Description (by Rebecca)
A lid cleansing product from one of my favorite companies... I really enjoy the feel of this one on my lids. (My other favorite is the standard Ocusoft foam.) For some reason I have found my lids easily get irritated by some of the other products with tea tree oil but this one seems to have just the right balance for me.

Tea Tree Eyelid & Facial Cleanser is used 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 which specific product they recommend. There are many products available, most over the counter but some by prescription only.
Squeeze one pump into moistened palm. Lather and gently wash face and eyelid area. Rinse well with warm water.
