LipiFlow Treatment For Dry Eye In New York City
The Most Advanced and Effective Doctor-Led Procedure for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
Although not so well-known except amongst eye doctors, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a very common eye condition and the most common cause of severe Dry Eye Syndrome. It can be caused by a number of factors, such as age, ethnicity, corrective lens use, high cholesterol, bacterial infection, and even some medications. MGD can range in severity from relatively minor to completely debilitating to your quality of life.
What Is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction?
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is a condition caused by a blockage of the meibomian glands, which results in tear evaporation. The meibomian glands are a part of the eye, located by the inner eyelid. These glands secrete oil, which keeps your tears moist and prevents them from evaporating. When the meibomian glands are blocked or have some kind of irregularity, then an insufficient amount of oil is produced. This is known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD.
