Corneal Lens Corporation would like to introduce you to TheraTears SteriLid, product from Advanced Vision Research, in the TheraTears Range. Daily lid hygiene is important for those with blepharitis and dry eye, as well as those preparing for eye surgery. Finally, a convenient and effective way to cleanse the eyelids and eyelashes!

SteriLid is the first eyelid cleanser shown to kill both gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Endophthalmitis organisms come from the eyelid and external flora. The most common being, staphylococcus edipermidis, from the eyelid margin, see the enclosed chart with kill time data for eight eyelid organisms.

Tea Tree oil has been well known for years as having antibacterial properties. Linalool oil is a minor component of tea tree oil, and when combined with a membrane permeabiliser (Tris-EDTA), it kills gram positive and gram negative bacteria after one minute of exposure at low concentrations that are well tolerated by the eye.
