EFFECTIVE & AFFORDABLE MGD THERAPY EXTENDS BEYOND YOUR OFFICE
As a leading cause of dry, irritated eyes, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is not only one of the most commonly treated conditions in eye care today, it continues to be one of the most challenging to address. While thermal pulsation procedures such as LipiFlow are effective in-office treatments, MGD is a persistent condition, and there hasn’t been a clear-cut solution for physicians to recommend to their patients as part of a daily, at-home maintenance regimen. Until now. Meet ExpressTears, an effective, affordable, and easy-to-use tool that enables patients to express their own meibomian glands from home in a matter of minutes. ExpressTears can help restore healthy tear function by warming and secreting backed up oil onto the surface of the tear film. This reusable device was specially designed to contour around the curvature of the eye, and it comes equipped with disposable foam pads in an easy-to-carry storage tin.
WHEN USED AS DIRECTED, EXPRESSTEARS WILL HELP:
- Improve tear production & tear break up time (TBUT)
- Express clogged oil from the meibomian glands
- Evacuate meibum onto the surface of the tear film
- Relieve symptoms of dry eye and reduce inflammation
- Make the eyes feel clean, soothed & moisturized
WITH EXPRESSTEARS, MAINTAINING HEALTHY MEIBOMIAN GLANDS IS EASY AS 1, 2, 3…
EXPRESSTEARS PILOT STUDY RESULTS
A pilot study was conducted with a group of people with mild-to-moderate cases of MGD to determine whether ExpressTears could effectively treat their MGD-induced dry eye.
Using some of the most trusted clinical markers, each participant’s dry eye was measured on day one (baseline), after 2 weeks of use (mid-point), and after 4 weeks of use (final visit).
Here were the key improvements reported at the mid-point and final visit testing in comparison to baseline measurements:
RECOMMENDING A 2-IN-1 SOLUTION:
Stopping MGD and other sources of lid margin irritation starts with effective eyelid hygiene. That’s why so many doctors choose to pair ExpressTears with Blephadex® Foam as an integrated part of a patient’s daily treatment regimen.
WHEN USED WITH EXPRESSTEARS, BLEPHADEX® EYELID CLEANSER WILL HELP:
- Cleanse and moisturize the lid margin
- Kill Demodex mites and remove bacteria
- Reduce inflammation and provide soothing relief
“Solutions like warm compresses can be effective, but at the end of the day, they’re only treating the symptoms for a short period of time. They warm the oils that are clogging up the glands, but that doesn’t improve the flow. ExpressTears warms the oils, gets them moving again, and gently expresses them back to a healthy, functional flow, which helps address the underlying causes of MGD in a more sustainable way.”
