Millions Suffer From Dry Eyes

More than 16 million Americans live with dry eye syndrome, a chronic condition causing irritation and discomfort. This condition occurs due to a lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye. 

Dry eye syndrome may only be a slight nuisance for some people, but others may experience significant inflammation and other symptoms

If you have dry eyes, we can help. Many of our Center For Sight doctors have specialty training in severe dry eye and ocular surface disease.

The Center For Sight doctors are here to assist you with your dry eye needs. Dr. De Rojas, Dr. Soscia, and Dr. Mathews have specialty training in treating severe dry eye and ocular surface diseases.  Please request your appointment or contact us to book a consultation.

What Is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction? 

The meibomian glands line the margins of your eyelids, where they release an oily fluid that enhances your tear film and slows the evaporation of your tears. This oily fluid is essential for helping your tears keep the cornea lubricated for clear vision. 

When these glands become blocked or plugged, it is known as meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). This condition causes your tears to evaporate more quickly due to the tear film lacking the oil needed to function at its best. Besides faster evaporation, greater friction occurs between the cornea and eyelids, leading to dry eye symptoms. 

MGD is a common cause of dry eyes, and restoring these glands to their optimal state can help improve your quality of life. 

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Treatment

At Center For Sight, we offer the latest eye care treatments and technology to ensure you’re seeing your best. We have several treatment options available for adult patients with MGD, also known as evaporative dry eye.

iLux Treatment

iLux treatment helps warm and compress your eyelids, gently releasing blocked or plugged oil in the meibomian glands. After assessing the appropriate treatment zone, your doctor will place the iLux device and begin your procedure. The warm compression pads help painlessly express oil in under 15 minutes.

LipiFlow is a thermal pulsation system that improves meibomian gland function through gentle massage and heat. After receiving numbing eye drops and placing the device, LipiFlow applies therapeutic heat and pressure to remove gland obstructions.

Additional Dry Eye Treatments

Besides MGD-focused treatments, Center For Sight offers a variety of dry eye syndrome treatments, including:
