I do want to let you know, it takes months before the tear staining is gone. You can see the tear stains that have stained the beard after the eye area was cleared in the last picture. I did lots of clipping of the eye area to remove the stains.

It is an EVERY DAY GROOMING JOB, sometimes twice a day! No skipping days! When the staining is pretty bad, you can actually see the red/orange junk on the pads.

The pads are just a maintenance tool to keep up with the eye cleaning, it does not magically remove the stains.

UPDATE! I switched Lola over to a higher quality food about two weeks ago and have been giving her plain organic non-fat yogurt every day AND I've been using the eye wipes and her eyes are SOO much better!! No more wet, drenched eye stain face!! There is still slight staining but SUCH an improvement!! I can finally see my girl's gorgeous face! I feel like she can also see so much better and I'm sure she must be more comfortable. Thank you again for all of your help and suggestions

Since Beau has a black face, tear staining hasn't been a big problem. However, his eyes used to tear and develop a lot of gook (or is that "gunk?". He is white around his mouth and that was very stained. I changed him to distilled water about 2 months ago and "voila" -- his tearing is greatly reduced and the white around his mouth is now white instead of reddish brown!!
