Developers of the popular Bruder moist heat mask recently added a product to their portfolio for patients who desire dry eye relief while on the go or when a microwave is unavailable. Called Eyedration, the mask contains a formula made of iron powder, activated carbon, water, inorganic salt and vermiculite; together, these ingredients generate moist heat once exposed to air, which Bruder says is warm enough to melt the meibum oil in eyelid glands and help maintain tear production.

Once a mask is removed from its packaging, the air-activated heat will last up to 20 minutes, the company reports. Ten single-use masks with soft ear loops come in a pack, but individual masks can also be ordered.
Eyecare professionals can now order Eyedration masks at bruder.com/pro with delivery in November 2023, according to the company press release.
