PRLog - Oct. 1, 2008 - TEMECULA, Calif. -- Painful, unsightly and downright annoying, millions of people suffer from the discomfort of styes. Believed to be as common as acne, styes develop when a gland at the edge of the eyelid becomes infected. They look much like pimples and cause swelling, redness, and tenderness.
New Stye Care Kit from Eye Eco, Inc.
Typical treatment calls for applying warm compresses throughout the day, but compliance is often an issue. How many people can afford to take time out of their busy lives to cover their eyes and become immobilized for 15-minute intervals?
Eye Eco, Inc, makers of the popular tranquileyes eye hydrating goggles, has launched a revolutionary solution. Their new Stye Care Kit provides patients with an easy, hands-free, effective method for applying warm compress treatments while still going about their business.
The stye patch generates approximately 100 degrees of moist heat for 10-15 minute treatments, and since the patch covers only one eye at a time, patients can continue normal activities such as computer work, reading, or watching TV while wearing the compress.
Utilizing the instant, reusable technology of thermoeyes, patients have access to instant heat wherever they are. Thermoeyes are gel packs with small, stainless steel disks enclosed inside. Simply snap the disk to activate heat, then tuck it on top of a moistened cushion, insert in the eye-cup, and secure to the affected eye with the head strap. The moist heat helps draw the stye out while providing relief from symptoms.
For only $29 retail, patients receive everything they need for more than 120 warm compress treatments, including foam padded eye-cup with strap, two reusable heat packs, foam insert for adding moisture and wash bag. Stye Care Kits are available through doctor's offices and at http://www.eyeeco.com.
Eye Eco, Inc., based in Temecula, CA, is committed to giving back to the community and donates a percentage of net sales to non-profit organizations dedicated to finding a cure for Sjogren’s Syndrome and other diseases that cause chronic dry eyes.
