Keep Those Eyes Clean Optique 1 Eye Drops {Review & Giveaway}

I have had the chance to review Boiron’s Optique 1 Eye Drops.

I think this is an amazing product that is safe for the whole family to use.

I have a problem with feeling fatigued during the day. My eyes get so tired where all I do is read and write, so these eye drops were like a heaven sent product. All I have to do if I feel my eyes getting heavy is use one dose of the eye drops and my eyes are fully refreshed and full of life again. This means alot when I have tons of paperwork to scour over and feel like going to sleep...

Not only do they relieve eye irritation due to fatigue, it also relieves airborne irritants such as ragweed, dust, and pollen. But it also soothes red, dry, itchy, burning or tired eyes.

It comes in 20 single doses to keep the eye drops sterile. Do not touch tip of container to any surface

Our eyes are extremely sensitive and vulnerable, and they need gentle treatment when irritated by dust, ragweed, and other pollens, or by wind and sand from a day at the beach. Unfortunately, some traditional over-the-counter eye drops that contain decongestants, antihistamines or vasoconstrictors can only be used for short periods of time.

Luckily, Boiron’s Optique 1 Eye Drops can provide reliable and safe relief when experiencing red, dry, itchy and burning eyes due to fatigue or airborne irritants. Optique 1 does not contain vasoconstrictors or astringents, so there is no fear of a rebound effect or worsening of a condition. They can be used as often as needed without risk of overdose. The drops work naturally and are safe for everyone in the family.

Also, Optique 1 Eye Drops are packaged in sterile, single-use doses, making them preservative free. Single dose units can prevent contamination unlike traditional multiple-use containers. You can find this product in 10-dose or 20-dose sizes. More information can be found by visiting our Website.

Our Mission

"To stimulate the evolution of healthcare by promoting scientific homeopathy as a more compassionate, more ecological and more comprehensive approach to medicine and to allow every physician to know homeopathy and integrate it into their daily practice."

Our History

Boiron was founded in 1932 in Lyon, France, by twin brothers and pharmacists Jean and Henri Boiron. It is now the world leader in homeopathy. More about Boiron’s history in France and throughout the world can be found at www.boiron.com.

In 1983, Boiron established a U.S. presence by acquiring John A. Borneman & Sons, Inc., in suburban Philadelphia. Borneman was a family business with four generations of homeopathic expertise focused on supplying medicines directly to physicians and the public throughout the United States.

The fledgling company commonly, referred to as Boiron USA, employed a staff of seven who performed all tasks from harvesting and manufacturing to order processing and shipping. An average of 25 orders were shipped per day with a new focus on serving retail and pharmacy channels nationwide. 

In 1985, the company’s first president, Daniel Cohen, began to focus on serving retail channels with consumer-friendly products. In 1987, Cohen returned to France and Thierry Montfort arrived in the U.S. from Lyon to take the helm and continue the expansion in retail distribution.

In response to a significant interest in homeopathy in California, Boiron established a branch in Simi Valley, California, outside of Los Angeles in 1989.

Ten years after the acquisition of Borneman, Boiron invested in the construction of a new building and moved from the original Borneman site in Norwood to neighboring Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. The building continues to service as both the Boiron USA headquarters as well as the manufacturing and distribution branch for the East Coast. The facility houses a high-tech manufacturing laboratory, an innovative order fulfillment center, and spacious warehouse and automated shipping operations.

After heading Boiron Canada for 7 years, namesake Thierry Boiron became Boiron USA’s third president in 1995 when his predecessor returned to France as a newly appointment board member.

After much growth and the need to contract for larger warehousing on both the East and West Coast, a newly built West Coast branch was completed in June 2005. The new 20,500 square-foot building offers a high-tech manufacturing laboratory and warehouse capabilities to meet future demands. Beyond enhancing service, the new building also can accommodate 50 people in a specially designed conference room to facilitate educational efforts as Boiron is currently focused on outreach to the medical community.

After Thierry Boiron returned to France to serve as managing director of the Boiron Group, Ludovic Rassat was appointed the fourth president of the U.S. division in January 2006.

Today, Boiron USA has evolved into a leading U.S. homeopathic medicine supplier, fulfilling up to 1,000 orders per day during the busy flu season. The company partners with brokers, distributors, and retail chains to make homeopathic products available to a wide variety of consumers and physicians. Boiron’s staff of 120+ consists of a medical doctor, four pharmacists and lab technicians, accounting and IT personnel, a marketing staff, a national sales force, customer service, order fulfillment and shipping professionals—many of whom have an impressively long career with the company.

Our Commitment

As world leader in homeopathy, Boiron is committed to lead by example.

  • Our Commitment to the Environment
    The Boiron Group has a strong sense of obligation to respect the environment. The preparation of our medicines has limited impact on the environment. The main effects derive from extracting raw materials (continuity of species gathered), water pollution (mainly organic and biodegradable) and waste. As a counterbalance, Boiron promotes re-supplying wild or organically-farmed plants when possible. This sequentially improves the quality of raw materials used.
    Additionally, the Boiron Group works with 120 botanist-harvesters. These specialists are well-versed in diagnosing the land and employing harvesting strategies to anticipate continuity of supplies for the future. They generally harvest plants from their natural surroundings, which are then used fresh and wild in accordance with the balance of nature and the specifications of the principal pharmacopoeia.

Boiron is generously giving away one 20-dose box of Optique 1 for one lucky Lime Green Dreams Reader..
