      And sorry about posting in an old thread, I got to it from a previous search, so I forgot to check the dates on there.

      I did notice that my eyes feel much more comfortable after a drop in each. Though that may just be new eye drop placebo...

        Ok so it looks as if Dwelle is really helping me! I don't feel the dry eye sting anymore! And I'm not relying on a lot of water anymore! This is only my third day.

        Looks like this is what was promised. I wonder what the differences are between this and other eye drops and why it helps so much more. Does it have to do with oncotic pressure?

          Dr. Holly's drops improve the eye surface wettability, or something to this effect.

          After 5 months of use it's not curing me but it's definitely the best drop I've used.

            Love Dwelle

            I love Dwelle because my eyes don't close completely while sleeping. When I use Dwelle it sticks my eyelashes together, sealing my eyes shut. A quick splash of water in the morning and I'm good to go. I'm not kidding, I really love it more than using a mask!

              Could someone direct me to a thread specifically about Dwelle? I wanna read what else people have said about it without asking questions which were already answered here.

              Anyway, it's interesting. Seems that Dwelle is kinda sticky when it dries out. I guess that's how it holds the tears (and repairs the corneal tissue?).

                Hi, synes89.

                Below are some threads that discuss Dwelle (there are dozens of them floating around here), and one of these first ones is a description of how Dr. Holly, who invented Dwelle, considers tear film and how its stability is something that is kept with Dwelle and not with other kinds of eye drops.

                I hope this helps,

                  Thank you so much! Will be looking through it. I'm quite sporadic on this forum, so I don't do a lot of digging.
