    Hey Jake.

    I don't know if it's a scam but the Wet ones haven't worked for me, so it's definitely not a cure. Still looking for something to helo me with my blepharitis.

    jake I see that your condition is frustrating you. I can relate because I am suffering from the same thing, However think about what you're saying here. Do you really think a company would promote Wet Ones here just so they can sell say about 50 more? Or even a 100. It's ridiculous. Wet ones as a company wouldn't have the audacity to promote something to use near the eyes where the packaging clearly says it should not be used there. Not for a few hundred dollars.

    Benzalkonium chloride is a well known antiseptic. Wet Ones work for people who are not allergic to them and who have staphylococcous blepharitis which is not complicated with a secondary dry eye. You can be allergic to benzalkonium chloride directly or to other ingredients in the wipes. I'm allergic to both. BZK is a perservative. If you're allergic to it you're inflammation gets worse resulting in drier eyes resulting in more bacteria.

    You could also have seborrheic blepharitis or demodex blepharitis which is another reason why wet ones would not work. If you're in the US you can try Avenova. It's a new product from Novabay containing 0.01% hypochlorous acid which kills 99.99% of bacteria in less then a minute. There's a lot of hype going on about it.

    I agree that Wet Ones should not be used. Every type states on the pack not to use on the eyes and if contact with the eyes is made to rinse thoroughly with water. The  warning is there for a good reason.
