More Baby Boomers are experiencing eye discomfort as part of the natural aging process and the younger set feel dry, itchy or burning eyes as a result of more hours spent looking at digital devices.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
Thermalon, a leading provider of natural pain relief products, attended the annual Total Store Expo of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) to educate national and regional pharmacy chains about chronic dry eye and introduced new options for natural pain relief.
Sharon Burkart, Thermalon Director of Marketing, says retailers are seeing increased demand for dry eye treatment, as more people experience eye discomfort and search for a natural solution. “More Baby Boomers are experiencing eye discomfort as part of the natural aging process and the younger set feel dry, itchy or burning eyes as a result of more hours spent looking at digital devices,” says Burkart. Other common causes of dry eyes include taking certain prescription medications and a variety of disease states, such as diabetes.
Doctors recommend the application of moist heat to improve the flow of natural oils into the eyes. Thermalon is clinically proven to bring relief to dry, itchy and irritated eyes within minutes. The microwave-activated technology requires only 20 seconds in the microwave, followed by a 3-5 minute treatment. Thermalon has patented the technology and is the only eye compress that safely delivers doctor-recommended moist heat, for pain relief that is convenient, drug-free and environmentally responsible.
Burkart, says consumers are searching for non-pharmaceutical solutions for managing their pain, and cites findings in the Nielsen/NMI Health and Wellness in America Report that 89 percent of American consumers say taking personal responsibility for one's health is the best way to stay healthy. Retailers can serve the needs of this growing segment of health-focused seniors by offering natural self-care alternatives that are affordable, effective and easy to use.
The NACDS Total Store Expo was held August 23-26 at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. NACDS Total Store Expo provides opportunities for manufacturers and retailers within the chain community pharmacy industry to foster growth in healthcare services and consumer products.
