You’re suffering…your eyes feel scratchy, gritty and dry. Having dry eyes can greatly impact your vision, and even make everyday activities more difficult. You may have tried a variety of treatments, with no real or lasting relief. Real, lasting relief from dry eyes is now available at Eye Care Specialists! Approved by the FDA, LipiFlow® is the only treatment for dry eye that treats the cause – not just the symptoms – of dry eye for long term relief.
LipiFlow® is a treatment that can help provide relief for those suffering from dry eye disease often caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Meibomian glands in your upper and lower eyelids are responsible for secreting important oils onto the surface of your eye. These oils help keep tears from evaporating too quickly.
MGD is one of the leading causes of dry eye syndrome that occurs when these glands become blocked or inflamed and are unable to secrete enough oil. The tear film evaporates too quickly, resulting in dry eye syndrome. MGD typically does not go away on its own and requires treatment and follow up treatment by an eye care professional.
How Does LipiFlow® Work?
The LipiFlow® treatment works by applying controlled, gentle heat to the upper and lower eyelids, while mild intermittent pressure releases oils from the blocked Meibomian glands. This painless procedure is performed in our office and takes only minutes per eye, with no discomfort and no down-time.
- FDA-Approved, in-office, pain-free procedure with no down-time
- Most patients report noticeable relief after just one treatment, and continued improvement over time with follow-up treatments
- Clinically proven to treat the cause, not just the symptoms, of dry eye
