TearCare is a wearable, software-controlled technology, similar to a high-tech warm compress. It is fully customizable and allows your optometrist to provide tailored delivery of electrothermal energy to the meibomian glands.
The heat allows for blockages in the meibomian glands to liquefy, which can then be expressed by an optometrist.
Components of TearCare include a flexible pair of eyelid devices. These conform to each patient’s unique anatomy, providing sustained thermal treatment. The device is soft and lightweight and your eyes can behave naturally while wearing it.
TearCare works with the eye’s natural blinking force to clear the meibomian glands of any obstructions. Unobstructed glands allow for the production of your tear film’s oil layer, which prevents tears from evaporating too quickly.
