TearCare system works safely and effectively to treat MGD & dry eye disease.
What is dry eye disease?
Dry eye disease is more common than you think. More than 100 million people worldwide suffer from the scratchy, gritty feeling associated with the disease. The most common form of dry eye is when your tears evaporate too quickly. This can happen when the glands in your eyelids are not producing enough oil (“meibum”). The oil on the tears prevent the tear from evaporating too quickly.
What is TearCare?
TearCare is an open-eye procedure designed to target the underlying cause of evaporative dry eye. By applying heat directly to the eyelid, TearCare melts the blockage within your Meibomian glands. Your doctor then gently presses the eyelid to clear melted meibum. TearCare is personalized to the unique shape of your eyes. Patients have reported that the warmth during the procedure is comfortable.
