Periocular hygiene

The eyelids with their eyelashes and glands (sebaceous and sweat) and the lacrimal sac are structures protecting the eye, which form part of the area defined as the periocular area. There are various ophthalmological disorders affecting this periocular area. 

Cleansing of eyelids and eyelashes

During the first year of life, babies commonly experience obstruction of the nasolacrimal ducts due to excessive mucous and accumulation of rheum after sleep. Blepharitis or conjunctivitis conditions are also common in infants and children.


With these conditions, it is important to establish specific hygiene measures for the periocular area (to reduce the risk of irritation or allergy and not exacerbate the symptomatic condition, and to remove organic residues and reduce inflammation and irritation, thus facilitating healing).
