Experience relief from symptoms such as dryness and irritation caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
FOCUSING ON INNOVATION IN DRY EYE TREATMENT
Dry Eye is a chronic disease caused by deficiencies in the quantity and quality of meibum within the tear film that affects over 6 million people in the Canada. As sufferers struggle with symptoms such as dryness and irritation, many try to treat the problem themselves with artificial tears, but may still experience dry eye symptoms.
We know that 86% of dry eye sufferers are reported to have clinical signs of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD),6 and now, targeted treatment is here.
COMMON SYMPTOMS OF DRY EYE
- Trouble focusing
WHAT IS MGD?
MGD is a condition where the glands that help keep your tear film oily get blocked, causing your tears to evaporate more easily and drying your eyes out. MGD is a chronic condition and will worsen over time, if not treated.
iLUX® MGD TREATMENT SYSTEM
Fast and Effective
With your eye care professional by your side every step of the way, the iLUX® MGD treatment system administers therapeutic heat and then expresses the oil directly from the blocked meibomian glands. Now that the glands are unblocked, it will be easier for the oil to be released naturally.
Real Dry Eye Relief
The iLUX® device was shown to significantly reduce dry eye symptoms such as gritty eyes and irritation. In a clinical study, patients’ meibomian gland scores were three times better at two weeks post-treatment and four times better at four weeks, compared to baseline.
Your eye care professional assesses your eyelids to determine the treatment zones.
Your eyelid is held between the soft, biocompatible pads of the iLUX® device’s Smart Tip Patient Interface. For comfort, you may keep your eyes closed.
Therapeutic, light-based heat will begin to warm the blocked glands to a safe temperature to help soften and release the oil. The meibum melts and your doctor has the ability to apply additional heat or pressure dependent on your needs.
Through compression, the oil is expressed from the glands and treatment is complete
