• Eye-Press Your At-Home Dry Eye Helper

    || 10-15-2015

    Warm eye compresses have been used for generations to relieve discomfort from various eye conditions. Throughout the years, these methods have typically consisted of a warm towel, hot tea bag, warmed up potato or egg, hot spoons or a microwave-heated eye mask. All of which are often inconvenient, sometimes unhygienic and potentially harmful to your eyes. Now for the first time, there is a convenient, reusable and safe option to help relieve and treat common eye conditions created by Dr. Soroudi called Eye-Press. We spoke to Dr. Soroudi to learn more about the product.


    Q: What is Eye-Press?

    Dr. Soroudi: Eye-Press is a self-heating, reusable warm eye compress that has been specifically designed for use on the eyes. A chemical reactor provides steady heat to the eyelids at a set temperature that will not harm the delicate eyelid skin. A soft, lint-free, medical-grade wipe material is pre-moistened with a hypo-allergenic baby shampoo and lavender extract that cleans the eyelids and soothes irritated eyes.

    It is also equipped with a patented butterfly handle that makes it easier to massage the affected eyelid(s) with the product to gently wash off the bacteria residing on the eyelashes and help unclog the oily eyelid pores and help relieve symptoms from common eye conditions. Each Eye-Press can be reused up to 10 times, with 100 applications in each Eye-Press package.

    Q: How do you use the Eye-Press?

    Dr. Soroudi: To activate the Eye-Press, you’ll need to take the following steps prior to using the compress on your eyes.

    1. Take an individual Eye-Press out of its plastic cover and moisten the white pad with regular tap water.
    2. Massage the baby shampoo with your fingers and you’ll see the pre-moistened pad start to foam.
    3. Grab the metal disc inside the compress between the thumbs and forefingers of both of your hands and bend the disc back and forth numerous times until you see the blue liquid start to crystallize and turn white. You’ll feel the compress turn warm immediately.
    4. Open and grab the clear plastic butterfly handle and massage the wet fabric over your closed eye until it cools down.

    The Eye-Press will stay warm for about 4 minutes and you should feel immediate relief from your symptoms.
