What is TearCare?
TearCare is a new and cutting edge treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Blepharitis. It is a wearable eyelid technology device that administers gentle heat directly to the meibomian glands to liquefy the meibum, remove blockages, and stimulate tear production.
TearCare: Relief for Chronic Dry Eye
Do your eyes burn, sting, itch or feel sore? Do you use artificial tears and over-the-counter medications for relief, but still experience pain or redness in your eyes? If so, there’s a good chance you may have Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), the leading cause of Dry Eye Disease.
The TearCare System is one of the latest treatments on the market and offers relief to those with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, Dry Eyes, and Blepharitis. At Vision Boutique, we’re proud to have it in our arsenal of advanced treatments for dry eye syndrome.
How does TearCare work?
TearCare includes two flexible eyelid devices that are placed on your upper and lower eyelids. They’re made of a soft and flexible material that conforms to your eye’s natural shape. Unlike other treatment methods, TearCare allows the patient’s eyes to remain open and blinking throughout the procedure.
The entire process typically lasts for 2 ½ minutes and takes place on site at Vision Boutique. After TearCare, your eye doctor may manually clear away obstructions released from the meibomian glands.
