Treat the Leading Cause of Dry Eye with iLux®
If you have Dry Eye symptoms like eye irritation or blurry vision, it may be due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, or MGD.
Evaporative Dry Eye disease, primarily caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), occurs when the meibomian glands in your eyelids don't function properly. Meibum is an oily layer that works with your tear film to coat the front surface of your eye in a protective layer of moisture. When it is blocked, it can lead to poor quality tear film resulting in symptoms of dryness, discomfort, and fluctuating vision.
What the Systane® iLux® Device Does
Our doctors at Tempe Eyecare Associates, with the help of the Systane® iLux® device, can diagnose MGD by simply pushing on your eyelids to gauge the quantity and quality of the oil that your glands produce and recommend treatment options.
Systane® iLux® device MGD Thermal Pulsation System works to unblock the blocked meibomian glands to clear any obstructions and restore healthy tear film. Treatment only takes 8–12 minutes for both eyes.
