Reasons to Consider a Single Eye Mask

Moist heat compress therapy offers countless benefits. Indeed, a wealth of research shows that it is an excellent treatment for dry eye, contact lens discomfort, styes, and more.

Although treating both eyes is ideal for overall wellness, sometimes covering both eyes at the same time is neither practical nor necessary. For example, an otherwise healthy individual who develops a stye does not necessarily need to treat both eyes—although such preventative measures couldn’t hurt. Also, young children may struggle with covering both eyes at once. Similarly, busy parents and professionals often want to multi-task, which can be difficult if you can’t see. In such cases, the Bruder Moist Heat Single Eye Compress may be just what the doctor ordered.

Bruder Moist Heat Single Eye Compress

Like the traditional dual-eye mask, the Bruder reusable single eye therapy warming compress provides relief from painful eye irritation and common lid conditions including styes, chalazion, dry eyes, blepharitis and other conditions. 

All you need to do is microwave the mask for 15-20 seconds and apply it over your closed eye for 8 to 10 minutes. This therapy will provide soothing moist heat to relieve painful symptoms such as burning, itching and stinging, while promoting ocular wellness and a healthy tear film.

Stye Therapy Benefits

A stye is an eyelid infection that causes an uncomfortable red bump. Styes can be external (at the base of your eyelashes) or internal (within your eyelid glands) and occur in patients of all ages. They develop when the small glands that line the eyelid get plugged. Other risk factors include touching your eyes with unwashed hands, leaving makeup on overnight, using cosmetics after their use-by dates, poor contact lens hygiene and more.

A single eye moist heat compress is especially helpful when you have a stye because the moist heat helps draw out stye contents and other lid congestion issues. This can help open up the glands and drain the stye more quickly. It can also ease the pain and speed healing. Simply place the warmed compress on the affected eye for 8-10 minutes a few times per day or as directed by your eye care professional.

Convenience Benefits

The only thing that’s inconvenient about a single-eye versus a dual eye compress is that treatment will take twice as long if you administer therapy to both eyes. In the case of stye treatment, dual eye therapy may not be needed, but if you have another condition or simply want to reap the extensive benefits of ocular hygiene and wellness you may want to consider the original two-eye Bruder Moist Heat Compress.

But if lifestyle or age makes covering both eyes difficult, the single eye mask features the exact same high-quality MediBeads technology to ensure treatment efficacy. With one eye uncovered you can continue to go about your daily activities, watch TV, or use the computer. Kids and gamers also appreciate single-eye treatment.

When it comes to taking care your eyes, Bruder has flexible solutions to meet the individual needs of diverse health and lifestyle needs.
