FDA Allows Disposable Eyewear to Be Used Only ONCE

February 2017 – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in disposable eye protection for indoor tanning and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, Lash Room WINK-EASE and WINK-EASE Dark, is all about providing salon support.

“Do you have tanners that use the same pair of disposable eyewear over and over?”  asks Brenda Fishbaugh, EYE PRO president. “This is NOT allowed by the FDA and we can provide you proof to share with your tanners. If you’re a salon, we can send you our “One Time Use” letter on Eye Pro stationery indicating we are licensed as a Class One Medical Product.  Since disposable eye protection cannot be properly cleaned, it can only be worn ONCE,” Fishbaugh continued.

“Disposable eye protection is a Class One Medical Device, just like cotton balls and tongue depressors.  You surely wouldn’t use a tongue depressor more than once,” explains Jackie DeWald, Office Manager. “The medical adhesive used with disposable eye protection is meant to hold the product in place. Since the product cannot have the adhesive ‘cleaned’ after use, it is only authorized to be used once,” says DeWald. “You don’t want the dirt, makeup and oils from your face around your eyes time and time again,” she continued. “We take caring for tanners’ eyes very seriously and work with salons to make sure their clients are protected from UV rays, but explaining the FDA position on disposable eye protection as a Class One Medical Device is equally important for salons and tanners alike,” DeWald concluded.

To receive our “One Time Use” letter, email us at WinkEase@WinkEase.com and we will email our “One Time Use” letter to you, along with tips to keep your tanners using the freshest eye protection available.
