The EyeBag® Company

The EyeBag® Company manufactures and distributes the MGDRx EyeBag®, a microwaveable, reusable warm compress for the treatment of dry eye and blepharitis. Compliance is excellent.
 
Most dry eye is evaporative, due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Optimal warming of the glands melts the thickened secretions, restoring normal tear film homeostasis without eye drops or medication.

Peer reviewed RCT confirms safety and efficacy of the EyeBag®.The recent Tear Film and Ocular Surface (TFOS) report on dry eye cites the EyeBag® as being effective first line treatment.
