Washing eyelids kindly

Votre question :

Hi doctor, is washing eyelids kindly with fingers harmful for eyes? What if that is repeated for many times a day?

Notre réponse :

Washing the eyes kindly is not detrimental if:

  • the washing movements are soft, and not exerted against the eyeball
  • the water used for washing and rinsing is clear.

I have commonly observed subtle corneal deformations which may be caused by repeated eye frictions, and it is probably better to develop a technique for cleaning the eyelids and removing the makeup which does not incur vigorous and extended massage of the corneas. It may be preferable to « rub » the eyelid against the orbital bones (around the eye) than use the globes as « cushions ».
