LipiFlow is a treatment device specifically designed for effectively removing blockages from the meibmomian glands, allowing them to properly function and produce the oils that make up the top protective lipid layer of the tear film.
- LipiView™ II Ocular Surface Interferometer – Captures detailed images of the glands and tear film
- Meibomian Gland Evaluator – Evaluates Meibomian gland function
- LipiFlow™ Thermal Pulsation System – Treats blocked meibomian glands (cause of most dry eyes)
Unlike traditional dry eye treatments (warm compresses, wetting drops, ointments) that address symptoms, LipiFlow treats the root cause, the obstructed Meibomian glands. Our goal is to unblock the glands in order to allow them to resume their natural production of lipids required for a healthy tear film. LipiFlow is a 12-minute, in-office procedure. Both eyes can be treated simultaneously.
If you have MGD, LipiFlow may be an optimal treatment to ensure long-term eye health and to alleviate MGD. Contact the Dry Eye & Ocular Surface Disease Clinic today for further details.
