Systane Ilux2


Every time you blink, a protective layer of moisture known as the tear film covers the front surface of your eye. A crucial component of the tear film is an oily layer called meibum. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) frequently occurs when the meibomian glands responsible for producing meibum become blocked.


If you regularly use eye drops and experience symptoms like dryness and irritation, consult your eye doctor to assess if treatment with the Systane® iLux2® device is suitable for you. The Systane® iLux2® is an advanced device designed to provide targeted in-office treatment for the underlying causes of MGD symptoms, offering long-lasting relief that is both tangible and visible. The procedure aims to quickly improve your comfort and vision, eliminating dry eye as a barrier. This unique device allows you to visualize the factors contributing to your discomfort and demonstrates how rapidly we can alleviate the issue.

Scottsdale Eyeology is pleased to offer this innovative, non-surgical treatment option for patients experiencing dry eye symptoms related to MGD.


The Systane® iLux2® MGD treatment device administers targeted treatment directly to the blocked meibomian glands. Each session typically lasts 8–12 minutes for both eyes.

Your medical professional assesses your eyelids to identify the treatment zones. Your eyelid is gently held between the soft, biocompatible pads of the Systane® iLux2® device’s Smart Tip Patient Interface. For comfort, you may keep your eyes closed during the procedure.

Therapeutic heat, delivered through light-based technology, gradually warms the blocked glands to a safe temperature, aiding in the softening and release of the trapped oil. Depending on your specific needs, your doctor may adjust the heat or apply gentle pressure to facilitate the process.

Compression techniques are then used to express the melted oil from the glands, completing the treatment.
