How Does It Work?
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction?
Normal meibomian glands allow moisture or tears to flow into the eye to prevent dryness and maintain adequate eye moisture. Dysfunctional meibomian glands often result from blockages and, as a result, cause the symptoms of dry eye.
What Should I Expect From the Treatment?
The applicators will sit above and below the eyes on the upper and lower lids. Once the device is activated, it will deliver uniform heat to the area while manually unclogging the glands as you naturally blink during the treatment process. The treatment typically takes 15 minutes; once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities.
