Dry Eye LipiFlow Treatment

LipiFlow provides a precise application of simultaneous heat and massage to the inner and outer eyelids. This has proven to be an effective means for clearing Meibomian gland blockages. LipiFlow uses vectored thermal pulsating eyepieces known as Activators. LipiFlow Activators are precisely designed to provide necessary inner and outer lid contact, to properly apply heat and massage and clear the Meibomian glands.

The entire treatment takes approximately 12 minutes and on average causes minimal discomfort. The clinical science behind Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) as the primary cause of dry eye and its effective treatment with LipiFlow is supported by scientific research. Removal of the gland blockages is essential to improve gland function and reduce the progression of MGD.

This is good news for the overwhelming majority of patients who suffer from Dry Eye symptoms caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Over time after treatment, the Meibomian glands may become blocked again due to infrequent blinking from modern lifestyles; thus, the oil in the glands tends to thicken and impedes proper oil production. If this occurs, repeat treatments may be required over the long-term.
