How to Use Eye-PressInstructions:
It is highly recommended that you start using this product when you first notice your symptoms and visit your eye-care professional as soon as possible: For Sties (Chalazia): use the eye-press® every 2-3 hours for up to a week or until symptoms resolve. Take special care with small children as they may not stay still. For Blepharitis and Dry eyes: use as many as three times daily. For eyelid hygiene prior to surgery/injection: start using product twice daily, at least 2 days prior your scheduled procedure. For all other conditions: Consult with your eyecare professional, but it is safe to use product two-three times daily until symptoms improve/resolve. Directions of use 1) Take the compress out of the clear plastic bag, and moisten the white pad with clean (tap) water. 2) Hold the metal disk between your thumbs and your forefingers (use both hands), and bend the disk back and forth numerous times until you hear the disk click and see the blue liquid start to crystallize (turns white). 3) Grab the product by the clear handle between your thumb and forefinger (use one hand) and gently massage the product over your closed eyelid until the product cools down. Product stays warm for up to four minutes.
Re-Use Instructions: Place the used eye-presses in a bowl of boiling water for about 3:30 minutes. You will notice the crystallized (white) liquid (inside the bag) turn blue again. Once completely clear, place the eye-presses on a clean dry place until the product cools down to room temperature. Be very careful not to spill the hot water or burn your hands (use tongs or a long fork). Before reusing, moisten the pad with a few drops of baby shampoo and tap water and bend the disk back and forth until you see the blue liquid start to crystallize again. Do NOT microwave. Do NOT reuse the product if you have an eye infection. Do NOT reuse product if the bag is broken and leaking. In case of a leak, simply rinse your eye/s with clear tap water; the contents inside the bag cannot harm your eye/cornea. You may safely use the product up to 10 times.
