Palm Beach, FL, April 14, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Comfort Zone Laboratories is presently in a start-up mode with patent pending products in the ophthalmic arena, and is interested in licensing its current products.
Classical approach to this problem is to perform in-house surgical meibomian gland expression, using two cotton-tip applicators and applying manual pressure to the glands of the lower lids, expressing the opaque, inspissated and staph-laden material. The hard part is performing it on the upper lid where the patient feels extraneous pain and discomfort. If you ever had this lipid catharsis performed, you already know from your own grotesque personal experience with the sheer amount of “gunk” extracted and pain that entails classical procedures and techniques doctors use today, since nothing else is available.
The patent pending therapeutic device is directed towards a new dry eye cleaning process without feeling pain. This therapeutic device has a sophisticated and advanced irrigation system employing hydrodynamic cavitation producing transient radial motion of bubbles wherein the individual manipulates the hand piece of the sealed eye cup irrigator to wash or remove gunk’s from his/her eyes. The irrigator nozzle is configured to produce transient radial motion of bubbles in the water stream. This hydrodynamic cavitation process produces a chemical breakdown product, which combats bacterium, while dislodging lipids or other offending foreign objects from the eyes.
The hydrodynamic therapeutic treatment consists of 2 phases (Acute phase and Maintenance phase). Acute phase treatment involves intensive therapy to rapidly bring the disease under control. In the Maintenance phase the goal is to indefinitely continue the minimum amount of therapy that is necessary to keep the disease quiet. CZL focuses on the therapeutic treatments that helps control the blepharitis process itself. Needless to say, controlling blepharitis it-self will reduce all the other blepharitis related complications.
Hydrodynamic therapy has been found to be the most critical element of effective blepharitis control. This therapy removes the eyelid debris (which can be colonized by bacteria), reduces the bacterial load (mechanically as well as by lysis of bacteria due to rapid motion of bubble waves) and stabilizes the tear film by releasing oily secretions from the meibomian glands, thus reducing tear evaporation (so dry eye symptoms are also reduced).
In this therapy, warm gentle radial motions of bubbles, heat the debris and crust on the lid margin to or above the melting point of their individual components, so that they are easily removed.
This therapeutic device helps your tears directly and indirectly – directly, by improving some of the really important stuff that goes into your eyes and indirectly, by getting rid of or preventing nasty stuff that gets in the way and makes dry eye conditions worse or creates conditions that feel like dry eye.
Furthermore, this device benefits dry eye syndrome in four ways that is considered to be value added.
1) It retains moisture while cleaning and after cleaning.
2) It acts as a powerful agitator while sanitizing with warm circulating transient radial motion of bubble waves to liquefy the toothpaste like secretion plugging the glands.
3) The intense vibrations mode produced by radial motion of bubbles wave help closed microvasculature that is feeding the inflammatory mediators to the glands that inhibit normal function.
4) The warm transient radial motion of bubble waves, therapeutically improve lid opposition. Therefore, the pumping mechanism of the meibomian glands improves after this therapy with far greater instant results. Hence, recurrent blepharitis ends.
The value added process of hydrodynamic bubble wave therapeutic device is that, it retains moisture in the infected eyes, enhances quality of life, quality of rest or sleep and also reduces the need for other dry eye treatments, such as artificial solutions and ointments.
