Clinitas® Hot Eye Compress

A hot eye compress to help relax away the symptoms of...dry eye disease, MGD (Blepharitis) and chalazion (Eyelid Cysts), and the associated symptoms of grittiness, irritation and sore eyes.
Gentle heating of the eyelid margins has proven to be the most effective and gentle way of removing congealed and hardened deposits around the meibomian glands. The warmth softens the naturally produced oil helping prevent discomfort and helps maintain a healthy tear layer.

Positive research conclusions

Mori et al showed that when the researchers had patients apply a hot compress to their eyelids for 5 minutes once-a-day for 2 weeks, they had fewer symptoms associated with Dry Eye Disease and their tears did not break down so rapidly.

A comprehensive report (Nichols. K.K, 2011) observed that there is almost unanimous support among international experts and clinicians for such a process. Patients should be instructed in using hot compresses, clearing the lubricating Meibomian glands along the eyelid edge of residue build-up and cleaning the lashes.
Continued use is advised to maintain long-term control of symptoms. Lid hygiene is widely considered an effective mainstream therapy for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Anterior Blepharitis.

Good quality tears operate best when a thin layer of oil seals the eyelid to the eye, preventing excessive evaporation of the tears. This oil comes from the glands in the eyelids. A major symptom of Dry Eye Disease occurs when these oils thicken from the natural smooth oil to a buttery consistency and may result in blocked glands.


1. Heating of the eyelids externally - do this by using your Clinitas Hot Eye Compress in accordance with the instructions. This will allow the buttery oil to melt and become liquid again.

2. Cleansing of some of the melted oil from the glands by following the Eyelid Massage Procedure allowing the glands to produce healthy oil again.

3. Cleaning the base of the eyelashes – this reduces the build-up of bacteria which can be responsible for some of the symptoms.
