Dry Eye  Imaging

The MX2 is a camera that allows us to visualize the morphology of the meibomian glands through a series of high-definition digital images. The images allow the eye doctor to observe the architecture of the glands by revealing the gland size and any structural abnormalities. 


This technology is used to diagnose meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which indicates an abnormality or blockage of the meibomian glands. When these glands are not working properly, it results in a reduction of oil secreted into tears, which leads to dry eye syndrome. MGD is the leading cause of dry eye syndrome – approximately 86% of Dry Eye patients suffer from MGD.

Diagnosing MGD with certainty allows the eye doctor to prescribe the most appropriate treatment to alleviate your symptoms. "
