Dry Eye

Dry eyes is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren't able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. Tears can be inadequate for many reasons. For example, dry eyes may occur if you don't produce enough tears or if you produce poor-quality tears. Dry eyes feel uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, your eyes may sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours. Treatments for dry eyes may make you more comfortable. These treatments can include lifestyle changes and eye drops. You are likely to need to take these measures indefinitely to control the symptoms of dry eyes.

    MiboThermoflow Device

    The MiBothermoflow device is a new medical device that offers an alternative form of therapy for blepharitis and dry eyes. Doctors have found that only 12 minutes of treatment per eye can be enough to gently massage the margins of the eyes and unclog the Meibomian glands. This can mean that the secretions blocking the glands are liquefied so that oils can once again flow freely, restoring a more balanced tear film. Positive results can even be achieved after no more than one session, though additional sessions are often recommended. MOST COMMONLY ADVISED METHOD OF TREATMENT.
