Eyelid hygiene is the first step in dry eye treatment and the foundation of overall eye health & wellness. Our RestTM self heating warm compresses complement RiseTM eyelid wipes, and deliver a convenient and effective eyelid hygiene routine. Dry eye disease (DED) can be frustrating and confusing, but the treatment doesn’t have to be. This is why we kept the patient experience front-and-center when handcrafting our eyelid hygiene products. Our RestTM warm compress, RiseTM eyelid wipes and Rescue hydrogel masks provide an experience unlike anything else.
Our RestTM box comes with 30 individually packaged warm compress eye masks, enough for daily use for a month. Since RestTM is intended for the evening, we designed the product to help you relax and ease into your bedtime routine. Our box, individual sachets and the actual warm compress eye masks use a mellow color to provide a calm and tranquil experience. We use a matte finish on our packaging and a smooth medical-grade fabric on our eye masks to maximize comfort and minimize stimulation, which is essential as you wind down from the day.
RestTM self heating warm compresses have four simple ingredients that provide gentle, persistent and therapeutic heat to help you decompress, rebuild and recoup overnight. Finally, RestTM self-heats as soon as you put it on, which avoids the hassle of having to leave your bedroom to microwave a conventional warm compress.
RiseTM eyelid wipes, RestTM warm compresses and Rescue hydrogel masks provide a complete eyelid hygiene routine that’s convenient, clean and effective.
Dry eye disease (DED) is also known as dry eye syndrome, keratoconjunctivitis sicca and ocular surface disease.1 The classic dry eye symptoms are blurry vision, light sensitivity, itchy eyes, eye strain, watery eyes, stinging or burning, gritty sensation and eye pain.
Dry eye causes can be broken down into two main categories: aqueous deficient and evaporative. With aqueous deficient DED, your lacrimal glands don’t produce enough natural tears to lubricate the ocular surface (the cornea and conjunctiva). With evaporative DED, your body makes enough tears, but they undergo rapid evaporation. However, most patients typically have a combination of both aqueous deficient and evaporative, leading to tear film dysfunction.
Dry eye treatment options include eye drops (artificial tears) and eyelid hygiene (warm compress and eyelid wipes). In addition to this, a treatment plan should also address nutrition (your diet), the environment and your lifestyle (work and social life). What is good for the eyes, should also benefit the mind and body.
Eyelid hygiene is the first step in dry eye treatment, and without a good eyelid hygiene routine, other treatments aren’t as effective.2 Even if you don’t have dry eyes, eyelid hygiene is an excellent way to start taking care of your eyes, and preserving your eyesight.
Eyelid hygiene includes warm compresses and eyelid wipes. Eyelid hygiene helps treat meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and eyelid inflammation (blepharitis), the most common causes of dry eyes. Taking care of your eyelids is the first step towards dry eye relief.
Meibomian glands are located at your eyelid margin, and secrete oil which forms the lipid layer of your tear film and helps stabilize it. The mucin layer (from goblet cells) and aqueous layer (from the lacrimal gland) both sit under the lipid layer’s protection.
Meibomian glands can sometimes stop oil secretion, which leads to an unstable tear film that evaporates too quickly (think evaporative DED). The oil can also build up in the oil glands or on the eyelid margin, leading to styes (chalazion) and inflammation of the eyelids, known as posterior blepharitis. Anterior blepharitis, on the other hand, is caused by bacterial infections, mites (Demodex), and less commonly, by allergens and contact lens irritation. The classic symptoms of blepharitis include eyelash crusting, flaking or caking, eyelid redness and swelling, and itchy, irritated eyes. Chronic blepharitis can cause recurring conjunctivitis (pink eye or red eye), and corneal damage.
MGD and blepharitis treatment start with eyelid hygiene (warm eye compresses and eyelid wipes). The warm compress improves meibomian gland function, and promotes oil secretion. The eyelid wipes clear any debris from backed-up oil, fend off inflammation, and may have antimicrobial properties. Eyelid hygiene protects you from the vicious cycle of MGD <–> blepharitis, while reducing inflammation, redness and puffiness, which leads to healthy eyelids and vibrant eyes.
A good eyelid hygiene regimen with warm compresses and eyelid wipes works in the majority of cases if used consistently. If these don’t work, your eye doctor may consider adding oral supplements (Omega 3 fatty acids), antibiotic ointment with steroids and oral antibiotics.
We developed our RestTM warm compresses and RiseTM eyelid wipes to not only treat MGD and blepharitis, but also to help you prioritize your eyecare. If you already have an eyelid hygiene routine, use our wipes and warm compresses to take your dry eye treatment to the next level. If you’re looking to take the first step in protecting your eyes and preserving your eyesight, then start with our warm compresses. Your eyes deserve it and need it!
Not all warm compresses are created alike. If not used properly, a warm compress won’t work, and may actually be harmful. Safety is our foremost concern, and using anything in and around your eyes should always be done with great care and hygiene.
Most individuals have used hot compresses for non-eye conditions, such as muscle spasms, sinus congestion, sore muscles, ankle sprains, menstrual cramps and back pain. Heat therapy can be a good way to relieve pain and promote healing by increasing blood flow to the affected area. However, the skin and muscles at these non-ocular locations are much thicker than the skin and muscles around the eyes. For instance, using a heating pad, heat packs or hot packs and a hot water bottle may work for your back, but may be too coarse and hot for your eyes and eyelids.
For the eyes and eyelids, using softer materials and less intense, but prolonged moist heat is ideal. For a home remedy, you make a warm compress at home by using uncooked rice and a tennis sock, but this typically delivers dry heat. You can also soak a clean washcloth in warm water, but this only provides moist heat for a few minutes before needing more warm water.3 Alternatively, you can buy a pre-made reusable warm compress from your local drug store or online.
The currently available methods for doing a warm compress are either not suitable for the eyes, require too much labor, need a microwave or warm water, and may not be hygienic. Using the same warm compress for your abdomen is likely not safe for your eyes. Making a warm compress at home requires additional supplies, time and effort, which could be tedious and tiring at the end of the day. Lastly, using a reusable pre-made warm compress mask can build up debris and other pathogenic materials.
For these reasons and more, we made RestTM to be convenient and hygienic. Just simply open one of our individual sachets, put the mask on your eyes, and let it work its self heating magic. After use, simply discard. No microwave, no hassle, no germs, just relief!
A cold compress can also be helpful for the eyes, especially during an acute worsening of dry eye symptoms, aka flare-up.4 In these instances, a warm compress may be uncomfortable, and a cold compress may provide immediate pain relief. Similarly to warm compresses for non-ocular locations, the current ways of doing a cold compress aren’t ideal for the eyes. For example, ice packs or cold packs in a plastic bag and cold water on a washcloth may be suitable first-aid for your ankle sprain, but not for the eyes. Using a gentler material and a less intense, but long-lasting cold therapy is key. Check out our Rescue hydrogel masks for convenient and clean cold compresses.
