Infused Water for Eye Health

Drinking plenty of water and maintaining hydration throughout the day is important for many reasons — including the health of your eyes.  Dehydration can cause symptoms of dry eyes, eye redness and swollen eyelids.
These easy to follow recipe steps can help you create a refreshing infused water drink to maintain healthy fluid levels during the party season.

 

Infused Water Recipe

1. Use a large glass pitcher or jug.

2. Add a bunch of chopped herbs from this selection: Mint, ginger, basil, rosemary.

3. Add one or two of your favourite fruits and vegetables(washed and sliced) for example choose from a selection of cucumber, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemons, limes, oranges, kiwi, peaches, watermelon  and  add to the pitcher.

4.Fill the jug with fresh filtered water and leave to cool in the refrigerator  for a couple of  hours so the flavours can blend into the water.
Popular flavour combinations: Mint, ginger and cucumber; strawberry, blueberry and basil; peach, mango and rosemary.

The infused water will last for up to 2 days; however, the fruit and veggies may get water-logged so often it is best consumed within 24 hours

Helen Harbi Patient Testimonial

Our patient Helen Harbi  recently sent us this kind testimonial.

“I just wanted to tell you I had a fantastic experiences in Sharm el sheikh scuba diving !!! With the use of my Contact lenses I was able to see the most beautiful fish in the world !!!! From the biggest to the tiniest wee fish and of course no forgetting the huge turtles !!! I had both hands on the turtles back while he was eating his dinner. Fortunately for me he was a vegetarian !!!! I would never have seen them without my contacts in. I feel very privileged to have met such lovely people as yourselves. I did 5 dives when I was out there and because of my contacts I can’t wait until I dive again. I managed to get the contacts in sometimes in a couple of times but I even managed in one go !!! once both !!!! Thank you all for your time and care. I’ll always be very grateful. Helen Harbi x”
