Warm compresses are used as a dry eye treatment early on for the management of evaporative dry eye disease, often as a result of Meibomian gland dysfunction. Warm compresses (also known as hot compresses) are used to melt rancid, solidified oils trapped in the eyelids. This allows for the oils to run smoothly out of the oil glands and allow for new oils to be produced.
