The Wheat Bags heat pack for the Eyes is a very popular item for sufferers of dry eyes or similar conditions such as Blepharitis.

It is a small kidney shaped pack that is light in weight and contains just the right amount of wheat to retain heat for up to an hour or more.

Heat loss During Testing

When heated to the recommended guidelines (at 1000w), we tested the product fully and found the following:

  • The Eye heat pack reached a maximum 49 degrees which a gentle heat for sensitive eyes.
  • That it retained a useful heat for 1 hour depending on the conditions of use.
  • After 1 heating cycle and 1 hour of continual use, this microwave heat pack had only lost 39% of its peak temperature heat which is excellent when it comes to heat loss after warming in the microwave

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 160gms.

HOW THE HEAT PACK OFFER WORKS : Order x1 of this product and you will automatically get one extra free of charge, order x2 and you get x2 free and so on.

REMOVABLE COVER OPTION.  If you choose to have a removable cover for cleaning, the cover will be made in the fabric and colour of your choice with the inner heat pack being made from natural cotton.  Please note that the optional fastenings, if selected with the removable cover option will be attached to the inner eye-shaped heat pack and the elastic fastenings will come through special openings in the rectangular shaped cover.

Blepharitis.  You know when you have Blepharitis when your eyes feel sore and itchy along the eyelids. You may also see white flakes (like dandruff) sticking to your eyelashes. Blepharitis is a chronic condition. At root cause is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction - failure of the oil secreting glands along the eyelids to secrete the vital oily component of healthy tears. It can last years as doctors/optometrists and their patients struggle to overcome it.

There have been many difficulties using detergent, antibiotic, preservative and hot flannel based treatments. They can be frustratingly ineffective and detergents de-stabilise the already weakened tear film by destroying its essential oily layer.

Today, the most significant improvement in treating blepharitis is to clear the waxy blockages in the Meibomian Glands and free the vital oily tear component.

The use of warmth on the eyes can be used as a blepharitis eyelid treatment which is natural, pleasant to use and is performed as a regular routine that removes the blockages that are the underlying cause of Blepharitis and its related eye conditions.

The above information on Blepharitis was taken from the internet.  Clear Prospects Ltd recommends you consult your doctor before using wheat packs for your treatment though we would appreciate any comments you have on the above in order to share the results with new customers we have seeking an easment of the condition.

 

 

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please click on the “Instructions” tab online or the labelling on the product on arrival.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools. Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a burnt smell, or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On some of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are designed to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “scrunch” up the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

TO USE COLD :

  • Wrap the pack in a plastic bag (to keep it clean).
  • Place in the FRIDGE for 1-3 hours.
  • Remove from plastic bag before use.

DO NOT PLACE THIS ITEM IN THE FREEZER to use on the eyes.

    Very comfortable Bought these to treat blepharitis/ dry eye as diagnosed by my optician. Seem to be doing the job in conjunction with Viscotears and in addition - it's very relaxing spending up to 10 minutes with a warm eye mask in place!

    Dry eyes My optometrist recommended using this eye mask because my vision was being affected by dry eyes causing murky tears. I used this mask for three weeks and then had another appointment to check the results. The optometrist was very impressed with the improvement and I will continue to use this mask on a daily basis.

    Wheat Bags Eye Mask My eye surgeon suggested that I buy this to ease the symptoms of meibomian gland disfunction. I ordered the product on a Thursday and despite being quoted 4 to 7 days they duly arrived on Monday morning. The instructions for warming them in the microwave could not be clearer. I use them twice a day and it is too early to say if they have cured the problem.

    Very soothing My optometrist recommended Wheaty bags as my tears had become a bit murky affecting my eyesight. I use them twice a day and it has made a remarkable difference. I also gave one to my son who also suffers from dry eyes and he is very impressed. Keep up the good work and many tanks.

    Eye mask useful for blepharitis The eye mask in useful in treating blepharitis being effective in warming the lids and easy to use. It is worth paying extra for the removable cover so that it can be washed frequently but personally I would rather pay less for the item and just receive one bag. I don't need two, they last for ages.

    Just the job Having been diagnosed with Blepharitis (dry eye) part of the treatment involves the use of a warm compress to the eyes several times a day. The Eye Mask Heat Pack helps to simplify the whole process and a good excuse to sit down with your eyes closed for a few minutes. Many thanks WheatyBags.
