The EyeBag is a silk and suedex device which can be re-heated up to 200 times in a microwave. Simply heat for 30 or 40 seconds on full power and the EyeBag will stay warm for up to 10 minutes.
Conditions which usually benefit from regular twice daily EyeBag treatment are:
- Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)
- Dry Eye Syndrome
- Eyelid Cysts (Meibomian cysts know as chalazion, pronounced Ka-lazy-on)
- Contact Lens Dry Eye
- Corneal Laser Dry Eye
- Seborrhoeic dermatitis
Symptoms which are relieved by EyeBag treatment are:
- Bleary Vision
- Burning Discomfort
- Foreign body sensation (feels like there’s something in the eye)
- Dry eye
- Eye irritation
Eyelid warming using the EyeBag is often used at the same time as artificial tears and dry eye gels and ointments. If you are a contact lens wearer you should discuss your situation with your contact lens practitioner who will advise you how best to use your EyeBag.
