Would love to hear what people that have used this think of this product. Looks like it has a good rep for really helping mgd/blepharitis. Its by prescription. Thank you.

    I have tried it.  I bought it from my optometrist for $30.00.  You just spray it on your eyelashes ands rub it in.  It smells a bit like chlorox to me, but seemsm to work good.

    I just saw my optomologist and when she checked my Blepharitis she said "Your eyes are looking really good. It's quite amazing actually." 

    No oiliness, no crusty bits on my lashes, no stray lashes growing in the wrong direction, no lashes stuck together, just a little redness.

    Avenova played a large part in my treatment over this past year.

    I applied it to my lash lines morning and night by spraying on a Qtip. One for each eye to prevent cross contamination. I also took doxycycline. I followed this treatment for 3 months. I use a tiny bit of Aveeno Ecezma a cream on the skin oaround my eyes when and if they feel itchy.

    In addition to this I started using a Tea Tree Oil replenishing shampoo and a natural aloe Vera and tea tree oil body wash and I change my pillow cases very other day.

    Things were were getting better so I switched to over the counter OcuSoft PLUS wipes instead of Avenova which is expensive and a prescription. I cut the wipes into small squares and again use a Qtip to wipe along the lash lines. This gives me 4 days of treat from each packet! 

    I use Retaine eye drops as needed- they are the best! very little evaporation. Using a Qtip to apply prevents irritating the skin around my eyes and I only need Aveeno cream occasionally.

    I am so pleased with my progress and even if I am not going to be "cured" I can easily maintain this routine. I go back to dr in 6 months- who knows- maybe it will be gone for good. 

    I do think allergies are by big triggers but the OcuSoft PLUS removes pollen and bacteria so I think I have found what works for me. 

    PS: I spent. Lot of time research and trying different products until I found a combination that works for me. The info in this site has been amazing and since we are all different you have to have the patience to keep trying until you find a solution that works for you.
