Meibomian Glands are found in both the upper and lower eye lids. Meibomian gland dysfunction occurs when the glands become blocked and the lipids are not allowed to flow freely onto the surface of the eye.
The Bruder hydrating compress features patented MediBeads that continuously absorb and store water molecules from the air. When heated in a microwave the absorbed water is then released as clean soothing moist heat. It is an easy, efficient and comfortable way to improve meibomian gland function. Simply heat, apply to eyes and relax, while the MediBeads melt the residues and fatty acids in the Meibomian glands, freeing the oils to flow onto the eye and help slow tear evaporation.
Bruder compress helps:
- replenish moisture
- refresh eyes
- reduce inflammation
- improve meibomian gland oil flow
- relieve dryness
