Who should use NACLINO™?
NACLINO™ is ideal for those seeking a soft, gentle and easy to use solution for daily care and hygiene of lashes, eyelids and the eyelid margin.
Patients with eye disorders are encouraged to consult their doctor before using NACLINO™ for daily eyelid hygiene. However, the saline-only nature of NACLINO™ should be suitable for most patients.
How does NACLINO™ work?
NACLINO™ was designed to provide a sterile, gentle and non-irritating option for eyelid hygiene.
Instead of surfactants (soaps), which take away the physiological lipids produced by the Meibomian glands (which can destroy the lipid layer of the tear film), NACLINO™ lid wipes are pre-moistened solely with a saline solution, gently cleansing the eyelids with minimal effects on the lipid layer of the tear film.
How to use NACLINO™ ?
NACLINO™ is most often used two times per day – in the morning and evening, or as directed by a doctor before and after ophthalmic procedures / surgery.
Wash hands thoroughly before removing the NACLINO™ saline lid wipe from the sachet. Moisten the eyelid margins with the pre-moistened saline wipe and gently massage along the upper and lower edge of the eyelid.
When cleaning eyelids, it is recommended to massage towards the rims of the eyelid, near the exit of the Meibomian glands. Carefully remove any crusts and deposits. To cleanse the eyelid margins, it is recommended that the lower eyelid should be gently pulled downward with one finger, or the upper eyelid should be gently pulled upward, so that the eyelid margin can be easily reached.
- Do not use the same wipe for both eyelids.
- Discard the wipe after use and use a new wipe for each eye.
- Avoid touching the inside of the eyelids or the eye surface with the wipe.
Tip: It might be helpful to place a warm compress or a reheatable mask on the closed eyelids before using NACLINO™. This facilitates the liquification of any existing hardened secretions from the tear glands and their subsequent easy removal. For more details, please consult the patient information on the wipe sachet or the box.
Is NACLINO™ suitable for contact lens wearers?
Yes, although it is recommended that contact lenses be inserted after NACLINO™ has been used.
Can NACLINO™ be used after surgery?
We strongly recommend following your doctor’s instructions for how often and for how long you should use NACLINO™ to clean the surrounding skin areas around your eye. In any case, we can only recommend dabbing NACLINO™ around the surrounding of the eye.
Using NACLINO™ as directed is a gentle way to keep eyelids and lashes clean and moist before and after procedures, while reducing the risk of irritation usually associated with soaps, preservatives and other irritants.
Following a proper lid hygiene routine is beneficial for patients; especially those who will undergo eye surgery. An excerpt from JM Sparrow highlights the importance of a proper light hygiene regimen:
“On-the-day cancellation of cataract surgery causes much distress for the patient and increases the burden on already stretched services, in addition to significant financial implications. A primary risk factor for endophthalmitis is thought to be local eyelid disease, with the majority of cases attributable to the patients’ own flora.1,2 Current guidelines therefore suggest that surgery is postponed pending disease control, usually with a lid hygiene regimen.3”
What is the appearance and fragrance of NACLINO™?
NACLINO™ wipes are individually-wrapped and pre-moistened, with no residue to rinse off. NACLINO™ saline lid wipes are larger than average face wipe that is comprised of a high-quality, stretchy, gauze-like material and is fragrance-free.
