Dry eye is a chronic disease that affects over 30 million people in the U.S. and is caused by deficiencies in the quality and quantity of the tear film. Those suffering with dry eye often struggle with symptoms such as redness, irritation, tearing, and blurry vision. Many try to treat the condition themselves with artificial tears, but continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms, sometimes interfering with their lives.
A large portion of Dry Eye is due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) We’re excited to introduce a revolutionary treatment for dry eye – the iLUX® MGD Treatment System.
What is MGD?
MGD occurs when the meibomian glands are blocked and unable to release enough of the essential oily layer of the tear film that coats and protects the front surface of your eye. Without enough of this essential oil, the tear film evaporates, leading to chronic dry eye.
How is MGD Diagnosed?
During your consultation, our Doctors will run advanced diagnostic testing to discover the root cause of your dry eye. If MGD is detected, the iLUX treatment may be recommended.
Its Fast and Effective
iLUX® has been shown to significantly reduce dry eye symptoms. The treatment lasts just a few minutes per eye. MGD is a chronic disease and is usually necessary to have ongoing treatments. Our goal is to give you Dry Eye relief in between treatments
