SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser is used as a daily eyelid cleanser and in the treatment of blepharitis.
While daily lid hygiene is important for everyone, and especially important for patients with these conditions, patients have had to make do with diluted mixtures of baby shampoo or soap-pads designed to remove eye makeup.
Linalool, a key ingredient in SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser, is a naturally-occurring liquid distilled from plant oils with wide use in personal care products based on its pleasant floral scent. It is found in many flowers and spice plants, as well as in tea tree oil. Linalool has been formulated into SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser to create a “gentle-on-the-eye” eyelid cleanser that cleanses yet, with its pH-matched-to-skin formula, helps maintain the skin oils that have antibacterial properties, and provide the skin with a natural defense.
Pumped onto and then applied directly with clean fingertips, SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser conditions the delicate eyelid skin while providing effective lid hygiene with comfort and convenience.
Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids caused by increased bacteria on the eyelid margins and eyelashes. Doctors generally recommend you use SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser twice daily.
Blepharitis can lead to dry eye symptoms including stinging, burning and grittiness.
Before eye surgery
In the operating room immediately before surgery, doctors take special care to clean and disinfect the eyelids and adjacent skin to help avoid infections after surgery. Now you can prepare your eye for this process by starting SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser in the days leading up to eye surgery. Doctors generally recommend you start using SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser twice a day 3 days before surgery, and leave it in place for 60 seconds for maximum effectiveness.
