If your eyes are dry you’re not alone:

Many people, especially this time of year, suffer from “dry eyes”. There can be many reasons for dry eye, including hormonal changes and aging as well as a number of other causes. By far the number one cause of dry eye is a condition called meibomian gland dysfunction or MGD. In fact approximately 86% of patients with dry eye have MGD. The meibomian glands line the upper and lower eyelids and secrete oils that are important to a healthy tear film. If these glands become deficient, as they often may, the tear evaporates quickly and may cause a dry, scratchy and burning sensation. While MGD is chronic and progressive, if caught early it can be treated by a number of means. One treatment includes a procedure called LipiFlow, a non-invasive procedure which uses the precise application of heat and gentle massage to the inside of the eyelids which can restore secretion of these essential oils and help relieve the symptoms of dry eye. If you have concerns about chronic dry eye please discuss it with one of our doctors next time you’re in our office.
