Have You Brushed Your Lashes? Daily Eye Care and Hygiene Routine


Why did nobody tell me about this!

It all could have been avoided with Daily Eye Hygiene Routine!

Daily Eye Hygiene is to opthalmologists as brushing your teeth is to a dentist. It is just one of those things that everybody should do every day in order to prevent serious problems in the future. And it is even simpler than brushing you teeth.

Take A New Cotton Bud

Dip In Clean Water

Close Eye

Scrub Gently At Base Of Upper Lashes For 20 Seconds

Now Do The Other Side

This is the enemy of your eye health. 
These are the microscopic, infected fragments that you are removing on a daily basis.

Early Warning Signs With The Naked Eye

  • 'Dandruff' or crusting in lashes
  • Small white swellings at lash base
  • Lash loss
  • Grey Lashes (lashes never naturally turn grey)


  • Irritable, watery 'dry' eyes
  • Minor discomfort in bright light
  • Slight redness

Can Lead To

  • Cysts 
  • Abscesses
  • Local infection spreading backwards into orbit
  • Corneal Ulceration
And all because nobody told us that a quick scrub of the lashes should be a part of everybody's daily personal hygiene routine along with brushing our teeth!

That is all that it takes to avoid these symptomatic irritations
