What is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction?
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction refers to a condition wherein the Meibomian glands located in the eyes do not function well. The main role of these glands is to release oils in the eyes which helps in making the eyes clean and healthy and also prevents the tear film from drying.
Sometimes, these glands become clogged and the water present in the eyes in the form of tears begins to evaporate rapidly. This makes the eyes dry and more prone to getting inflamed and irritated. Sometimes, these glands begin to produce secretions that are too thick which makes the glands clogged.
MGD is triggered by a number of factors including old age, medication, use of contact lenses, pregnancy and some health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, menopause, psoriasis, acne and sjogren’s syndrome. If MGD is not treated in time it can cause permanent dry eye syndrome.
How Eyesoothe MGD Eye Mask Works:
Heat compression is an effective way to relieve Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Eyesoothe eye mask is designed to offer wet heat to the eyes. This heat helps in eliminating any blockages in the eyes and also activates meibomian glands to improve the flow of meibum in the eyes.
Meibum helps in retaining moisture on the outer surface of the eyes and keeps them clean and free from harmful irritants. This mask is also beneficial for curing blepharitis brought on by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.
The heat helps in relaxing sore muscles around the eyes and releases piled up fluids in the eyes. Using this mask for two or more weeks twice a day can considerably lessen the symptoms of MGD.
How to Use Eyesoothe Eye Mask for MGD?
Eyesoothe eye mask includes a heating eye mask with special foil lining to retain heat for up to ten minutes, gel packets, a zip-lock bag and instructions. In order to reap the benefits of the mask, follow the undermentioned instructions:
1. Heat some water in a boiler or in a kettle. Pour the water in a medium sized bowl.
2. Put the gel packets in hot water. Add more water into the bowl if needed to fully cover the gel packets for uniform distribution of heat.
3. Let the gel packs stay in the bowl for four to five minutes to heat them properly.
4. Once heated, take the gel packets out of the water bowl and shake them to get rid of any excess water.
5. Immediately, put the heated gel packets inside the mask and close the mask properly so the packs stay warm for longer time.
6. Wear the mask and lie down in a comfortable place for ten minutes to let the mask work.
Initially, you should use the mask twice a day daily for two weeks. When you notice improvement in the symptoms of MGD, reduce the usage frequency to three to four days in the last week of the treatment. This mask is reusable and can be heated up to 100 times.
