Ocular Hygiene

What Is Meibomian Gland Disease (MGD) and How Can Our Ocular Hygiene Products Help Your Patients Who Suffer From It?

Meibomian gland disease is a result of a blockage or some other abnormality of the Meibomian glands in the eyelid. When these glands don’t secrete enough oil onto the surface of the eye, the tears evaporate too quickly, causing dry eyes. MGD is a leading cause of dry eye syndrome and can often contribute to blepharitis, an inflammation of the eyelid.

Adding a daily hygiene regimen to an existing treatment plan using lubricating eye drops helps break the dry eye cycle while enhancing the effectiveness of artificial tears (I-DROP®), and aids in the restoration of corneal health.

What Are The Benefits Of Our I-LID ’N LASH® Ocular Hygiene Line?

The ingredients in cleansers can impact your patients’ overall eye health.  Our uniquely formulated cleanser containing sodium hyaluronate is effective, yet gentle on the eyes. Used daily, I-LID ’N LASH® yields the following benefits.

  • Cleans and disinfects eyelids and lashes by removing ocular debris
  • Reduces extra-ocular inflammation
  • Improves the effectiveness of artificial tears
  • Aids in the treatment of blepharitis symptoms
  • Soothing ingredients do not burn or irritate sensitive skin
  • Can be used to remove makeup

How Does Tea Tree Oil (TTO) Help With Ocular Hygiene?

Tea tree oil is an essential oil derived mainly from Melaleuca Alternifolia. Employed for its powerful antiseptic, cleansing and hydrating properties, TTO is a safe and effective ingredient. Its natural skin-sanitizing benefits cleanse away dirt, bacteria and toxins, leaving the skin feeling healthier and more hydrated. Both our I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS and our I-LID ’N LASH® PRO contain tea tree oil and have therapeutic effects for ocular surface discomfort for patients with symptoms associated with Blepharitis, MGD, Rosacea and Demodex.
