Released in June 2017, Heyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser is one of the first over-the-counter hypochlorous acid sprays without bleach impurities, with comparable ingredients to Avenova. This natural, non-detergent based spray is perfect for deep cleaning the skin, which helps with soothing any skin irritation you have such as cuts, scrapes, blepharitis, styes, dry eyes, redness, swelling, burning, itching, or crustiness of the eyelid margin. This is my "go-to" product for patients in my clinic currently. It is very gentle and I have had great success with my patients.
Avenova is the first prescription, FDA-approved, non-detergent based, non-antibiotic product shown to be successful in the treatment of such common eye conditions as blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, and associated dry eye syndrome. I used this in my clinic for two years and had great results. I now use theHeyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser on this list due to it having a lower price and being over-the-counter.
Avenova's 3 Ingredients:Neutrox (pure hypochlorous acid, 0.01% as a preservative) in saline
Safe for contact with skin, eyes, and ingestion
Shelf Life: 30 days after opening

Ocusoft Lid Scrubs are a detergent based cleanser that has been used for many years to reduce redness, swelling, burning, itchiness, irritation, and crustiness on the eyelid margins. I used this before Avenova came to the market, from 2010 until 2012. With the newer products on the market, like Avenova andHeyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser, I no longer use Ocusoft products regularly.
Cliradex is a great preservative-free lid wipe that contains 4-Terpineol (T40), which is an active ingredient used to eliminate demodex mites (YES, mites in your eyelashes). It can also help with redness, swelling, burning, itchiness, and crustiness of the eyelid margin. I used this before Avenova came to the market, from 2010 until 2012. With the newer products on the market, like Avenova andHeyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser, I no longer use Cliradex products regularly. This was mostly reserved for Demodex, or eyelash mites, but I now use a more natural product,Heyedrate Tea Tree Oil.
Systane Lid Wipes help reduce redness, swelling, burning, itching, irritation, and crustiness from the eyelid margins. I used this before Avenova came to the market, from 2010 until 2012. With the newer products on the market, like Avenova andHeyedrate Lid & Lash Cleanser, I no longer use Systane wipes with my patients.
