Zocular Eyelid System Treatment - ZEST

ZEST is an in-practice deep cleansing treatment for dry eye, meibomian gland dysfunction, demodex and inflammation.

The Zocular Eyelid System Treatment (ZEST) uses patented Zokrex technology and activated natural Okra polysaccharide complexes for immediate improvements in eye comfort.

The ZEST procedure is a natural approach using Okra plant complex to gently exfoliate and restore the natural state of the eyelids. The ZocuSwab foam applicators are used to lift debris from the eyelid margin to remove the biofilm that contributes to inflammation, redness and dry flaky skin. By cleaning the eyelid margins, they remove the debris and biofilm that may be blocking the meibomian glands, allowing the release of oils onto the eye.

The treatment takes just minutes and employs advanced biochemistry to gently lift biofilm without causing tissue damage. No topical anaesthetic is required and patients experience immediate clinical improvement.

Ophthalmologist and chemist Peter Pham, Chief Executive of Zocular, flew in from the US for the 100% Optical show in London and demonstrated the kit on TV’s Dr Hilary Jones.

ZEST offers dry eye sufferers a convenient and low-cost treatment which shows a dramatic improvement in patients with dry eye and ocular discomfort. It is simple to perform but yields unrivalled clinical results, Peter Pham emphasised.

Airedale Opticians now offer ZEST. The procedure itself is very simple to carry out, chair time is minimal and the results are instant. 

The benefit of the Okra-based gel is the healing and anti-inflammatory properties that this polysaccharide has, without the stinging sensation that other treatments have. Instantly making your eyes feel more comfortable.
