A lot of people with dry eye have significant discomfort, healthcare spending and time off work. A lot of this dry eye can be improved by unblocking the eyelid oil glands through daily eyelid warming. However, it is difficult to ensure that this is done. We use a method of digital monitoring that helps people to remember to do this preventive measure, even to be motivated through other linked incentives.
