TearCare® System – Treatment for Dry Eye 

At New England EyeWorks in Keene, New Hampshire, we provide advanced and effective treatments for dry eye disease. One of the solutions we offer is TearCare®, a personalized treatment designed to address meibomian gland dysfunction, a common cause of dry eye symptoms. 

How does TearCare® work?  

During the TearCare® treatment, our optometrist will place warming pads called SmartLids™ on your upper and lower eyelids. These SmartLids™ gradually heat the area and soften the oils in the meibomian glands. Our eye doctor will then manually express the softened oils from your meibomian glands, helping to restore their normal function and improve tear quality.  

Patients often find the treatment to be incredibly relaxing and comfortable. The SmartLids™ allow you to blink naturally throughout the procedure, ensuring a comfortable experience. Plus, there’s no downtime afterward, so you can get back to your regular activities right away! 

If you’re experiencing dry eye symptoms, contact us today to schedule an appointment and ask our eye doctor about TearCare® treatment.
