New Treatments for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. TheraLife Can Help.

eye check up
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction ( MGD)also known as posterior blepharitis, is quite common among people with dry eyes.  MGD is important to treat for several reasons.

1. Improve quality of life .
2.The abnormal lipids produced by MGD patients have a negative effect on the quality of the tear film, making tears easy to evaporate, which produces  discomfort and visual acuity problems

The typical treatments for MGD includes eye lid hygiene- using lid scrub, hot compresses twice a day, 10 minutes each time; the use of topical anti-biotics to keep eye infections away.

More recently, there is a new instrument on the market for unclogging meibomian glands - Thermal Pulsation System.

Thermal Pulsation treatment is clinically proven with sustained results. In a clinical study about 79% of patients reported an improvement in overall dry symptoms after a single Theramal Pulsation treatment. Depending on the severity of your specific condition and your response to treatment, you may need to repeat the Thermal Pulsation treatment periodically as your symptoms return over time.

The Challenge of Thermal Pulsation Treatment

Theramal Pulsation uses pulsed heat to dislodge and melt away the thick clogs in the meibomian glands.  However, people who receive this treatment may need to repeat it again incurring considerable out of pocket expenses.
The Thermal Pulsation + TheraLife Solution

The basic problem of MGD is  inflammation caused by dry eyes shut down tear secretion glands.  As long as dry eye symptoms persist, inflammation continues to shut down tear secretion glands.  This becomes a vicious cycle.

TheraLife Eye  normalizes and restores normal functions to tear secretion and interrupts this vicious cycle.  Once tear film becomes balanced, eyes are no longer dry, and more able to prevent MGD from happening again.

healthyeyebuttonUse TheraLife Eye after LipiFlow to restore normal functions to tear secretion glands which can produce balanced sustainble tears for soothing dry eye relief.  Continue to use Hot Compresses to keep the meibomian glands open and flowing.
