How To Treat MGD vs Treating Blepharitis

MGD Treatment VS.  Blepharitis

What is the difference for treatment of dry eyes caused by MGD or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction versus Blepharitis? What should we most focus on for these 2 types?

Basically, to treat your Blepharitis we say use the Eye Love spray that we have or another Hypochlorous acid eyelid cleanser such as Avenova would be another example. Our Heyedrate Eyelid Sprayis great for Blepharitis because it really cleans that bacteria off of those eyelashes. Then, with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction you are going to be more focused on heat, omega-3s, and using a warm compress. Sometimes people will do IPL, and Miboflow, which are basically fancy warm compresses. That's basically the difference, but you are going to do all of it truthfully.

Watch Jenna's nightly routine and that is what you should be doing. We say start with your warm compress, then after your warm compress do your Meibomian gland expression, clean with Tea Tree Oil soap, after that use the Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser, then of course take the Omega-3's. The goal is to take a more natural approach to it, use less chemicals, fight the cause and take care of it. I'm sure you guys are sick of us saying that but it's our idea of the best approach.

We are actually doing our food section this week. I know I said I was going to do it last week but life got in the way. We volunteered at a free clinic and we got to do some other things and before we knew it, the week got away from us really quickly. I have been sick. She's been sick. That's life though. 

One Love,

Hey Christine – Sorry for the confusion! Our new masks do not require removal of the insert! Unfortunately, the old directions got put with the new masks! You just put the whole mask in the microwave to heat.
one love.

Hi-I ordered the lid and lash cleaner as well as the Heyedraye Mask. The directions for the mask say to remove the flaxseed insert from the silk cover before microwaving. There is no way to do this. Every side of the mask is sewn closed. Can you give me some advice. Thank you
