There are two main forms of Dry Eye disease – are you treating the right one?
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Evaporative Dry Eye disease are real and common conditions that affect vision and quality of life. Unfortunately, since we haven’t been able to easily observe the underlying physiology of dry eye disease, it’s been difficult to identify and treat effectively – leaving sufferers frustrated and unable find long-term relief for dry eye symptoms.
Now, with breakthrough technology, it’s possible to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye: a blockage of eyelid glands called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. These blocked eyelid glands result in a deficiency in the tear film oil, which is responsible for preventing the tears from evaporating too quickly. If you have blocked eyelid glands and in turn “Evaporative Dry Eye”, there is a clinically-proven treatment performed in your doctor’s office that may help you maintain a normal lifestyle by reducing dry eye discomfort.
