Eye Massage Q & A

by Kambiz Silani, OD

What is meibomian gland dysfunction?

You have about 25-40 meibomian glands in your upper eyelid and another 20-30 in your lower eyelid. Their job is to produce and secrete an oily substance onto the surface of your eyes. The oily secretion, meibum, prevents your tears from evaporating too quickly.

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) occurs when the glands become blocked with meibum, so your eyes don’t get enough protective oil. MGD is the leading cause of dry eye syndrome. It’s also associated with blepharitis, or an inflamed eyelid.

What are the symptoms of dry eye?

Dry eyes often develop when you don’t produce enough tears. But when you have MGD, you can have a normal supply of tears and still end up with dry eyes due to tear evaporation.

Dry eyes affect your vision, make it painful to wear contact lenses, and negatively impact daily life because irritated eyes interfere with every type of activity. Symptoms of dry eye include:

  • Stinging or burning
  • Scratchy or gritty feeling
  • Redness and irritation
  • Blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light

How does eye massage with MiBo Thermoflo help dry eyes?

MiBo Thermoflo is an innovative medical device designed to treat dry eyes by unblocking meibomian glands. The specially shaped MiBo eye pads are coated with ultrasound gel, then used to massage your closed eyelids.

While your eyelid is gently massaged, the MiBo Thermoflo emits constant and comfortable thermoelectric heat that’s warm enough to break down hardened oily clogs in meibomian glands. The combination of heat and massage clears the gland openings, so newly-produced meibum can be released.

What other conditions benefit from eye massage with MiBo Thermoflo?

MiBo Thermoflo therapy refreshes tired or strained eyes and heals blepharitis or styes. Common eye surgeries like LASIK and cataract removal sometimes cause tear film deficiency, an issue that can be treated or prevented with MiBo Thermoflo eye massage.

What should you expect from an eye massage session?

The treatment takes about 8-10 minutes per eye. During that time, patients often fall asleep because eye massage is relaxing, and the team at Beverly Hills Optometry are careful to create an “eye spa” experience complete with soothing background ambiance.

You’ll feel the difference after one eye massage. However, four treatments done over 28 days are recommended to restore optimal meibomian gland function. The results last 9-12 months for most patients, although some come back more frequently to relieve intense eye strain.
