"I am writing to let you know how delighted I am with the Blephasteam Goggles. I have been using them now for over a year and they have transformed my life, previously I had to boil a kettle and use a flannel to treat my eye condition and it was a twice daily chore, I was forever getting eye infections and quite often had to visit an out of hours surgery to obtain pain relief.
Since using the goggles I have not had a single eye infection and using them is so much easier than before. I would strongly recommend the Blephasteam goggles to any Blepharitis sufferers and would like to thank Dr Fuller for designing such a fantastic product, and may I also take the opportunity to thank Margaret and staff at Spectrum Thea for all your ongoing support."
"I have had very severe dry eyes for seven years due to secondary Sjogren’s. I have silicone plugs in both eyes and continue to be seen by my Ophthalmologist every three months due to the severity of the discomfort and pain I experience. I have been prescribed every available dry eye preparation with very little relief and as a result just use eye drops every half hour. My Ophthalmologist suggested that I may wish to purchase a pair of Blephasteam goggles to see if I could obtain any palliative relief and consequently I purchased some from you approximately 3 weeks ago.
I now write to let you know how much they have improved my quality of life. The goggles provide approximately 30 minutes of full relief after use and make my eyes feel completely normal again which is something I never thought I would experience. My general eye health is also beginning to feel better. It is also the first treatment I have come across that is able to relieve the very severe intense pain that I get at least 3-4 times a week. The goggles have completely transformed my life. I feel that they have given me real hope for the future. Thank you very much."
I have been trying to find an answer to my eye problems for three years and seven months ago was actually diagnosed as having MGD.
By this time my eyesight was terrible, I could not use a computer (I work full time) could not read a book or newspaper, could not drive in sunlight or during the hours of darkness, my vision was very cloudy and I was experiencing extreme pain, I decided to purchase your Blephasteam product.
I first used my goggles on 11.1.12 having requested a week off work, within three days of using the goggles twice a day the results were astounding, my eyesight was clear and concise, it was like a miracle, I was driving around listening to my music and singing my heart out, I am so happy.
