Recent reports suggest that the Demodex mite is a contributing factor to meibomian gland dysfunction, meibomitis, blepharitis, and other eyelid irritations. A variety of corneal pathologic features, together with conjunctival inflammation commonly noted in rosacea, can be found in patients with Demodex infestation of the eyelids.(2) Studies confirm ocular infestation of Demodex may be as high as 47%.(3)

Troy Smith, Vice President, Professional and Technical Relations, remarks, "Researchers have for some time considered Demodex mite infestation as a factor in meibomian gland disease. It is exciting to note that our new OCuSOFT(R) Lid Scrub(TM) PLUS effectively kills Demodex mites utilizing its unique 'Leave-On' formula. Significantly, in blepharitis patients, one out of every six eyelashes contain Demodex mites, a number that increases with age. OCuSOFT(R) Lid Scrub(TM) PLUS is the only 'Leave-On' formulation eyelid cleanser on the market facilitating optimal Demodex kill rates."

Nat G. Adkins, Jr., OCuSOFT's Chairman, adds, "Practitioners are now recognizing that eradication of Demodex can significantly improve patient comfort and quality of life. OCuSOFT(R) is pleased to once again be at the forefront of lid disease and ocular surface therapy."
