“For years, I blamed my tired eyes on the bright lights on set, too much screen time, the need for a new eye prescription and other things. After I learned I had dry eye, I went on a journey to find the right solution because the symptoms caused me to be distracted during important moments — on and off set,” Walsh. said “Once I found Systane, I knew I’d found an easy, on-the-go solution for my dry eye symptoms that allowed me to take charge of my day. That’s why I’m thrilled to partner with Alcon on the Make Every Look Count campaign and help launch Systane Complete Preservative-Free Lubricant Eye Drops. We hope this campaign will encourage others to find what works for their dry eye symptoms, so they can reconnect with loved ones and the experiences in life that matter most.”
