Dry eye is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, environmental conditions, and certain medical conditions. Symptoms of dry eye can include burning, stinging, itching, redness, and blurred vision.

One of the most effective treatments for dry eye is iLux®. iLux® is an in-office procedure that uses gentle heat and compression to unblock the meibomian glands. The meibomian glands produce oils that help to lubricate the eyes and prevent tears from evaporating too quickly. When the meibomian glands are blocked, the eyes can become dry and irritated.

The iLux® procedure is quick and painless. It takes about 10 minutes to complete, and there is no downtime required. Most patients experience significant relief from their dry eye symptoms after just one treatment.

How iLux® Works

The iLux® device uses LED-based heat to warm the inner and outer eyelids. This helps to melt the hardened oils that are blocking the meibomian glands. Once the oils are melted, the device applies gentle compression to the eyelids to express the oils.

Benefits of iLux®
iLux® offers a number of benefits over other dry eye treatments, including:

  • Non-invasive procedure.
  • Quick and painless.
  • Safe for most patients.
  • Effective for treating even severe cases of dry eye.
  • Provides long-lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.

Who is a Candidate for iLux®?

iLux® is a good treatment option for people who have dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). MGD is a condition in which the meibomian glands do not produce enough oil or produce oil that is too thick and sticky.

If you are struggling with dry eyes, know that you are not alone. There are a number of effective treatments available, including iLux®. If you are interested in learning more about iLux®, talk to your eye doctor. They can help you determine if iLux® is the right treatment for you and help you get started.
