FT. WAYNE, IN – 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.
“With COVID-19 still a top concern, keeping salons clean and sanitized has to be a top priority to protect your guests and your business,” stated Eye Pro President, Brenda Fishbaugh. “Many salon owners and staff have tanners who don’t want to wear eye protection or believe they can wear disposable eye protection multiple times. Re-using disposable eye protection is NOT allowed by the FDA and we can provide you proof to share with your tanners. If you’re a salon owner or manager, we can send you our “One Time Use” letter indicating that our disposables are licensed as a Class One Medical Product. Since disposable eye protection cannot be properly cleaned, it can only be worn ONCE,” Fishbaugh continued.
“COVID and the flu are really impacting our daily lives this season, so extra precautions are an essential part of today’s service business environment. Offering disposables is an easy way to make sure tanners use CLEAN eyewear for every session,” explained Office Manager, Jackie DeWald. “However, tanners need to understand that disposable eye protection is in the same product class as cotton balls and tongue depressors, and you surely wouldn’t use a tongue depressor more than once.”
“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 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 guests are protected from UV rays, but explaining the FDA position on disposable eye protection as a Class One Medical Product is equally important for salons and tanners alike,” she concluded.
To receive Eye Pro’s “One Time Use” letter, email WinkEase@WinkEase.com and it will be emailed to you, along with tips on how to keep your tanners using the freshest eye protection available.
