BRUDER ANNOUNCES EYELEVE CONTACT LENS COMPRESS
Bruder Healthcare announced the immediate availability of the Eyeleve Contact Lens Compress, which the company says delivers consistent, therapeutic moist heat that alleviates symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction and contact lens-related dry eye. By stimulating glands and increasing oil production, Eyeleve helps stabilize the ocular surface to reduce dryness and to extend comfortable wear time of contact lenses, according to Bruder Healthcare.
The Eyeleve Contact Lens Compress utilizes silver ion MediBeads and an anti-microbial EyeOnic fabric. Bruder says that the EyeOnic material has anti-microbial threads woven into the fabric of the compress, reducing the risk of infections. Together, these features help address eyelid hygiene and reduce the risk of corneal infection in contact lens wearers, according to the company. Finally, Eyeleve features a patent-pending ergonomic pod design and a contoured comfort stitch to reduce pressure on the eyes, according to Bruder. Call (888) 827-8337 or visit www.bruder.com . ■
