This past year, with so many transitioning to online school, online jobs, and Zoom calls with family friends- our eyes have worked overtime and suffered. They are staring at screens more than ever. An eye massager might just be what you need to keep your eyes relax.
Your eyes have several muscles that surround them. They make finely detailed movements all day and night. And they are often neglected and difficult to relax. You cannot use typical massage tools on them or percussion massage guns . They really need their own special tool that is gentle and relaxing.
Not only have I worked as a massage therapist in a dimly lit room for years, but I also work online when I am not in the massage room. I have seen my eye doctor previously about having “tired eyes” or “eye fatigue”. While new prescription eyeglasses have relieved much of that complaint, I am always looking for additional ways to relax my eyes at the end of the day.
NBRelax was kind enough to send me a free sample of one of their products. I choose the eye massager for all of the reasons above. It has been a tough year on my eyes too. Here is what I thought about it.
Eye Massager Review
This eye massager has the following capabilities:
- Music (also Bluetooth capable)
- Intelligent pressure or compression
How to Use and Customize
I turned on the eye massager and music that resembled what plays in my favorite Chinese restaurant began to play. Light pressure or compression followed by vibration worked from my temples medially to my nose and then back out to my temples. Soon I began to feel some gentle heat kick in and warm my eyes and sinuses. It was relaxing, but it was not perfect just yet.
My one complaint was the music that was playing. It was distracting to me and just made me hungry for crab rangoons. However, this was remedied simply by turning the volume all of the way down. More importantly, this item also has Bluetooth capabilities and you can play your favorite playlist at the end of the day. Which what I do now.
My husband did not care for the intermittent vibration element or mode. Oddly, the vibration was one of my mom’s favorite elements of the eye massager. Again, this was not an issue. You can program the unit to skip the vibration so that only the intelligent pressure and heat modes are on.
My kids enjoyed all of the modes. Like I mentioned, online school and additional screen time have affected the eyes of everyone. Under adult supervision, this tool is an easy way to soothe overworked eyes.
Again, you can customize this eye massager to make it ideal for you. It is easy to charge, store, and adjust to fit your head.
Always consult a doctor if you are having eye-related issues to rule out vision and health issues. If an eye massager is right for you, you may also find it helpful for the following common issues:
- Tired eyes
- Eye strain
- Sinus issues
All in all, I really enjoyed this product and so did my entire family. From the young to the old, it was a bigger hit than I expected it would be. My mom has requested one as her next gift.
