Based on clinical trials, it is more effective to alleviate dry eye complaints by cleaning the area around the edges of the eyelids with a special wipe developed for the care of eyelids.
In the case of severe eyelid inflammation, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory treatment may be required temporarily. However, effective treatment and long-term success is crucially dependent on maintaining adequate eyelid hygiene.
OCUVANE® eyelid wipes to treat dry eye complaints
In a clinical study in which all patients developed dry eye complaints at baseline, 35% of patients
had complete resolution of dry eye complaints after 1 month of treatment. After one-daily treatment
for 1 month, 98% of patients reported a clinically significant improvement after treatment,
rate of improvement increasing in proportion to the severity of the disease. The
results showed that
the stability of the tear film was significantly improved after 1 month of treatment. In addition,
dirt and mucus deposited on the eyelids, eyelid inflammation, Demodex infection, and redness of the
eye were significantly reduced. After 1 month of treatment, ⅔ of the patients showed significant
improvement in at least 3 of the studied parameters. The method of treatment was rated as good by
75% of patients and effectiveness of treatment by 75% as very good.
At the end of the study, all patients, without exception, reported that their eyes felt fresher than before, both during the day and during computer screen use.
OCUVANE® eyelid wipes to reduce bacterial infection
In a clinical study, a single wipe of the eyelids with OCUVANE® eyelid wipes significantly reduced the number of pathogens (colony forming unit – CFU) living on the conjunctiva.
In clinical studies, there were no side effects reported by patients during, or immediately after the application of the treatment. At the end of the study there were no reported complaints associated with the treatment.
