Works fine…BUT I’VE FINALLY FOUND A SIMPLER CURE FOR STYES!!!!
By W. B. Daitch
SECOND UPDATE, ONE YEAR LATER, 4 Dec 2011: Just checking back in to tell you that my advice below STILL WORKS! The cure for a stye is this: SIMPLY DON’T GIVE YOURSELF THE STYE IN THE FIRST PLACE! How? Well I was a life-long stye sufferer, but now I’ve had ZERO styes in the last year, because I’ve managed to easily follow the new habits I described below for you. PLEASE just try and I can almost guarantee you too will be cured of your styes! There is no purchase, no cost, no pain — just a bit of awareness, self control and some simple new habits. If I do nothing else useful to the greater public in this life (besides serving my country as a U.S. Navy submarine officer!), at least I can help more people discover the primary cause of styes and how to banish them forever. Sorry Ocusoft, but you’re really not necessary, although you’re a useful, refreshing supplement for additional lid cleansing every night. Good luck you all, and please post a comment to this review and let me know if my advice helps you!
UPDATE: 26 Nov 2010: OK, here’s what I’ve learned about my chronic styes on my lower right eye lid. I think I’ve pretty much solved the problem and I don’t even need to use these pads or anything else any more. After a marathon research session on the web, I found one entry where the person said styes are often caused by the staph BACTERIA from your nose. That is the culprit!!! So if you touch anywhere near your nostrils, and then near your eyelid — trouble will follow, GUARANTEED! The same is true, to a somewhat lesser extent, if you ever touch on or near your eyes with your fingers during the day, unless you just washed them — you know all about the germs (including staph) on your hands from light switches, door handles, keyboards, yadda yadda. So in the last year I have forced myself to do 3 simple things as a habit:
1. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER touch my eyes after my nostrils. PERIOD. Don’t touch, scratch or blow your nose and then a few seconds or minutes later touch anywhere around your eyes — BAD, BAD, BAD! Always wash/Purell my hands after touching my nostrils, and even quickly wash the area around my nose tip/nostrils after blowing, if I have a few extra seconds.
2. Avoid touching eyes (or face near eyes) throughout the day. Just don’t do it. Sometimes I will catch myself just as my hand is moving to my eye. If hands were just washed/Purelled, then OK. But you can actually train yourself to NOT TOUCH YOUR EYES OR THE AREA AROUND YOUR EYES — try to train yourself to not even touch your face. You probably heard that the typical person touches their face hundreds of times per day. So you just have to train yourself not to do it — it’s hard at first, but it’s doable. If you really have an itch, use the back of your sleeve, or a tissue, but DON’T USE YOUR FINGERS!!!
3. Also EXTREMELY HELPFUL: Every time I wash my hands after using the bathroom at the office, after drying my hands I then use the wet paper towel to cleanse my problem eye or both eyes. Feels good, refreshing and really keeps the lids clean all day, as they get wiped and cleansed at least a few times per day. Those bacteria that manage to evade steps one and two above, never get a chance to plant their stye gardens on my eyelid!
I’ve been doing this for a year now and have had no styes. I don’t even use the Ocusoft pads any more, unless I just want to give my lid a good cleansing, or if I feel like there could be trouble on the horizon, nip it in the bud. So if you’ve been tortured with chronic styes, don’t blame it on “bad genes” like I did (my mother says I have the same problem as my grandfather, who must’ve been susceptible, but also was likely an eye toucher!) — blame it instead on “operator error” — change your habits and you will prevail!!!
ORIGINAL REVIEW (May 2009): I can’t live without these pads. Started using them a year ago, desperate to find something to help prevent my chronic periodic styes. These really work. I use every day, morning and night. I cut each pad into 3 pieces and use one at a time — only takes a second to snip it, and the box lasts 3 times as long. You don’t need a full pad at a time. After applying, I rinse it off one lid and leave it on the other more troublesome lower lid. It doesn’t burn, feels fine, more of a clean feeling than a burn. Look for the “Extra Strength” version in the light blue box — it’s WAYYYYYYY better and not all foamy like the regular type in the dark blue box. You should find the cost to be the same — it is at my drug store. Verdict: LOVE ‘EM. In the last year I’ve only had one stye, instead of my monthly battles!

An eye-opening experience!
By Patricia Stringer
Six months ago, I had never heard of brephalitis. I only knew that at certain times of the year my eyelids would become red and painful, making contact lens wear impossible.
During a routine visit, my optometrist gave a name to the problem, and Ocusoft eyelid cleanser was part of the solution.
I’ve used both formulas, and both are quite effective. I prefer the extra-strength formula simply because it is more concentrated.
Thanks to Ocusoft, my brephalitis is under control, and contact lens season lasts all year. I highly recommend this product.

Fantastic eyelid cleaner!!! THE BEST!!!!
I have been using this with Restasis for severely dry eye for about a year. My eyes were so dry that my eyelids would stick to my eyeballs in the morning. I couldn’t see until I put some vials of natural tears in them but then it didn’t help much, just enough to get my eyelids opened. It was awful. Plus, I was having eye infection after eye infection for years. I have eye plugs too to help with keeping my tears in my eyes (not much help either) and have used box after box of the tear vial drops. Nothing seem to really help. Plus, I suffered with problems with dry eye all day long. My eyes would blur up while I was driving, walking down the stairs or whatever I was doing. They burned, itched, hurt, crust up…..and was red most of the time. I used hot compresses on them and ointments….you name it, I probably tried it. FINALLY, I met a optimologist that introduced me to Restasis….he said this would work even with eye plugs…and it did help a lot. But I still kept having debri fall into my eyes and was causing me irritation. I had Rosacea but not too bad but he thought it was a contributing factor to the problem. But who really knows? So he recommended OcuSoft Lid Scrub Plus Formula. I thought, “Oh brother, ANOTHER thing to try.” But I was game because at that time I had no other options. I looked at the cost of these and the Restasis and thought ECCCKK…..all that money….But nevertheless, I gave it a try…..it worked like magic! So I figued, I don’t have to go see the doctor as much, I don’t hardly ever buy tear vials anymore, I don’t have infections so I don’t need to buy antibiotics, steriods, etc…..so in the long run I’m saving money, saving my eyes and causing me a lot less stress too. I use one every morning and wipe away the residue with a clean wet cloth…..I use one side, all four sections on one eye, and then turn the wipe over and use it on the other eye. (hands clean!) then take a wet wash cloth and wipe it off. Then use my Restasis. At night, I don’t use these, just the Restasis. I don’t usually have any problems with my eyes during the day. This takes care of it all. I am sooo happy and thankful for this product. Plus, it’s less expensive here on Amazon when I buy 2 with free shipping and it be delivered to me, right to my house. How wonderful! It’s a great product!!!
