To treat blepharitis and evaporative dry eyes, how effective is thermal eye compress that you microwave vs regular warm water compresses.
No: A homeopathic drop to "soothe" the eye. Typically "pink" eye is a viral conjunctivitis that has no cure, that is commonly acquired during the "cold" season. Time heals. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) artificial tears, decongestant eye drops, and proper eyelid hygiene generally is all that is necessary.

Dear eye experts/ ophthalmologist:for evaporate dry eye, i can't do warm eye compress. Would washing and massaging eyes 5 min in shower be equivalent?
Maybe: The warm compresses may be used in the shower. I feel that it is the abrasive action of the washcloth combined with the detergent action of the baby shampoo that improves the blepharitis. Try this out and see. For the evaporativ dry eye, use a good artificial tear for lubrication. Keeping the blepharitis under control will help the dry eye. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Warm Compresses: A stye, or chalazion, is an obstructed or infected oil gland of the eyelid. Use of warm compresses (a wash rag soaked in warm water) held over the closed eye for 10 minutes a few times a day will usually help the stye to resolve. Sometimes antibiotic eye ointment and less commonly oral antibiotics can help as well.

BAK Preservative: Benzalkonium Chloride is a common preservative in eye drops, including artificial tears. It can cause an allergic reaction in some people if the tears are used frequently. Try preservative-free single use vials of ocular lubricants and you should be okay for frequent dosing.

Bruised eye lid: if its a "fresh" bruise - then ice should limit its size - if its over 24 hours old warm compresses may speed the resolution but generally a contusion (bruise) results from blood leaking into the tissues and the body takes time to eliminate it with the bruise turning a variety of colors before resolving. I might avoid aspirin products for the next week as well ...Read more
