At-home therapy can alleviate contact lens discomfort

| Posted on November 9, 2020
A study on the effect of using the Bruder Mask and moist heat eye compress therapy to help alleviate contact lens discomfort from home was recently highlighted in Optometry Times!

The study from University of Alabama at Birmingham, School of Optometry, discovered participants who used the Bruder Moist Heat Compress showed a higher proportion of meibum secretion versus those who used a warm washcloth– creating lasting, soothing relief from contact lens discomfort.

Although warm compress therapy may seem low-tech, it remains an effective treatment to improve secretion of meibum from the meibomian glands in patients with and without MGD, as was demonstrated in our study. As this research demonstrates, warm compress therapy is an effective, viable first step in treatment prior to contact lens refitting. Warm compresses may also reduce the contact lens dropout rate and have a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life while wearing contact lenses by increasing comfortable wear time.
