Keep Your Eyelids Clean
In my clinic, we try to use natural, non-antibiotic treatment choices before prescribing an antibiotic, although we see many doctors prescribing antibiotics for this condition. Blepharitis treatment must be done daily in order to reduce symptoms, which is why we recommend making eyelid hygiene a part of your daily routine!
The first eyelid hygiene product that we recommend is a hypochlorous acid eyelid cleanser. The first to the market was prescription strength Avenova, which we used in our clinic for a few years with great success. This is prescription only, which makes it more expensive and harder for patients to purchase.
Over-the-counter Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser was released in June 2017 and we switched all our patients over to this due to the effectiveness of it, as well as the affordability and the ease of being able to purchase it online. Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser is manufactured from fully organic materials to fight bacteria on your skin.
Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser also offers easy application. Simply clean the eyelids of any debris or makeup and spray it onto your closed eyelids. Then gently rub the sprayed cleanser into the upper and lower eyelid and eyelash margin. Simply let it dry after that.
Repeat this same procedure in the morning and evening for a couple of days and you’ll start seeing changes. We recommend you begin using this cleanser every time you brush your teeth!
