  1. Happy to answer any question somebody might have!

    1. Hi Amanda, how long after starting to use the device did you notice a difference with your dry eyes. I recently bought Nulids and it has been a little over a week and so far I haven't seen a huge difference, but I am going to continue using it in the hopes that I will. Thanks for answering.

      1. thank you for asking! It took a few months to see a difference. The main thing I noticed was my eyelids weren’t as itchy. Also, it helps decrease your chances of blepharitis and Demodex mites. I hope this helps.

    2. Thanks for the reply, it does help. I have been using the Nulids for about 3 weeks and I do like the way that it feels. I also have something called Zocushield, which is an advanced eye gel that has really helped my problem a lot, as well as warm compresses twice daily. The only challenging thing about the Nulids is I really do not want to spend the money on new tips every month, so I am thinking of soaking the tips in hydrogen peroxide to disinfect them instead in order to reuse, but even that, I am a little hesitant about. I don't want to get an eye infection. It is possible that after using up the first month's tips that I may discontinue using Nulids if I find that the Zocushield alone is still working for me. I like how the Nulids feels and no doubt I am sure as a person continues using, it does help, but the cost of new tips could be prohibitive for me.
