What Is Dry Eye Disease?

Dry eye is considered a disease because it is chronic and progressive. If left untreated, the disease can worsen, and symptoms can become more disruptive to clear and comfortable vision. 

2 primary factors contribute to the development of dry eye disease: gland obstruction and inflammation.

Gland Obstruction

We all have glands in our upper and lower eyelids that secrete a specialized oil called meibum into our tear film. Meibum pulls oxygen from the environment to nourish the cornea and prevent redness. It also helps stabilize our tear film so our vision remains clear and does not fluctuate. Meibum also contains antibacterial properties, which protect our eyes from infections. 

This oil layer is secreted into our tear film every time we blink, but most of us don’t blink enough throughout the day, causing our oil glands to back up. And once the oils stop regularly flowing from these glands, they begin to atrophy (deteriorate). 

In the comparative meibography scan, the first image shows an eyelid with healthy meibomian glands. In the second image, you can see an eyelid with moderate gland obstruction where some blocked glands are partially atrophied, and some have already disappeared.


Chronic inflammation damages the meibomian glands and destabilizes the tear film. The primary source of inflammation is leaky blood vessels along the eyelid margins. People with inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, arthritis, eczema, and many other autoimmune diseases may be more susceptible to dry eye disease.

Our team of experienced optometrists will personalize the treatment plan to address your specific needs, prioritizing optimal results and long-lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.

Forma-I: Revitalize Your Eyes

One of the key components of Envision is Forma-I. This advanced radiofrequency treatment targets the underlying causes of dry eye, such as meibomian gland dysfunction and inflammation. By gently heating the eyelid area, Forma-I stimulates the meibomian glands, leading to improved oil production and better tear quality. 

This rejuvenating process helps to reduce dryness, discomfort, and irritation, allowing your eyes to feel refreshed and revitalized.

Lumecca: Illuminate Your Vision

In addition to Forma-I, Envision also uses Lumecca, an intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy that targets the blood vessels responsible for inflammation in the eyelids. By precisely delivering pulses of light, Lumecca helps to reduce redness, eliminate bacteria, and improve overall tear gland health. 

The result is a significant reduction in dry eye symptoms, including irritation and excessive tearing. With Lumecca, you can experience clearer, more comfortable vision.
