cliradexTo maintain your ocular health, it’s important to eat a healthy diet and remove your contact lenses whenever possible.  But despite all of the steps you take to preserve your eye health, you still encounter irritation due to eye discharge, debris, and random ocular conditions that seem to appear out of nowhere.

Fortunately, you don’t have to run to the doctor every time you experience eye irritation as a result of debris.  Envision Eye and Laser Center in Bowie, Maryland (also serving the greater Washington DC and Prince George’s county areas) features Cliradex, a new product that’s designed to clean and refresh lashes and eyelids without chemicals or preservatives.

Renee Bovelle, M.D., wants the best for her patients – and that’s why she’s offering Cliradex at Envision Eye and Laser Center.  This unique product is made from a special variety of tea tree oil, which means that patients can use it everyday to improve overall eye and skin health without worrying about harsh chemicals and irritant preservatives.

Cliradex has resulted from years of scientific research, which focused on identifying which essential oils could promote eye health.  Cliradex was developed to effectively cleanse eyelids and surrounding skin, as well as help keep debris away from the eye areas.  This product is ideal for patients who commonly experience blepharitis, ocular rosacea, dry eye, conjunctivitis, and other ocular disorders.

So why did scientists chose to use an essential oil to make up Cliradex?  Simple: essential oils like tea tree oil has natural plant lipids that are quickly recognized and absorbed by our bodies.  For thousands of years, essential oils have been used to promote holistic health and treat various conditions like sunburn, nausea, and even stress.

To use Cliradex, Dr. Bovelle will encourage patients to wash and dry their hands before using the product.  You should remove the moist towelettes with your clean hands, and wipe over your closed eyelid in a side-to-side motion.  Be sure to avoid squinting, as this will prevent the eye from absorbing the oil.  You’ll notice a cool sensation, which means that it’s working.  Be sure to wait for Cliradex to dry.
