TearCare® is an innovative Dry Eye procedure that targets the blocked meibomian glands in your eyelids that produce oils to keep your tears healthy. When these glands become blocked or have reduced function, your tears may evaporate more quickly. Unblocking these glands with The TearCare® System can help restore their function and stabilize the tear film. This may improve the quality of tears and reduce symptoms like dryness, gritty or scratchy sensations, blurry vision, and watery eyes.
At your appointment, we will determine whether your dry eye symptoms are caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) and would benefit from the use of The TearCare® System.
Taking care of your vision means more than finding the right glasses or contacts. We also want to check the health of your tears to determine if you have dry eye. The TearCare System is a dry eye treatment offered at Lakeland Ophthalmology that targets the root cause of dry eye. Call us at (973) 331-0300 to schedule an appointment today.
