NuLids – Our newest addition to dry eye treatment
Your eyes can feel irritated, dry, or itchy. The most common cause of eye discomfort is Dry Eye Disease. Whether your eyes are red, burning, watering, or you have discomfort from wearing contact lenses, there is a new natural treatment option to relieve the pain.
NuLids is a safe, at-home treatment to relieve and reduce eye discomfort. NuLids gently massages the eyelids using a soft, oscillating tip that simulates the Meibomian glands. These glands produce important lubricating oils for the eye and act as a barrier in your eye to reduce dryness.
We recommend Zocular Gel to be used with the NuLids device to clean and remove unhealthy biofilm and bacteria from the eyelids. This formula has Okra in it which is a natural cleaning agent and disinfectant to reduce the overpopulation of bacteria that can result from inflamed Meibomian glands. The combination of NuLids and Zocular has been proven to decrease Demodex mites that tend to feed off the bacteria on our eyelids.
NuLids may reduce your dependence on eye drops and warm compresses for dry eye. It only takes 1 minute/day so is a quick and efficient method of dry eye treatment. The NuLids device is compact, portable, and is about the size of an electronic toothbrush. It is not a full cure for dye eye, but the results have proven to be substantially beneficial. Statistics have shown that the device is responsible for an increase of about 80% of functioning Meibomian glands in NuLids patients. NuLids has been reported to create comfort in people when wearing contact lenses, and has been able to allow former contact lens patients to wear contacts again.
