Specialized treatment options

TearCare®

MGD (Meibomian Gland Disease) is the leading cause of dry eye disease. The TearCare® System is a personalized open-eye in-office procedure designed to target the underlying cause of your dry eye.

TearCare® fits comfortably to the unique shape of your eyelids and applies therapeutic heat to liquefy the stagnant oils in the glands of your eye.

After 15 minutes of therapeutic heat the eye doctor will remove the obstruction and allow new oil to begin flowing.

Lipiflow®

Lipiflow® is another specialized procedure we offer for the treatment of MGD. After an initial anesthetic eye drop, Meibomian glands are heated and then gently massaged to loosen the oil trapped within the glands. The automated treatment helps clear the gland obstruction and restore function.
