MGD or meibomian gland dysfunction is one of the leading causes of dry eye disease. Our tears are comprised of many ingredients to keep our eye healthy and comfortable. The meibomian glands provide the tear’s oils that help lubricate the eye, and when these glands get blocked up, the surface of the eye no longer has enough protection from outside irritants leading to dry eye symptoms.
The heated eye pad is a comfortable, at-home solution to help unblock your glands and help ensure your tears have the necessary oil to continue to protect your eyes. By using this heated eye pad, based on your doctor’s instructions, you can prevent dry eye disease from progressing.
