Dry Eyes

Many people get dry eyes. It's not usually serious and there are things you can do to help. You can get dry eyes if you do not make enough tears or your tears dry up quickly.

Most common symptoms of dry eyes - You may have dry eyes if your eyes are:

  • more watery than normal
  • sensitive to light
  • blurry
  • red
  • gritty
  • sore
  • itchy.

Causes of dry eyes - You may be more likely to get dry eyes if:

  • you're over the age of 50
  • you wear contact lenses
  • you look at computer screens for a long time without a break
  • you spend time in air conditioned or heated environments
  • it's windy, cold, dry or dusty
  • you smoke or drink alcohol
  • you take certain medicines (for example, some antidepressants or blood pressure medicines)
  • you have a condition, such as blepharitis, Sjögren's syndrome or lupus.

How to treat dry eyes yourself:

  • clean your eyelids every day
  • take breaks to rest your eyes when using a computer screen
  • make sure your computer screen is just below eye level
  • use a humidifier to stop the air getting dry
  • if you wear contact lenses, take them out and wear glasses to rest your eyes.

See an optician or GP if you still have dry eyes after trying home treatments for a few weeks or there's any change in the shape of your eyelids. They can check what the cause might be and recommend treatment for it.

For best results pair with Biodegradable Eyelid Wipes for gently daily cleansing as part of your eyelid hygiene regime.

A good self care guide and information for Dry Eyes is available on the NHS website.

NHS - Dry eyes


Can I use the Eye Doctor compress cold?
Yes, you can, however, if you choose to use it cold, then we recommend putting the eye compress in a freezer bag and placing it in the freezer, rather than the fridge.

My eye compress doesn’t get hot enough
Our eye compress has been designed to heat up to just a couple of degrees past body temperature. It is supposed to be a comfortable warmth, rather than being hot. It can be heated for 30 seconds and another further five seconds if preferred, but no more.

Why isn’t the eye compress helping my dry eye symptoms?
It can take regular use to alleviate your dry eye symptoms. For best results, we recommend that you use the eye compress twice a day, every day for two weeks.

Does the eye compress contain latex?
Yes, there are traces of latex within the strap that fastens around the back of your head.

What do I do if the eye compress doesn’t fit on my head?
Don’t worry, the straps are a comfort feature and not necessary to achieve effective treatment. If you need an alternative way to use the compress, simply recline your head back and apply the eye compress to your eyes.

How often should I wash my eye compress?
We recommend washing your compress at least once a week, but if your dry eye symptoms are more severe, we would recommend washing it more often.

What are the beads inside the eye compress?
The compress is filled with our self-hydrating BodyBeads®, made of medical grade silica.

Can your eye compresses be heated in a combi microwave?
Our eye compresses can be heated in a combi microwave as long as the oven/grill element is switched off (please refer to your manufacturers instructions to see if this is possible).


Info Leaflet

Eyelid problems:

Find out what to do if you have a lump on your eyelid, or an eyelid that's swollen, sticky, itchy, drooping or twitching.

Most eyelid problems are harmless and not serious.

It's fairly common to have any of these problems:

  • a lump that goes away by itself after 3 or 4 weeks
  • mildly itchy, flaky or sticky eyelids that clear up by themselves
  • swelling from a nearby insect bite, injury or operation that goes away after a week or so
  • twitching or blinking from time to time – often when you're tired
  • eyelids that droop (or get more "hooded") as you get older.

What makes the Eyelid Wipes Biodegradable?

Made from Viscose fibres, our wipes are fully biodegradable in natural environments:

  • in the soil, compost and both fresh or marine water.

They will fully convert back to nature and do not require recycling. At The Body Doctor, we recognise that being sustainable is becoming a necessity due to ever-changing perceptions around the world and we are starting to bridge the gap between ‘knowing’ and ‘doing,’ by embracing sustainable products, packaging and practices. We believe our eyelid wipes being biodegradable is a first for the optical industry and we are dedicated to continue this initiative across our whole portfolio, reducing as much impact to the environment as possible.


Before using this product it is important to read the information leaflet and follow the instructions in the package. 

How does The Eye Doctor Essential® work?

The Eye Doctor Essential® antibacterial, reusable hot and cold eye mask externally heats the eyelids, which stimulates the glands to give relief from any tension or irritation of the eyes.

There is strong scientific research showing that gently heating the eyelid to the recommended temperature will help treat various conditions, including but not limited to dry eyes, blepharitis and MGD.


  1. Heat eyelids externally - do this by using your Eye Doctor Dry Eye Compress in accordance with the instructions. This will allow the buttery oil to melt and become liquid again.
  2. Express the melted oil from the glands by following the Eyelid Massage Procedure as shown in the instructions. This will allow the glands to produce healthy oil again.
  3. Clean the base of the eyelashes using our Eye Doctor Lid Wipes, Eye Doctor Lid Cleanser or a clean tissue. This reduces the build-up of bacteria which can be responsible for some of the symptoms.


Call 999 or go to A&E if:

  • you have any changes to your sight, like wavy lines, flashing or loss of vision.
  • it hurts to look at the light.
  • you have a red eye, severe headache and feel sick.
  • your eye or eyes are very dark red.
  • you have injured or pierced your eye.
  • something is stuck in your eye (like a piece of glass or grit).

  • The Eye Doctor Essential® antibacterial, reusable eye mask
  • An Instruction booklet and massage technique procedure
  • Eyelid Wipes x2
