What is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)?
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.
How does E-Eye treat MGD?
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.
