Review: Rohto C Cube Eyedrops | My post-LASIK dry eyes remedy

It has been more than a year since I did my LASIK. In case you are wondering, I am still experiencing dry eyes. It is probably a long-term side effect. I did have symptoms of dry eyes before the surgery, so this side effect is nothing unexpected. 

Eyedrops/eye gels are essential now and finding one that works and is suitable for my eyes is important.

I have used many brands even before my LASIK surgery. Came across the brand Rohto and Rohto Eye drops Cool and is still one of my favourites (some really don’t work well!). 
Read our review on it. Having tried Rohto Cool, I have high expectations for this too. Rohto is the #1 eye care brand in Japan for the past 40 years. Today, I will give its other series a try.

Rohto C Cube Eyedrops review

C3 stands for Clear, Care, Comfort. 
Rohto C Cube Eyedrops soothe and moisturise dry, tired and irritated eyes. 


As the name suggests, it comes in a cube shape. 
Sturdy and portable. It fits easily in your pocket or bag. The shape allows this eyedrop to be carried around without the round bulge a traditional eyedrop bottle has.

Rohto C Cube Eyedrops dry eyes review

The cap twists open and snaps close tightly - preventing any possible leakages. 

Can I emphasise how much I love clear containers? I can tell how much product is left inside accurately. The product dispenses without any problem. 


Rohto C Cube Eyedrops come in a smaller bottle compared with Rohto Eye drops Cool.
Though smaller, I still did not finish the whole bottle within a month even with daily usage. 

Cooling effect

Unlike its counterpart, the cooling effect is 0. It will feel like every other eyedrop.

I prefer my eyedrop to have a more cooling effect for a stronger instant relief - and I love my Rohto Eye drops Cool for that. For people who find that too stingy, this eyedrop may be more comfortable to use.

Instant relief

This eye drop performed better than many other brands in providing relief and targeting all my needs.

First, my eyes always itch because of the dryness. Rohto C Cube Eyedrops instantly help to soothe minor irritation resulting from the lack of moisture. I would have lost my mind trying to prevent myself from rubbing them. Note that this eye drop does not contain antibiotics/anti-inflammatory properties, so it will not help to treat infection/inflammation. Consult a doctor/pharmacist should your eyes turn red/are infected.

Second, blurred vision is common for people with dry eyes. It provides some relief as it supplies moisture to my eyes. More drops may be necessary to help restore the clear vision. 

Lastly, I also face strained and tired eyes often due to long hours of screen time or the lack of sleep. This eyedrop is my saviour to keep my day going.

Expiry date

Like all eye drops, it is advisable to toss 1 month after opening.


For the price of the item, it does better than many others in providing what I needed.

Symptoms of dry eyes can be so uncomfortable and annoying and it often affects my mood for that day. If you are prone to having dry eyes; no matter from long hours of contact lens usage, prolonged use of screens, lack of sleep, or the environment, using an eye drop really helps. I would not recommend over-usage though as you would not wish to be fully reliant on them.

Rohto C Cube Eyedrops provides longer-lasting hydration but does not deliver instant relief and comfort like how Rohto Eye drops Cool did. If I have to choose, I will use Rohto Eye drops Cool when I am feeling very uncomfortable or experiencing pain from the extreme dryness. If I am only starting to have symptoms of dry and tired eyes, I would use Rohto C Cube Eyedrops. Of course, this is just my opinion and you can let me know what you think! I carry both in my bag 😝 

Perhaps I will talk about my LASIK experience someday. Till then!
