NovaBay unveils new lid, lash cleanser

May 3, 2014

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals has unveiled a new eye-care product, the i-Lid Cleanser.

 

Emeryville, CA-NovaBay Pharmaceuticals has unveiled a new eye-care product, the i-Lid Cleanser.

The product, which was introduced at last week’s American Society of Cataract/Refractive Surgery annual symposium and congress in Boston, aims to help patients with irritation of their eyelids by cleaning the lids and lashes, removing debris and microorganisms that lead to vision problems.

The cleanser has already been cleared by the FDA through its 510(k) process.

“I believe ophthalmologists and optometrists will find that NovaBay’s innovative (cleanser) offers significant advantages over currently marketed products which are merely ‘detergent based’ lid and lash cleansers, which offer little to no benefit,” said Ron Najafi, PhD, chief executive officer and chairman of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals.
