NuLids: The Innovative, Doctor-Directed, At-Home Treatment for Dry Eye

NuLids Could Become the Gold Standard for Treating Dry Eye

In surgery, it’s all about outcomes. Treating dry eye disease prior to refractive surgery is absolutely necessary to ensure a good outcome. NuLids, a take-home eyelid hygiene device that massages and cleans the eyelid margins, gets patients ready for surgery surprisingly quickly. And, if you can help a patient with dry eye, says one doctor, you’ll have that patient for life.

Watch this short video to hear what three doctors have to say about what they and their patients have experienced with NuLids treatment.

Amid Rising Costs, Falling Reimbursements, NuLids Creates Revenue Stream for Eyecare Practices

Costs of goods, costs of location, costs of employees… all of those continue to rise. Yet in the medical industry, reimbursements are falling while costs are going up. That’s an unsustainable change. With products that patients buy on a regular basis because they need them, doctors can mitigate the challenge of decreasing reimbursements and increasing costs. NuLids, with its initial purchase cost and ongoing need for disposable soft tips, fills that need in the optometric practice. In this short video, Dr. Steve Klein discusses his treatment and business strategy and how NuLids is helping his practice close the reimbursement vs. cost gap.

“Treatment Strategy” Steve Klein, OD

NuLids Solves the Long-Term Eyelid Hygiene Challenge

Dr. Ahmad Fahmy
“Perhaps the greatest challenge in protecting the ocular surface is keeping the eyelid margins clean and the meibomian glands unclogged over the long term. The last 10 years have brought in-office treatments that work for a few months. But long-term success has been elusive, largely due to a lack of patient follow-up with cumbersome – and often cost-ineffective – daily eyelid hygiene regimens.” Click on the link below to read Dr. Ahmad Fahmy’s account of biofilm’s role in dry eye disease and a new, patient-friendly approach to eyelid hygiene using NuLids, a take-home device that patients use to massage and exfoliate their lid margins.

NuSight Medical Surveys its NuLids Customers

Product-to-market fit drives startup success. But how can you know if a new product fits your market?

After surveying over 100 start-ups, Ellis found that the magic number predictive of success was when 40+% of respondents answer: ‘disappointed or ‘very disappointed’.
