Almost everyone has felt dry eyes at some point but most people don’t realize that avoiding dry eyes is important for long-term eye health. If you want to help your eyes stay healthy for the rest of your life take some steps now to protect your precious peepers.
If you have dry eyes, chances are you need to unclog your Meibomian Glands. To find out why the Meibomian Glands are so important check out our post: The Incredible Reason Why Your Eyes Feel Dry. When it comes to unclogging the Meibomian Glands the good news is, we’ve got you covered (pun intended).
Three words: moist-heat therapy.
But first, let’s quickly go over why Meibomian Glands are so important. This diagram shows how Meibomian Glands go to work every time you blink.
1: We blink to clean, protect and moisten our eyes.
2: When our eyelids meet there is slight pressure on the upper and lower lids, this causes the Meibomian Glands to release an oily film that prevents evaporation called Meibum.
3: The Meibum is then spread evenly across the exposed surface of the eye as we open our eyes.

Sometimes the Meibum can have the wrong consistency and clog the Meibomian Glands which means evaporation and dry eyes.
So how do you prevent that feeling of dry eyes?
Humidity helps spread the oily substance and warmth helps to soften and liquefy the Meibum. At the right temperature and for the right amount of time – moist-heat therapy can help the oily substance have the right consistency to release properly across the entire exposed surface of the eye.
We love moist-heat therapy as a solution because it is completely natural: it just helps your eyes function how they were made to function.
Sometimes our eyes aren’t able to keep up with the lives we live today. They just weren’t built for indoor heating and air conditioning, or staring at screens and books all day, or going through eye surgery. Sometimes they need a little help.
We’ve seen some try to use wet heated wash cloths for moist heat therapy, but they don’t get results. Research has shown the wash cloth method to be ineffective. It’s difficult to get the specific temperature and it does not hold the temperature long enough. The key is controlled, optimum humidity and temperature.
