My doc told me to permanently/long term use hot compresses for my eyelids — just want to double check that this is safe to do?

I've been doing it for twice a day, 5 mins a time for a month and he says my dry eye is improving and to keep it up indefinitely. I've heard in other places that this can harm the glands long term, is that something to be concerned about or can I just keep doing what I'm doing?
