Bausch + Lomb and TheraPearl team up on hot/cold eye mask

BY Michael Johnsen

MADISON, N.J. — Bausch + Lomb and TheraPearl have teamed up to market the Bausch + Lomb TheraPearl Eye Mask, a new option for consumers suffering from a variety of common ailments, including the most common type of dry eye.

The Bausch + Lomb TheraPearl Eye Mask is pliable, reusable and features a face-hugging design that stays in place without dripping or leaking. The convenient Eye Mask can be used for hot and cold therapy by chilling it in the freezer or refrigerator or heating it in the microwave. A key point of difference for the Bausch + Lomb TheraPearl Eye Mask is that it delivers consistent hot or cold therapy in the therapeutic temperature range for the doctor recommended period of treatment time — approximately 20 minutes.

Affecting an estimated 25 million people in the United States, dry eye is among the most common conditions seen by eye care professionals, and its prevalence is increasing as the population ages. Common symptoms include blurred vision, sensitivity to light, eye fatigue and a burning sensation. Dry eye occurs when not enough tears are produced, or when the tears are not the correct consistency and evaporate too quickly.

Using a heated Bausch + Lomb TheraPearl Eye Mask can help loosen meibum, the oily secretion from the glands that line the eyelid and works to protect the eye’s tear film by preventing evaporation of tears. The Eye Mask also can be used to help alleviate symptoms such as puffy eyes, headaches, migraines, sinus discomfort and swelling. 

Bausch + Lomb plans to make the Eye Mask available to consumers through their local retailers in January 2014.
