How it Works

1. The Problems

Why patients needed a better eye compress

Dirty Washcloth eye compress

Heat Loss and Poor Hygiene

Wet washcloths lose their heat too quickly. Daily contact with re-used materials may increase the risk of microbial contamination.

Heat Mask eye compress poor ocular fit

Poor Ocular Fit

Basic heat mask design leads to inefficiency and discomfort. Head straps pull the mask forcibly against the eyes.

Dry Heat Mask eye compress

Lack of Moisture

Dry heat masks do not provide the moisture needed for moist heat therapy.
