    About OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Foaming Eyelid Cleanser

    • Gently, silky foam cleanser

    Description (by Rebecca)

    This is my personal favorite lid scrub product. An oldie but a goodie. It's very gentle and silky on my lids. I use it in the shower. For those who want something less messy or that they can use anytime, the individually wrapped pads of the same type of scrub (see link below) will be much more convenient. 

    If you've got active blepharitis this may not be adequate; you may need an antibacterial of some sort. Talk to your doctor, because there are a lot of lidscrub products on the market at this point, some Rx only, and we have many other "extra strength" or tea tree oil infused ones available OTC here in the shop. But for basic maintenance, this one is hard to beat. (Incidentally if you've been using baby shampoo unsuccessfully for a long time, it's time to move on to something more sophisticated. Baby shampoo can be very irritating when you have dry eye.)

    Label information

    What is OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Foaming Eyelid Cleanser used for?

    OCuSoft Lid Scrub foam 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.

    Instructions for use

    For external use only. Wash hands and remove contact lenses prior to use. 
    1. Pump desired amount of foam onto a clean, lint-free cloth, pad or fingertip. 
    2. Close eye and gently cleanse lid using side-to-side strokes. Do not touch eye directly. 
    3. Rise thoroughly. Repeat for the other lid.

    Problem with the large bottle

    I used to buy the 7.2 fluid oz large size, and it would last forever. But there was a problem with the plunger on the last 2 bottles I bought. It would push down, but not come back up automatically. I would have to manually pull it up in order to get another push. So if I needed 3 pushes, it was a hassle - holding the base still with one hand while pulling up the plunger with the same hand (and pumping into the other palm). Very inconvenient! Now I only buy the small travel size, which works just fine.

    So sorry to hear this, Rae! We're forwarding your comments to the manufacturer. If this happens again, please let us know!

    We actually have advice from the manufacturer of a similar product, which may help fix your problem with the pump:

    "We have found that sometimes during transit the pump can get clogged. We don't typically see defective pumps, mostly just issues with clogging.

    Fix: Unscrew top and tap on counter to get out any air bubbles or clogs and screw it back on. This typically resolves the issue."
