Fast Relief for Dry Eyes – MOIST HEAT COMPRESSES
For patients suffering from dry irritating eyes due to Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome, Blepharitis, and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, there is a treatment that provides immediate relief. The Bruder Microwave Activated Compresses deliver soothing moist heat treatment as often as needed. The reusable compresses feature MediBeads technology; they naturally and continuously absorb water molecules from the air. When microwaved they release the stored moisture in the form of clean, replenishing and soothing moist heat. After 20-30 seconds in the microwave, patients apply it to their closed eyes for 2-3 minutes. The moist heat goes to work immediately.
The heated Eye Compress helps unplug oil glands. This frees the oil in the glands to flow into the eyes and slows tear evaporation. Once the glands are unplugged, they will begin to function normally again. Follicles and oil glands that are working properly, expel bacteria and debris more efficiently.
