ThermaMEDx, based in Atlanta, is debuting EverTears instant heat eye compress + moist cleaning pad for dry eye and stye relief.

EverTears features patented ThermaMEDx technology to instantly heat to the temperature needed to help unblock eyelid glands responsible for most dry eye symptoms. This moist heat also activates the natural power of a proprietary cleaning formula made with essential coconut extracts and fatty acids. When you feel the soothing warmth on your eyelids, EverTears is already working to provide sustained relief of dry eye symptoms with regular use, the company said.

EverTears was inspired by world-renowned doctor and research scientist Michel Guillon. “The ThermaMEDx team is passionate about bringing sustainable relief to patients suffering from dry eye symptoms related to Meibomian gland dysfunction,” the company said.

“Based on over 30 years of research, Guillon patented the world's first self-heating eye compress, featuring a pre-moistened cloth cleaning pad to deliver the two therapies most recommended by doctors in one convenient medical device,” the company said. “EverTears is designed to provide relief from dry eye symptoms while also helping your eyes retain more of your natural protective tear film.”

The product helps restore natural tear film and reduces reliance on artificial tears.
