NovaBay launches illuminated mirror for home use


The device was designed to allow consumers to better view lids and lashes

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals has announced the availability of its i-Chek illuminated eye examination mirror on Amazon. The i-Chek device is a handheld mirror that features 10x magnification. It is specifically designed for twice-daily home use to magnify the eyes, eyelashes, and eyelids., according to the company.

It can also be used to evaluate lipase saponification, where the lipid layer of tear film separates into soap due to bacterial action associated with blepharitis.

According to the company, i-Chek was designed as a companion product to NovaBay’s Avenova antimicrobial lid and lash spray to provide personalized before-and-after looks at Avenova’s effectiveness. It works by using 4 light-emitting diode (LED) lights to produce a bright and clear view.

“Those afflicted with bacterial dry eye can now examine their own eyes and view for themselves the buildup of scruff and debris on their lids and lashes before using Avenova,” says Justin Hall, president and CEO of NovaBay. “Then after applying our spray, they can visualize what they are feeling and the successful elimination of those conditions.”

The i-Chek handheld mirror is available for $29.99 on Amazon
