Blinkeze External Lid Weights offer the physician a new approach to supportive eye care for the treatment of facial paralysis. The weight simply uses gravity to gently close the upper eyelid when the patient looks down, or when the eyelid muscle is relaxed.  MedDev offers Blinkeze External Lid Weights in a variety of skin tone colors to match a patient’s complexion.

Blinkeze External Lid Weights are manufactured from 99.99% pure tantalum, a dense metal with high biocompatibility.  The weight is provided in a treatment kit, which includes 100 double-sided hypoallergenic adhesive strips for attaching the weight, a mirror, and detailed instructions.


Note: This image may not be accurately showing the actual colors. Please consult with a physician for the correct color. Physicians may request the Blinkeze skin tone selector card.
