When your eyes start to get scratchy and red, they can disrupt your comfort and your productivity. If this happens to you, you might be dealing with dry eye disease.

Dry eyes can have a few causes, and your optometrist can diagnose the correct one with an eye exam, but many times it’s because the meibomian glands in your eyelids are clogged. Your optometrist can help unclog meibomian glands and promote healthy tears by clearing biofilm from your eyelids or melting the blockages with a range of effective treatments.

Your meibomian glands line your eyelids and make meibum, an oil essential to your tear health. You see, tears are more than simply water; they’re 3 layers of enzymes, lipids, metabolites, and electrolytes that keep your eyes comfortable and healthy.
