If your Dry Eye Disease is determined to have an eyelid glandular component, your may be a candidate for this exciting technology. LipiFlow® is a new procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, blocked Meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film.

Some treatments attempt to add more liquid to your tears, but without the complex natural oil, tears continue to evaporate faster than produced.

Your doctor will examine your eyelids and ocular surface in the clinic and decide if you have poor Meibomian gland health. If you are a good candidate for this procedure, you will be brought into a quiet room and an eyepiece called the Activator will be gently placed against your inner eyelids. This innovative design allows heat to be placed against the posterior surface of the Meibomian glands, as opposed to the outside of the eyelid. As the contents of the glands are softened, the Thermal Pulsation System compresses the glands which clears the contents. This allows your body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for your tear film. The Activator’s single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment.

Imagine returning to doing the things you enjoy, without worrying about your eyes. LipiFlow® could be your first step to relief.
