The role of Hypochlorous acid in eye care is not for continuous everyday eyelid cleansing, but instead used as an adjunct to OCuSOFT® Lid Scrub® cleansers in severe cases only. Only in such severe cases might Hypochlorous acid (OCuSOFT® HypoChlor™) be beneficial. In such cases, OCuSOFT® suggests the use Combination Therapy including both a surfactant cleanser and Hypochlorous acid to achieve optimum results. (It should be noted that such combination therapy is not necessary for the vast majority of patients.) OCuSOFT® HypoChlor™ Gel is ideal in these cases since it can be applied and left on overnight in order to expedite healing.
