MGD Treatment VS. Blepharitis
What is the difference for treatment of dry eyes caused by MGD or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction versus Blepharitis? What should we most focus on for these 2 types?
Basically, to treat your Blepharitis we say use the Eye Love spray that we have or another Hypochlorous acid eyelid cleanser such as Avenova would be another example. Our Heyedrate Eyelid Spray is great for Blepharitis because it really cleans that bacteria off of those eyelashes. Then, with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction you are going to be more focused on heat, omega-3s, and using a warm compress. Sometimes people will do IPL, and Miboflow, which are basically fancy warm compresses. That's basically the difference, but you are going to do all of it truthfully.
Watch Jenna's nightly routine and that is what you should be doing. We say start with your warm compress, then after your warm compress do your Meibomian gland expression, clean with Tea Tree Oil soap, after that use the Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser, then of course take the Omega-3's. The goal is to take a more natural approach to it, use less chemicals, fight the cause and take care of it. I'm sure you guys are sick of us saying that but it's our idea of the best approach.
We are actually doing our food section this week. I know I said I was going to do it last week but life got in the way. We volunteered at a free clinic and we got to do some other things and before we knew it, the week got away from us really quickly. I have been sick. She's been sick. That's life though.
