Did you know?
Artificial Eye users who experiences continuous discharge may find it beneficial to regularly clean their eyelids and Eyelashes
What is the Eyelid?
Problems that may occur
There are instances that our Eyelids may become inflamed(Blepharitis) or that our Meibomian Glands gets inflamed as well, causing our Eyelid to become Red and Swollen, sometimes even painful.
It may be caused by many things:
What to do incase of Eyelid infection?
If you find that your Eyelid is already swollen, please do visit your Doctor to have it examined, as long term inflammation of the Eyelid may cause permanent damages to the Eyelids and the Eye Socket itself.
Why Do we need to Clean our Eyelids?
Once medication have started, cleaning your Eyelids and Eyelashes can be a good idea.
Done before the application of the medicines the your Doctor gave you, it can help prevent further infection of the eyelid.
This can also be done even without infection present, especially if you are a heavy makeup user, where you often apply some in your Eyelids/Eyelashes.
This is also important for Artificial Eye Users who experiences heavy mucus discharge, where the discharge reoccurs a few minutes after wiping their Eyelids.
How to Clean you Eyelids/Eyelashes
Things you will need:
As indicated above, the Warm water should be able to soften any dried up Oil and Mucus which could cause more problem in the future if it were to clog the Meibomian Gland opening, which could lead to infection.
The Baby Shampoo is a good cleaning agent, but if you are able to get a hold of a Blephagel, it is a very good alternative as it's formulated for people with blepharitis(Inflammation of the Eyelid).
