Meibomian glands are located in the eyelids and secrete oils into the tear film. The oils retard evaporation of the water component of our tearfilm. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) occurs when the glands produce abnormal oils. The abnormal thinkened oil secretions block the gland orifices causing inflammation. Eventually the blocked inflamed meibomian glands lead to their destruction and a reduction in the oil layer of the tearfilm. This abnormal oil layer exacerbates evaporative dry eye disease. In addition, inflammation of the glands contributes to the formation of styes and chalazions. I-Lux treats Meibomian Gland Dysfunction by the application of light-based heat and compression under direct visualization. I-Lux unblocks the glands encouraging the formation of healthy oils. Heating the lids liquifies the solidified oils and allows compression to express the contents of the glands. I-Lux is a painless office based procedure.
