iLux® Device

See It

View the blocked meibomian gland orifices through the magnifying lens.

iLux allows direct visualization of meibomian glands, blockages, and expressed meibum throughout treatment via the magnifying lens, providing a direct view of the treatment area.

Heat It

Apply LED light to raise the eyelid temperature and melt the blockages.

The proprietary light-based heat source gently warms the inner and outer lid to a safe therapeutic temperature. Sensors in the disposable iLux Smart Tip monitor inner eyelid temperature continuously during treatment.

Treat It

Gently compress the eyelid as much as you need to clear the blocked orifices.

One-button control of heating and compression puts treatment in your hands, allowing you to choose the location and duration of treatment. iLux measures compression force, which is displayed on the LCD screen.

Take control of Dry Eye Treatment with iLux®

Handheld and portable, iLux is easily incorporated into your practice and patient workflow. Packed with technology and features designed to make MGD treatment fast and effective, iLux puts the future of dry eye treatment in the palm of your hand.

iLux®applies heat and compression, under direct visualization, to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

The iLux MGD treatment system:

  • Consists of the handheld iLux device, and the sterile, single-patient use disposable Smart Tip.
  • Uses light energy to warm meibomian glands quickly and comfortably.
  • Lets you manually adjust gland compression based on your clinical judgement.
  • Lets you view meibomian gland orifices, so you can tailor your treatment to each patient’s needs.
  • Is great value for patients and practice, bringing relief to more eyes while boosting your bottom line.

iLux applies localized heat and pressure therapy to upper or lower eyelids. The iLux device allows an eye care professional (ECP) to view the eyelid margin through the magnifier, then warm the eyelid tissue within a therapeutic target range to melt the meibum blocking the orifices, and then apply compression to the eyelid to express the melted meibum through the orifices.

At all times, the amount of heat and pressure applied is under direct control of the ECP who monitors the response of the glands and the comfort of the patient.

The iLux® Smart Tip:
Small package, big technology

The sterile, single-patient use, disposable iLux Smart Tip has an inner pad and an outer pad. The inner pad slips behind the eyelid being treated, while the outer pad is pressed against the outer surface of the eyelid during heating and compression. Both pads are covered with a soft, biocompatible silicone material.

The iLux Smart Tip contains precision temperature sensors to continually monitor inner eyelid temperature and maintain safe, therapeutic heat levels during treatment.

Information from the Smart Tip is relayed to the iLux device, controlling the LED light sources to increase or decrease treatment temperature as needed.

Fast. Friendly. Affordable.

Treatments are quick and efficient, with most patients being treated in less than 8 minutes. Targeted therapy lets you direct treatment exactly where needed, reducing chair time and increasing patient flow.

Treatment with iLux is gentle and comfortable. The compact handheld device provides a pleasant and rewarding experience for the patient.

iLux treatments are great value for both your patients and your practice. The iLux device and disposable Smart Tip are cost-effective, increasing patient acceptance for initial treatment as well as follow ups.
