Field of ophthalmology
There are many cosmetics that are applied in the vicinity of the eyes. These not only include beauty products such as mascara and eye shadow etc. but also eye creams and care formulations, including products intended for eyelids. It must always be assumed with such products that traces may come into contact with the eye.
Tests of products that are applied in the vicinity of the eyes must be such that they do not affect what is a particularly sensitive organ. Tests must therefore be able to determine even the most minimal changes occurring to the eyes and the skin around them.
When testing products designed to be used near the eyes, an ophthalmologist is available in an accompanying role. He monitors and assesses any irritations detected or any changes to the eye, mucous membranes or surrounding skin.
