Zocular Eyelid System Treatment (ZEST) For Dry Eye And Demodex
ZEST (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) is an exciting new treatment developed by Zocular® to treat dry eye, demodex and blepharitis. Dry eye and blepharitis are often associated with poor hygiene of the eye area.
ZEST is an in-office lid cleaning and debridement system using a natural okra-based gel. It is an effective treatment for killing demodex mites, removing dirt and debris and relieving associated inflammation.
What Is ZEST?
ZEST (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) is like a deep shampoo for the eyes to clean and debride the lids and lashes. The procedure involves applying a gel to the eyelid margin and lashes with a cotton swab and cleaning in a circular motion, working the gel into a lather. Following the deep cleansing procedure, the gel is rinsed off with saline solution.
The ZEST gel is formulated with a refined extract of okra- an edible green seed pod; to lift and clear oil, debris and residue along the eyelid margin. Okra is a powerful cleansing ingredient that is also gentle to use around the eye, helping to calm and soothe inflammation. After only one treatment, patients will notice an improvement in their dry eye symptoms, blepharitis and demodex. ZEST may be the answer to help your eyes look and feel better.
