What Is LipiFlow?
Best-In-Class Treatment for Dry Eye Syndrome
and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
Specifically Designed to Remove Blockages from Meibomian Glands and relieve Dry Eye
For patients with mild, moderate, or severe dry eyes who are without relief, a new procedure is available at LaserVue Eye Center. The LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment.
Up until now, dry eye syndrome has typically been treated with prescription eye drops or artificial tears, punctal plugs, and dietary supplements. LipiFlow represents an effective, safe, and drug-free approach to finding relief from dry eye.
The new LipiFlow treatment is designed to treat the root cause of many Dry Eye symptoms: Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). MGD causes blockages in the meibomian glands which prevents them from secreting enough oil, this oil is what prevents the surface of your eye from drying out.
LipiFlow works by implementing the precise application of heat and massage to both the outer and inner eyelids. This application has proved to be an extremely effective process for clearing blockages found in the Meibomian glands. Best of all, the LipiFlow treatment can be performed during a single office visit in as little as 12 minutes.
