REAL DRY EYE RELIEF CAN BE YOURS
The iLUX® MGD Treatment System is an advanced technology used to treat patients with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, or MGD, which is a type of dry eye. Dry eye is a chronic eye disease caused by deficiencies in the tear film that affects over 30 million people in the United States. Of those 30 million, 86% suffer from Meibomian Gland Disease or MGD.
WHAT IS MGD?
Every time you blink, a protective layer of moisture called the tear film coats the front surface of your eye. An essential part of the tear film is an oily layer called meibum. MGD occurs when the meibomian glands that produce meibum get blocked or the secreted meibum is of poor quality which can lead to excessive evaporation of the tear film and dry eye symptoms.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
Dryness, grittiness, tired eyes, irritation, burning and sore eyes
HOW DOES ILUX® WORK?
iLUX® uses a light-based heat to apply therapeutic warming followed by expression to treat blocked glands and encourage the production of healthy oil. iLUX® is a portable and customizable procedure that allows us to tailor the treatment to each individual patient’s dry eye needs. The treatment is fast, only 8-12 minutes for the entire procedure.
