I-DEFENCE Eye Ointment

Relief of Severe Chronic Dry Eye Disease, Recurrent Corneal Erosion & Lagophthalmos.

I-DEFENCE is a long-lasting, lubricating ointment that delivers superior moisturizing and protection of the ocular surface. Containing 0.40% sodium hyaluronate, I-DEFENCE’s formulation is extremely effective at providing maximum, long-lasting relief of dry eye symptoms and is well tolerated by the patient.

The unique viscous properties of I-DEFENCE enable a prolonged contact time with the ocular surface. This hydrating ointment provides soothing relief of dry eye symptoms, such as soreness, irritation, or a gritty sensation on the eyes, and acts as a barrier against moisture loss. It can be used during surgical procedures and is ideal for patients that suffer from nocturnal lagophthalmos, recurrent corneal erosion, and CPAP users.

I-DEFENCE ointment can be used during the day or night. Upon application, the patient may experience a foreign body sensation which will pass after several blinks. If used during the day, it is recommended you do not drive a car or operate heavy machinery, as your vision may be blurry due to the thicker consistency of this ointment. It is most effective when used while sleeping, as the ointment persists on the cornea longer than does artificial teardrops.

Punctal Plugs, also known as punctal occluders or lacrimal plugs, are small, bio-compatible devices that are inserted into the tear duct to slow tear drainage. This ultimately increases the volume of tears persisting on the ocular surface, with the added moisture helping to relieve dry eyes. This procedure is widely performed, safe, and easy to apply. Our plugs are collagen-based, and slowly dissolve over a six-month period.

In treating dry eye with punctal occlusion, there is often a measured improvement achieved in tear break-up time (TBUT), reduced corneal staining and improved visual acuity due to increased tear stability. Punctal occlusion has been reported to be very effective for the treatment of dry eye in relieving symptoms while enabling patients to reduce their dependency on lubricants.

 

I-Relief Hot/Cold Compress is a soothing, natural way to relieve dry eyes and treat styes and chalazion. The hypo-allergenic heated mask improves oil gland secretion from the meibomian glands of the eyelid. Their repeated use can improve tear quantity and stability, reducing dry eye and its inflammation. Micro-beads within the mask store and release heat in an effective, clean manner to soothe dry, inflamed eyes and improve lipid tear secretion. Can also be used as a cold mask and is machine washable. Learn more about Chalazions and Dry Eye.
