I am an ophthalmologist. I realised that the inconvenience of using hot wet face flannels twice a day was putting a lot of people off. So I looked for a better way of creating a re-usable warm compress. I don't want to use this forum as a marketing place, but want blepharitis and dry eye people to be aware of this product. It is called The MGDRx EyeBag and is registered as a medical device with the UK Medical and Healthcare Regulatory Agency. MGDRx stands for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Therapy. It is a small handy black and silver-silk sealed bag, half filled with flaxseed. You microwave it for 30 seconds on 'high' and it stays warm for 7-10 mins. You can reuse it up to 200 times. It comes with a 14 page booklet telling you all about MGD and detailed instructions on how best to use it. The EyeBag is available from more than 80 opticians and eye clinics nationwide throughout the UK. I declare my financial interest in this product - I designed and patented it and set up the company to produce and sell it. I'm not telling any one to buy it, but I do want people to be aware that it exists. If you 'Google' the word EyeBag you can find the EyeBag website, or you can go directly to www.eyebagcompany.com. Most Opticians know about the EyeBag, GPs don't!
