Systane iLux2

Address the root cause of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

The iLux 2 is a small handheld device that allows our team to comfortably heat your eyelid glands, causing the clogged oil in those glands to melt. We can then use the device to gently express the oil from the glands.

Every time you blink, a protective layer of moisture called tear film coats the front surface of your eye. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) happens when glands within your eyelids get blocked or aren’t functioning to their fullest and negatively impact the tear film. That can lead to signs and symptoms of Dry Eye.

With Systane iLux2, it’s possible to address the root cause of your MGD. The goal of MGD treatment is to gently unblock these glands, restoring healthy tear film and helping you quickly feel better and see better. Systane iLux2 actually lets you see what’s been blocking your glands, causing you discomfort.

Gentle Non-invasive Treatment

The Systane iLux2 MGD Thermal Pulsation device can be used to deliver gentle warming and pressure directly to your eyelids to unblock meibomian glands. Treatment of both eyes only takes approximately 8-12 minutes. Find relief from your dry eye symptoms, book an appointment at Virginia Eyecare Center today.
