Industry studies have shown approximately 50% of dry eye patients have a mild condition and a simple five minute moist-heat compress can bring immediate relief.
The Dry Eye Relief Mask, D.E.R.M.®, is our moist-heat compress for mild dry eye. 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 5-6 minutes. We supply complimentary samples of liners with the D.E.R.M.® which can be moistened and applied to the mask prior to heating to 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.
Patients with moderate to severe dry eye require 10-20 minutes of controlled moist-heat to gain both immediate and long-term results. If you have been diagnosed with moderate to severe dry eye, we recommend using the tranquileyes® or tranquileyes xl® to ensure both immediate and long-term relief.
