Lipiflow Treatment for Dry Eye

Are you tired of buying bottle after bottle of eye drops? If you are one of the 30 million Americans with chronic dry eyes, you should know that over 80% of people with dry eyes also have Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). This is a progressive condition that affects the meibomian glands, causing them to become blocked. LipiFlow is a breakthrough treatment precisely designed for MGD and the dry eye effects it causes. At EYECARE for You, our Richboro optometrist, will assess your condition and let you know if LipiFlow is right for you.

Causes of Dry Eye

There are many ways that you can fall victim to dry eyes. It can be a consequence of your lifestyle or the kind of environment you live in. You may be straining to read or watch TV. Excessive screen time may be causing dry eyes. Our optometrist will work to identify the underlying causes of your dry eyes and offer the most effective treatment possible. If dry eye is a result of MDG, your treatment will include LipiFlow.

What is LipiFlow?

LipiFlow treatment is the only FDA-approved treatment option for MGD. It is a thermal pulsation treatment that removes blockages in the gland area and restores glandular function, causing the patient to experience less dry eye and improved eye function. LipiFlow is a natural and effective method of dry eye treatment that uses a combination of heat and massage to gently remove blockages

Is LipiFlow Right for Me?

Ask your eye doctor for an eye exam to see if you have gland dysfunction that is causing dry eyes. This eye exam might include several different evaluations such as gland imaging to identify blockages. Once our optometrist has performed an exam and looked over your eye, she will discuss the treatment options she feels will benefit you the most.
