Regarding the effectiveness of OCuSOFT® Lid Scrub® PLUS, Marguerite McDonald, M.D. of Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island and Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology, NYU School of Medicine, New York, US,goes on to say, “In a time-kill study, the anti-bacterial effectiveness of OCuSOFT® Lid Scrub® PLUS was independently tested against a variety of pathogens. In particular, S. epidermidis, a leading cause of post-operative endophthalmitis was tested. These studies demonstrated a 5.5 log reduction confirming its significant effectiveness.”
It is interesting to note that debridement claims made by Hypochlorous acid products are due to the spray projectile packaging of all Hypochlorous acid products rather than strength of the concentration. Significantly, none of the Hypochlorous acid formulations on the market contain any surfactants to remove oil from the eyelids. Most expert ophthalmologists and optometrists agree that the surfactant components of existing eyelid cleansers are necessary to remove excessive oil, debris and desquamated skin from the eyelids. Since OCuSOFT®Lid Scrub®PLUS contains anti-bacterial properties, in cases of bacterial blepharitis treatment, this ONE product will effectively treat most patients.
