We are Dry Eye Syndrome Specialists

Q&A with Our Doctors | What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

What is MGD?

MGD stands for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, and it’s responsible for the majority of dry eyes cases out there. The meibomian glands are responsible for producing lipids, the oils necessary for maintaining the necessary amount of lubrication for your eyes. When these glands are blocked, malfunctioning, or dying off, severe dry eyes can set in.

What is LipiFlow?

 

Of all the various causes of dry eyes, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD is by far the most common cause and often mistreated. While only 14% of dry eyes are aqueous in nature that can be treated with medicated drops, roughly 86% of dry eyes are evaporative dry eye cases that necessitate a completely different form of treatment.

Dry eye is a condition affecting the front surface of the eye that is caused by either a low volume of tears or because the quality of your tears is poor. Your natural tears provide moisture & nourishment to the front surface of the eye. Any change in the normal chemistry of your tears can start contributing to dry eye issues.
