You likely instruct your patients with dry eye disease or meibomian gland dysfunction to clean their eyelids regularly at home to help minimize discomfort and control symptoms. But, as always, compliance is an issue. A new brush and cleanser system from Danelli Ocular Creations aims to help more blepharitis and dry eye patients stay on top of their lid hygiene between office visits. The company says that its first products, an eyelid brush and cleansing gel, are easy to use and suitable for those with sensitive skin.
The cleansing brush is made from silicone and features a contoured design, making it easier to grip and maneuver, Danelli suggests. The tapered bristles help remove lid margin scurf and lash collarettes associated with blepharitis, a company press release explains. The brushes will come in a package of four and are made to be replaced quarterly.
The cleansing gel features organic ingredients (e.g., manuka honey, coconut oil, aloe vera, sea salt) with anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties, the press release states. The solution goes onto the brush as a gel but forms into a foam once massaged onto the eyelid. Clinical trials for this new system are ongoing.
