Normal Tear film (3 layers)

Outer Layer
Oily layer produced by secretions of the meibomian glands along your eyelids. It’s purpose is to reduce evaporation of tears.

Middle Layer

Inner Layer
Mucous layer produced by conjunctival goblet cells. It’s purpose is to hold the tears on the cornea.

Diagnostic Testing:

Tear Lab

Lipiflow

Thermal Pulsation Treatment

Treats a cause of dry eye, not just the symptoms! Applies heat and pressure to obstructed meibomian glands to decrease the risk of further atrophy and helps restore function for tear production.

A recent study found that 86% of patients with dry eye also had meibomian gland dysfunction or MGD.

If you have MGD, your eyelids are unable to produce the required quantity and quality of oils needed to sustain the outer layer of your tears which maintains healthy, lubricated eyes.

Like a dental cleaning, this treatment may be repeated every 4-6 months.

May be recommended by your doctor prior to cataract or lasik surgery to reduce the risk of infection and help improve visual outcome.
