Dry Eye

New Tool to Treat Dry Eye, Styes & Chalazion

I would like to discuss our new HYDRATING COMPRESS – a convenient, natural way to relieve dry eye, styes, chalazions and blepharitis. Simply microwave the special microbead-containing compress for about 30 seconds, then apply to closed eyes for 10 minutes. The moist heat released from the compress helps unplug oil glands and follicles. This frees the oil in the glands to move onto the eyes, thereby reducing tear evaporation. There is no water, no waiting
