One of the conditions a hot compress such as the Eyetonic Eye Mask can help alleviate is Blepharitis.

This is a common condition that affects the edges of the eyelids and the most obvious sign is when this area becomes red and swollen.

The symptoms can include sore, red and itchy eyelids, greasy or crusty eyelashes, increased sensitivity to light, swollen eyelid edges and finding it uncomfortable to wear contact lenses.

Opticians and eye professionals can advise on the condition if it is persistent, but initially sufferers can use a hot eye compress to help alleviate the condition, as well as cleaning and massaging the eyelids.

The NHS states: “See your high-street optician (optometrist) if you have persistent symptoms of blepharitis that aren't being controlled by simple eyelid hygiene measures.

“They can examine you to check if the problem is caused by an underlying condition, or may refer you to an eye specialist.

“Contact your optometrist or GP immediately if you have any severe symptoms.”

The NHS also states: “Blepharitis is usually a long-term condition. Most people experience repeated episodes, separated by periods without symptoms. It can't usually be cured, but a daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and prevent permanent scarring of the eyelid margins.”

The use of a hot compress is advised, along with the gentle massage of the eyelids and ensuring the area is clean.

The Eyetonic Eye Mask is a good product to use for such a condition. Because the eye mask can be used as a hot or cold compress, it can help with a range of eye conditions.

With Blepharitis, the hot compress helps the production of more runny oils around the eyes which can help soothe the condition.

More advice can be obtained from an optician who can also advise on the long-term treatment of the condition.
