Patients who suffer from dry, itchy eyes and experience pain, burning, blurry vision, or sensitivity to light are likely to have dry eye; a chronic condition affecting their tear ducts and tear production. Chronic Dry Eye is often caused by obstructed oil glands located in your eyelids, known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or MGD. LipiFlow® addresses this issue at its core, focusing on opening and clearing blocked glands. The result is a quick, painless procedure that helps resume the natural production of oils, and therefore a healthy tear film.
The proven LipiFlow® treatment is a simple 12-minute treatment completed in your doctor's office that can help improve gland function, thus maintaining the necessary protective oily layer to keep your eyes moist and healthy. LipiFlow® Activators are single-use sterile devices that safely and comfortably deliver a combination of heat to the inner lids and simultaneous therapeutic massage to the outer lids, removing blockages from the Meibomian glands. As a result of removing gland obstructions, your glands are then able to produce the oils essential in protecting your eyes from progressive Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.
