TearCare® System – Treatment for Dry Eye
At Tuscaloosa EyeCare in Northport, Pickens County EyeCare in Reform, and Hale County EyeCare in Greensboro, we offer TearCare® as part of our comprehensive dry eye treatment program. TearCare® is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that helps relieve dry eye symptoms, such as redness, irritation, and a gritty feeling in your eyes.
What is TearCare® dry eye treatment?
TearCare® is a groundbreaking, FDA-approved treatment that promotes the natural production of oils in the tear film. It targets meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), one of the most common causes of dry eye.
The meibomian glands produce meibum, a crucial part of your tear film. Meibum helps prevent your tears from evaporating and keeps your eyes lubricated. When the meibomian glands get clogged, it affects meibum production, leading to MGD and dry eyes. TearCare® treatment uses heat and pressure to unclog the blocked glands, helping to improve meibum production and effectively manage dry eye.
