First, we need to understand what our Meibomian glands do for us. They are located at the rim of our upper and lower eyelids, producing lipids (known as meibum) to lubricate and prevent evaporation of our tears.
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) has been found to cause 45-65% of dry eyes symptoms. It is also the most common cause of dry eye disease (DED), but yet, usually left undiagnosed!
MGD happens when Meibomian glands do not secret sufficient meibum to lubricate our tear film, or hypersecretion of meibum occurs. Hypersecretion happens during infrequent blinking while using digital devices or reading. Infrequent blinking causes less lubrication across the eyes, thus stimulating Meibomian glands to produce excessive meibum, resulting in blockage of glands overtime.
E-Eye does not directly affect the Meibomian glands. It uses patented Intense Regulated Pulse Light (IRPL) which are adjusted to stimulate our nerves and unblock the Meibomian glands to return to their normal functions.
To see good results and achieve high success, 3 treatments are needed. 86% of patients do get better!
