What is TearCare and How Does it Work?

TearCare is a cutting-edge and non-invasive treatment that targets the root cause of MGD – the Meibomian glands. These tiny glands in your eyelids are responsible for producing the essential oils that keep your tears from evaporating too quickly. In MGD, these glands may become clogged or dysfunctional, leading to dry, irritated eyes. TearCare uses a gentle and precise application of heat to melt the hardened oils, allowing them to flow freely, thus improving tear quality and relieving dry eye symptoms.

Before Your TearCare Treatment

Before coming in for your TearCare treatment, there are a few simple steps to ensure you get the most out of your session. Avoid wearing eye makeup or contact lenses on the day of your appointment, as this will allow for a clear and comfortable treatment. Additionally, inform our team of any eye conditions or allergies you may have, as this information will help us tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

During Your TearCare Treatment

On the day of your TearCare treatment, our eye care professionals will make you feel at ease as they guide you through the process. First, small devices, custom-fitted to your eyelids, will be gently placed to deliver the precise and controlled heat necessary to unblock the Meibomian glands. Then one of our doctors will numb your eyes and unblock the Meibomian glands with a simple procedure.  The treatment is quick, efficient, and typically well-tolerated.

After Your TearCare Treatment

Following the TearCare treatment, you can resume your daily activities with little to no downtime. Some patients may experience mild sensitivity or redness, but this should resolve within a short time. You may notice an improvement in your dry eye symptoms immediately after the procedure, but it may take a few weeks for the full effects to be realized.

Treatment Frequency and Aftercare

TearCare is a long-lasting solution, and treatments can typically be repeated every 4-6 months, depending on your individual needs. To maximize the benefits of TearCare and maintain your eye health, it is crucial to practice good eyelid hygiene and follow any post-treatment instructions provided by our eye care experts.
