Only personalized open-eye experience for the relief of Dry Eye Disease


TearCare®, available in 2019, will be a software-controlled, wearable eyelid technology that provides targeted and adjustable thermal energy to the meibomian glands. Leveraging the full functionality of the blinking eye, TearCare®’s proprietary SmartLid™ technology facilitates natural meibum expression when meibum is in its melted phase.

TearCare® for Optometrists and Ophthalmologists

TearCare® is indicated for the application of localized heat when the current medical community recommends the application of a warm compress to the eyelids. Unlike other “closed-eye” energy based-systems, TearCare® provides patients with a personalized open-eye experience throughout the entire in-office procedure.
