What is MGD?

The front surface of your eyes is coated with a protective layer of moisture called tear film every time you blink. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) occurs when the glands within your eyelids become blocked or underperform, leading to an imbalance in the tear film composition. This condition can result in the characteristic signs and symptoms associated with Dry Eye.MGD infographic.

iLux® Is Your Dry Eye Solution

A Gentle, Non-Invasive Solution for Dry Eyes

We’re excited to offer a cutting-edge treatment called iLux® for individuals suffering from dry eye discomfort. This innovative approach utilizes gentle, light-based heat therapy to warm the blocked glands in your eyelids to a safe temperature. By doing so, it helps soften and express the meibomian (oil) glands affected by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

The iLux® treatment directly targets the root cause of your dry eye symptoms – the blockage and stasis of oils within the meibomian glands. By restoring their proper function, this safe and effective therapy can help you regain relief and comfort from persistent dry eye issues.

Our team is thrilled to provide this advanced solution, empowering our patients to bid farewell to the discomfort and irritation of dry eyes once and for all.
