Are you suffering from irritated eyes or crusty, goopy eyelids? These common conditions can be annoying and interfere with your life if you don’t take care of them.

Zocular lid treatment is a natural treatment that relieves common eye irritation. Keep reading to learn more about Zocular lid treatment and how it can help your inflamed eyes.

What is Zocular Lid Treatment?

Zocular treatment is an all-natural okra-based product that helps patients end dry eye symptoms. Because it is not a drug like an antibiotic or steroid, it has no severe side effects.

Bacteria, dirt, and oils on your eyelids can cause your eyes to itch, burn, and water. Zocular products clean and remove residue from your eyelids. 

It removes these irritants before they get into your eye and cause more pain and discomfort.

During the treatment, your eye doctor wipes your eyelids with the Zocular product. Wiping infected or irritated eyelids with the Zocular products removes irritants.

What Does It Treat?

Zocular lid treatment helps with a few common irritating conditions like:

  • Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD)
  • Blepharitis
  • Seasonal allergies

It can treat any patient who has irritated eyes because of dirt and debris buildup on their eyelids. Blinking brings these irritants into the eyes, and eye drops only offer temporary relief. It is best to remove the irritants to prevent them from getting into your eyes.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)

Meibomian gland dysfunction, also known as evaporative dry eye, is a form of dry eye syndrome. This eye condition occurs when the eye is unable to produce enough tears to keep itself moist.

A blockage in the glands in your eyelids that produce oil, the meibomian glands, causes MGD. This blockage prevents oils from bonding with your tears to lubricate your eyes.

Because of this, your tears evaporate faster, and your eyes become dry and irritated. Symptoms include burning, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light, wind, and dry air.

Zocular treatments can help unblock the glands and remove any debris that was interfering with oil production. Unblocking the glands allows oil to flow freely to keep your eyes hydrated.


Blepharitis is a bacterial infection where bacteria grows on your eyelashes and eyelids. This bacterial growth creates flaky dandruff-like discharge on your eyelids and lashes.

It causes dry eyes and can lead to infections in your eyes as well as intense irritation. Symptoms of blepharitis include swollen itchy eyes and flaky, crusty, inflamed eyelids.

Wiping your eyelids and eyelashes with Zocular products will remove this discharge buildup. Removing the flakes and crust can reduce eye irritation from blepharitis because less debris will fall into your eyes.

Seasonal Allergies

Some seasonal allergies cause similar symptoms to chronic dry eye syndrome. Pollen and other allergens like dust, smoke, and dirt can get in your eyes and irritate them.

This irritation may want to make you rub your eyes to relieve the itching. Do not ever rub your eyes. Rubbing them can do much more damage than slight irritation can cause.

Rubbing your eyes during allergy season will also get more irritants and allergens in your eyes. Zocular wipes can remove irritants from around your eyes, so they are less itchy, and you rub them less.

Zocular lid treatment offers a natural solution for many causes of dry eyes. The regimen cleans your eyelids, which prevents irritants from entering your eyes.
