A Better Approach for Treating DED

Deliver the Long-lasting Relief You and Your Patients Need

Treating MGD-related DED Continues to Pose Challenges

Removing obstruction is critical

Most eye care professionals (ECPs) agree that obstruction removal should be the first-line treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).1

Patients don’t recognize that MGD is a chronic disease

Patients commonly stop self-administered treatments like warm compresses and drops when symptoms improve, allowing them to worsen once again.2

* In retrospective 1-month and 12-month analyses of the durability of response in the suppression of dry eye signs and symptoms after a single TearCare® treatment. Effectiveness was assessed in the 1-month study as mean change from baseline in tear break-up time (TBUT), Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI), total Meibomian Gland Secretion Score (MGSS), and corneal/conjunctival staining. Symptom severity was measured by Standard Patient Evaluation of Eye Dryness questionnaire (SPEED) score, and sign improvement was measured by mean meibomian gland expression (MGE) scores in the 12-month analysis. Findings were found to be clinically and statistically significant.
