Effective Dry Eye Products Designed to Help Patients Manage Discomforting Symptoms
Dry eye conditions affect over 340 million people worldwide, causing intermittent or chronic redness, irritation, tearing, fatigue, and other discomforting eye symptoms. While over-the-counter products for dry eye exist, they may not provide the symptom relief that many patients seek to improve eye comfort and regain their quality of life. After accurate diagnosis and evaluation of dry eye conditions, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other eye care professionals can rely on I-MED Pharma USA for dry eye management options designed to provide relief for mild to severe, intermittent, and chronic dry eye conditions.
I-MED Pharma is a global leader in dry eye management, offering a vast array of dry eye products available to help alleviate your patients’ dry eyes. Depending on the severity and frequency of symptoms that patients are experiencing, ophthalmologists and optometrists can choose the most suitable management option for the ocular health of their patients.
Implementing an ocular hygiene routine is essential for patients experiencing eye irritation, dryness, discomfort, or other dry eye symptoms. Proper cleansing of the eyelids and eyelashes is key. The purpose of the lids and lashes is to trap debris, toxins, and other particles, and prevent these foreign bodies from getting onto the ocular surface. If they aren’t properly cleaned and cared for, this can lead to an increase in dry eye symptoms or to other problematic conditions like Demodex mite infestations.
I-MED Pharma USA’s I-LID ‘N LASH® line of ocular hygiene products is routinely recommended by optometrists and ophthalmologists for patients suffering from dry eye or Meibomian Gland Disease (MGD), as well as for those interested in enhancing their daily ocular hygiene routine. For patients requiring deeper cleansing, there is a formulation that contains 5% tea tree oil (TTO).
I-LID ’N LASH®
I-LID ’N LASH® is a paraben-free eye hygiene product that effectively cleans and hydrates both the eyelashes and eyelids. Available in a jar of 60 pre-soaked wipes, I-LID ‘N LASH® is easy-to-use and effective at removing ocular debris and makeup.
I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS
Adding I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS to an ocular hygiene routine helps clean eyelids and lashes more effectively while increasing the effectiveness of hydrating artificial tears. I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS can be used by patients requiring deeper cleansing as it contains 5% tea tree oil (TTO).
I-LID ’N LASH® HOCL
Used daily, and in combination with I-LID ’N LASH® wipes or pump, I-LID ’N LASH® HOCL CLEANSING SPRAY cleans and hydrates the eyes to maintain optimal lid and lash health. Spray and Go! No need to rinse off!
Dry Eye Ointment
Eye ointments are an effective remedy against dry eyes. They help stimulate and stabilize the lacrimal fluid and support the lubrication of the cornea and conjunctiva. While artificial tears are recommended for dry eye relief throughout the day, eye ointments can be used in conjunction with, or as an alternative to artificial tears. Eye ointments are applied directly to the conjunctival sac. Dry eye gels and ointments tend to stay in the eyes longer, so they’re recommended for overnight use.
I-MED Pharma USA offers an effective, long-lasting dry eye ointment that delivers superior moisturizing and protection of the ocular surface to provide soothing relief of dry eye symptoms, such as soreness, irritation, or a gritty sensation on the eyes and acts as a barrier against moisture loss.
Patients looking for relief from symptoms of severe dry eye disease may benefit from I-DEFENSE®. This long-lasting, lubricating night-time dry eye ointment contains lanolin and mineral oil and is extremely effective at providing maximum, long-lasting relief of dry eye symptoms.
Nutrition plays a big role in your health, including your vision. Consuming foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, namely, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is essential to ocular health. However, most patients are not getting the recommended daily amount of these essential nutrients from diet alone. Certain nutrition deficiencies can lead to dry eye disease as well as other eye conditions such as macular degeneration and vision loss. To supplement a patient’s diet that is lacking in Omega-3 fatty acids, eye care professionals can recommend a nutritional vitamin to balance out what is missing.
It is important to note that not all Omega-3 supplements are created equally. I-MED Pharma USA’s nutritional supplements are formulated to provide the most important fatty acids (EPA, DHA & DPA) in the re-esterified triglyceride form (rTG) form which means that they don’t contain toxins or alcohol.
I-VU® OMEGA-3 PLUS
I-VU® OMEGA-3 PLUS is a highly purified and concentrated Omega-3 supplement that addresses a patient’s dry eye symptoms systematically as opposed to topically. This supplement for dry eyes is formulated to not only provide dry eye relief and improve symptoms, but to support proper tear function in adults as well.
Eye care professionals often recommend moist heat therapy as a form of supplementary treatment for people suffering from dry eyes and other conditions of the eyelid. Hot or cold compresses can provide immediate relief from dry eye discomfort, and consistent use over time can help increase blood circulation, stimulate lipid oil production, and reduce tear evaporation, thereby improving overall ocular health.
I-MED Pharma USA offers a unique dry eye relief mask that is designed to alleviate symptoms associated with blepharitis, dry eye disease, meibomian gland disease (MGD), styes and chalazia, as well as headaches, sinus pressure, tension, swelling and puffiness.
