What is MGD?
Every time you blink, a protective layer of moisture called tear film coats the front surface of your eye. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction happens when glands within your eyelids get blocked or aren't functioning to their fullest and negatively impact the tear film. That can lead to signs and symptoms of Dry Eye.
With Systane® iLux2® , it's possible to address the root cause of your MGD. The goal of MGD treatment is to gently unblock these glands, restoring healthy tear film and helping you quickly feel better and see better. Systane® iLux2® actually lets you see what’s been blocking your glands, causing you discomfort.
How MGD affects meibomian glands:
Healthy Meibomian Glands
Healthy meibum is clear and adequate and should be assessed by your eye doctor on an annual basis.
Meibomian Glands With Moderate MGD
The more severe the blockage of your meibomian glands, the thicker and cloudier the meibum appears.
Meibomian Glands With Severe MGD
Severely blocked meibomian glands, if left untreated, can result in decreased meibomian gland functionality
