NuLids® System

About NuLids System

We are very excited to offer the NuLids System. NuLids is the first dry eye management system designed for home use and can easily fit into your daily routine! It is a simple, yet advanced, medical device that helps reduce dry eye discomfort. Once you receive a brief in-office orientation, you can easily maintain your 1 minute daily treatments from home, or even while traveling.

About Chronic Dry Eyes

Do you suffer from itchy, red, burning, stinging, or maybe you feel as if there's sand or a foreign object in your eye? These are all symptoms of chronic dry eye or dry eye disease (DED). DED is caused by a lack of lubrication and moisture on the eye’s surface. It's very common – you may be one of the 33% of Americans who suffer from dry eye. A number of factors can contribute to dry eye, including aging, heating and/or air conditioning, seasonal allergies, prolonged computer use, wind, smoke, dry environments, anxiety medications, pregnancy, autoimmune disorders, and laser eye surgery, just to name a few. NuLids System treats the underlying causes of DED.

How does the NuLids System work?

NuLids gently stimulates the meibomian gland's opening using a disposable tip made of a soft silicone material to remove biofilm and scurf that may be occluding the glands' openings. It restores the Meibomian glands in your upper and lower eye lids to a healthier state – this is what improves the symptoms of dry eye.

The Effectiveness of the NuLids System

Use of NuLids has been proven to improve average tear film breakup time by 83% after just a few weeks of use. NuLids is easy and simple to use taking only 60 seconds per day for a treatment.

The NuLids device is very safe. NuLids’ self-regulating design halts movement if too much pressure is applied to the eye lid or if it comes into contact with the eye. In the more than 4,400 eye lid treatments performed with NuLids, there never been any reported incidents or issues.

NuLids is also cost-effective. Eye drops, gels and ointments can be costly. NuLids offers effective, on-going relief for just a few dollars a week. NuLids is sold only through eye doctors who will regulate your therapy and closely supervise your treatment.

“Most of my patients have compromised Meibomian gland function, also known as Evaporative Dry Eye", says Dr. Olkowski. When this occurs, the quality and/or quantity of the oil produced by the Meibomian glands becomes insufficient or unstable causing premature tear evaporation. I specifically designed NuLids to aid in the production and flow of this oil from these glands.
