    OCuSOFT® Background

    OCuSOFT Inc. is a privately-held eye and skin care company with an established reputation for innovation in eyelid hygiene.  Dedicated to addressing clinical needs with innovative solutions, OCuSOFT® strives to improve each patient's health by providing the highest quality products for not only eye care, but also skin care.


    In 1986, Nat G. Adkins, Jr., Co-Chairman of the Board, and Cynthia L. Barratt, CEO/Co-Chairman of the Board, founded a research, development and funding company under the name CYNACON Inc., and later formed OCuSOFT Inc., as a separate corporation to market over-the-counter ophthalmic products. The two corporations soon merged and are today known only as OCuSOFT®.


    Recognizing the need for an easy-to-use product to effectively manage eyelid irritations, OCuSOFT® introduced the first commercially available eyelid cleanser, OCuSOFT® Lid Scrub® in 1987. A pioneer in the industry, OCuSOFT® also introduced the first leave-on eyelid cleanser, the first topical anesthetic gel and the first supplement proven to enhance botulinum toxin injections.


    Today, OCuSOFT® is the #1 doctor recommended brand of eyelid cleansers and remains the preferred distributor of ophthalmic products and supplies by eye care professionals. OCuSOFT® accomplishes this designation with a highly trained sales force that calls on medical professionals nationwide and superior customer service. With unparalleled commitment, OCuSOFT® maintains its reputation as one of the most trusted and respected companies on ophthalmology.
