How do you pronounce ROHTO?
How are ROHTO eye drops different from other eye drops on the market?
ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops not only relieve redness, dryness and irritation, but also provide a special cooling sensation that helps "wake up" tired eyes.
What are the differences between each of the brand's four eye drops?
The newest product offering, ROHTO Hydra is specifically formulated to lubricate and provide long-lasting moisture for dry, irritated eyes with the closest hydration to natural tears, while also providing the brand's signature cooling "kick." ROHTO Cool is a general purpose eye drop that combines redness relief with a gentle cooling sensation. ROHTO Ice is used to relieve redness while also soothing itch, irritation and burn with an intense cooling sensation. ROHTO Arctic revives strained, overworked eyes and relieves redness with a more intense "pick me up" sensation.
How often can I use ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops each day?
The recommended usage is one or two drops in each eye up to four times daily. If you're wearing contact lenses, remove contacts before using ROHTO, and wait at least 15 minutes before re-inserting.
The warning states "remove contacts lenses before using." How long do I have to wait before I put my contacts back in?
We recommend that you wait at least 15 minutes before putting contacts back in. This gives the drops a chance to dissipate from the ocular surface.
Can I use the drops if I am pregnant or nursing?
There are no known reasons not to use the drops while pregnant or while nursing. However, as with all drug products, we recommend that you check with your health care professional prior to use.
Will the drops work after the expiration date has passed?
We recommend you discard all OTC drug products with an expired expiration date.
Are these drops effective in treating conjunctival congestion, and prevention of eye diseases?
These drops are indicated for only the conditions described. Contact your doctor if you have any other condition before using OTC eye drops.
Can these drops be used with glaucoma?
Consult with your eye care professional before use.
Can these drops be used after an ophthalmologic operation (cataracts, lasik surgery)?
Please consult with your eye care physician prior to using these drops to ensure that any scarring has healed.
Can I use these drops with intraocular lenses?
Yes. However, please consult with your eye care physician if you have just undergone the operation.
Can I use these eye drops together with other brands of eye drops?
We do not recommend combining eye drops unless you have been advised by your eye care professional.
Why is the bottle clear?
The transparency of the bottle is unique and serves a practical purpose as it allows you to see if the product has changed color or has become cloudy. It is important to discontinue use of any eye drop product that has changed color or has become cloudy.
Why is there a warning that says do not use if solution changes color or becomes cloudy?
The solution should be clear. Therefore, the labeling warns consumers to NOT use if the solution changes color - this could imply that it has been contaminated.
How long are the drops good after they are opened?
It is advisable to use the drops within 2-3 months after opening. If unopened, the product is guaranteed until the expiration date on the box.
I froze the eye drops by mistake. Can I still use them?
If they have been frozen, they are acceptable to use, after allowing the eye drops to fully come to room temperature. Check to assure the solution is clear. Do not store in the refrigerator or freezer. Store the eye drops at room temperature 68°-77°F.
Why would an athlete use this product?
Athletes can benefit from ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops because many often experience dry, irritated eyes as a result of constantly battling environmental or chemical elements, such as wind, sun, water and dust, during their training and competitions. They can also provide post-workout relief; just as you "cool down" your body after a tough workout, you can also cool down your eyes.
Why has ROHTO Cooling Eye Drops teamed up with Ironman and Iron Girl to sponsor select races across the country?
