DRY EYE IS MORE THAN AN INCONVENIENCE.
DRY EYE IS A DISEASE.

Dry eye disease affects 40 million Americans. While common dry eye disease is treatable, many people suffer for years from the discomfort and pain. Most try various products to manage their disease, and while many of the Over-The-Counter products can provide relief, it is just temporary symptom relief. ABBA Eye Care has the tools to help figure out not only what’s causing your dry eye symptoms but target the root cause so you can feel better and see better. 

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a leading cause of Dry Eye Disease. Dry Eye Disease is rarely due to a lack of the watery part of your tears. 86% of dry eye patients have MGD.

What is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD?

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is a progressive disease of the ocular surface. Long term, failure to treat MGD can lead to chronic discomfort and degradation of vision, significantly impacting quality of life.

Healthy Meibomian glands that line your upper and lower eyelids secrete oil with every blink. Your Meibomian glands produce the oily part of the tear film needed to protect the surface of your eye by preventing the evaporation of the watery part of your tears. When this function is not working well, your eyes may feel dry. Keeping the function and structure of your Meibomian glands healthy before you become symptomatic is key, as MGD progresses over time.

  • Watery eyes 
    • It sounds counterintuitive, but your eyes could be producing more tears to make up for lower quality tears.
  • Blurry vision
