Moist heat therapy for Dry Eye
Studies have proven that applying moist-heat to the eyelids relieves dry eye. Temperature and duration are important to effectively loosen clogged oils which slow tear evaporation, relieving dryness. Equally important is the humidity. Increased humidity speeds heat transfer, stabilizes the tear film, slows tear evaporation and hydrates sensitive eyelid skin.
The Dry Eye Relief Mask, D.E.R.M.™, is our entry level solution for immediate dry eye relief. The mask contains Silica beads which naturally attract moisture from the air and release it when microwaved. Heating the mask for 20 seconds will provide soothing moist-heat relief for 4-6 minutes.
Applying a moistened cotton liner to the mask prior to heating will extend the treatment to 7-9 minutes.
D.E.R.M.™ is hypoallergenic and can also be used to create cold therapies for allergy relief.
