You can get your surgical patients off to a good start with a new pre-op kit of lid hygiene products from Bruder, the company says. The kit includes:

• Bruder Hygienic Eyelid Cleansing Wipes, which contain a mild surfactant designed to remove build up, oil, dirt, pollen and desquamated skin that may cause eye irritation and infection.

• Bruder Hygienic Eyelid Solution. Applying one to two sprays of this 0.02% pure hypochlorous acid solution daily to closed eyes helps fight infection, reduce inflammation and bacteria, and enhance natural ability to heal, the company says.

• The Bruder Sx Pre-Surgical Compress, which the company says is designed for the unique needs of the pre-surgical patient, is made of fabric woven with antimicrobial silver threads to unclog meibomian glands and stabilize the tear film to improve pre-surgical measurements. 

The items are packed in a case that’s large enough for doctors to customize by adding complimentary products, prescriptions or patient education paperwork, according to the company. Comanaging optometrists can provide the self-contained kit in their practices or via Bruder’s new online portal, specifically designed for pre-surgical patients.
