June 29, 2016- Orchard Park, NY –Summer is here, and that brings with it a unique set of eye issues:  The red, irritated eye after a long swim; the itchy eye after a mid-day hike; even the dry eye from your home’s air conditioning.  All of these can make the warm weather months a less than eye-opening experience.  Rohto® Ice All-in-One Cooling Eye Drops have the right formula to tackle any of these problems and keep your eyes looking and feeling good all summer long.
