iLux®: Relief for Dry Eye
For patients who have been diagnosed with evaporative dry eye / meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), our iLux® treatment may provide great relief. This quick and comfortable treatment involves applying precisely-controlled heat using an LED light and compression to the eyelids. This raises the temperature of the eyelids to ultimately melt the blockages in the meibomian glands. Our doctors continually monitor the temperature of the eyelids and pressure levels so the precise amount of therapeutic heat and compression is applied. We also have the ability to view the blocked meibomian glands during the treatment process. Every treatment is completely tailored for each unique patient.

- Improves the signs and symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD)
