iLux, is an in-office treatment that provides fast and effective
relief to MGD (Meibomian Gland Disease). MGD is the most common cause of Dry Eye which effects 30 million people in the United States. Dry eye is a chronic disease caused by deficiencies in the quantity and quality of meibum within the tear film.
iLux MGD treatment device incorporates the innovative Smart tip Patient Interface to deliver treatment to the blocked meibomian glands.

When the glands are unblocked, it will be easier for the oil to be released naturally, allowing the eye to produce better quality tears.
