"For a true comparison," Witham explained, "AVR should have compared OCuSOFT(R) Lid Scrub(TM) PLUS at the 120-minute time point to SteriLid(R) at the 60-second time point." They would have found that OCuSOFT(R) is more effective.
OCuSOFT(R) Lid Scrub(TM) PLUS was developed with an understanding that most patients, and even health care providers, will not spend 60-seconds applying a solution and rinsing it off.
Emily Sickbert-Bennet, a public health epidemiologist with the University of North Carolina Health Care System and the UNC School of Public Health conducted a study that illustrates that, on average, health care providers spend less than 10-seconds scrubbing their hands.
"This is important information that should not be dismissed. The parallels that can be drawn between these hygiene regimens speak volumes about the likelihood of a patient realistically complying with a 60-second eyelid scrubbing regimen," Witham said. "We developed this practically non- irritating formula in an effort to increase patient compliance. What good is served by recommending a regimen that patients will not adhere to?"
