Finally, an All-Natural Daily Treatment for Ocular Surfaces Introducing Cliradex® & Cliradex® Light

Over 30 million Americans suffer from inflamed, itchy or crusty eyelids. You see them everyday. For many, it’s a constant battle to have eyes that feel and look good.

If your patients are suffering, they are most likely experiencing one or more of these symptoms:

  • Dry, Puffy, Watery Eyes
  • Burning Sensation
  • Eyelid Redness, Swelling
  • Irritation and Itchiness
  • Discharge

What is Cliradex®?

As you know, many of these symptoms are caused by bacterial infection on and around the eyelids that, if properly cleansed, can be controlled. However, an unaddressed mild irritation can become a more severe ocular issue like blepharitis or meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), affecting quality of vision and appearance.

Some people have tried conventional methods of relief with little result, while others have learned to live with it. There are many over-the-counter options for treatment, but most are traditional cleansers derived from man-made chemicals - harmful to your patient and the environment.

Fortunately, there’s an all natural, preservative-free lid, lash and facial cleanser that’s safe and easy to use on a daily basis. Cliradex® and Cliradex® Light, formulated with special ingredients, gets to the root of the symptoms, killing bacteria and alleviating redness and dryness associated with many eye conditions.

What sets apart the patented Cliradex® formula is the key ingredient 4-Terpineol, the most important organic component of tea tree oil, which helps to keep the eyelids clean and healthy while leaving the user with a cooling sensation on their face.

Cliradex® towelettes are all natural, preservative-free lid, lash and facial cleansers that help manage symptoms associated with blepharitis, MGD, rosacea, dry eye, demodex, chalazia and other lid margin diseases. Cliradex towelettes are the #1 doctor recommended solution for ocular hygiene and dry, irritated eyes, and are safe to use everyday. Cliradex comes in a 3” x 2.5” x 3.75” carton containing 24 individually packaged single use towelettes.

Cliradex® Light foaming cleanser, a new refreshing, soothing, and gentle product in eyelid hygiene, is specifically formulated for patients with dry eyes, blepharitis, and MGD. Cliradex® Light works by safely and effectively cleaning microorganisms and debris from eyelids and is meant to be part of a daily hygiene routine. Cliradex Light comes in a foaming dispenser canister intended for 30 days of use and should be stored at room temperature.

Isolating 4-Terpineol for Increased Efficacy

Tea tree oil (TTO), the essential oil derived from the native plant, Melaleuca alternifolia, is characterized by 15 major components. Scientific studies have shown that 4-Terpineol, or Terpinen-4-ol (T4O), is the most important ingredient found in TTO, with even greater miticidal effects than TTO itself. This is because some of TTO’s ingredients are ineffective and their relationship is antagonistic, meaning the efficacy of one component is cancelled out by the presence of another component.

Easy and Safe for Everyday Use

After demonstrating the proper use of a Cliradex® or Cliradex® Light in your office, patients can easily use the towelette or foaming cleanser at home. It is recommended that the patient schedule an initial follow-up visit after one month of use.
