TearCare System is an FDA-approved treatment for patients with dry eye due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Meibomian glands line the inside of our upper and lower eyelids and produce the oil layer on our tear film. A blocked or clogged meibomian gland prevents us from secreting this oil. When this crucial lipid layer is missing from our tear film due to a blockage, it results in our tears evaporating faster than normal and causing dry eye symptoms. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) can become progressively worse if left untreated.
