Eyelid Care

Daily eyelid care is a must for people with blepharitis or meibomian gland dysfunction. Daily eyelid care is also an excellent preventive treatment, helping to maintain healthy meibomian glands. These glands secrete oil into the tear film, to keep it from evaporating too quickly.

What does eyelid care consist of? An excellent 10-minute ‘bedtime routine’ would include:

  1. Warm compress for 5-10 minutes (careful not to make it too hot)
  2. Gently massaging the lid margins to help express oils.
  3. Cleansing the lid margins with a gentle cleanser.
