About Systane Lid Wipes

  • Useful for eyelid hygiene and makeup removal
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Box contains 30 individually wrapped pre-moistened wipes

Description (by Rebecca)

Systane Lid Wipes are one of many products used simply for maintaining good eyelid hygiene. 

One of the most common causes of dry eye is blepharitis/meibomian gland dysfunction, where chronic inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids results in a poor quality tear film that evaporates too fast due to lack of oil in the tear film. Keeping the eyelids clean and free of debris helps maintain healthy meibomian glands. Consult your doctor about whether you can benefit from a lid hygiene product and if so whether there is a specific product they recommend. There are many products available, most over the counter but some by prescription only.

I would consider this product roughly comparable to Ocusoft standard formula lid scrubs. Personally I find the Systane ones wetter, and with a gentler paper, but that's just me.
