Dry Eye Treatment: LipiFlow®
If you are diagnosed with dry eye syndrome secondary to meibomian gland dysfunction, you can then undergo a 12-minute LipiFlow treatment. This uses a single-use eyepiece to relieve blockage of all the meibomian glands, both upper and lower. The treatment sensation has been compared to an eyelid twitch or gentle pulsation.
After a treatment, the glands become unclogged and in 2 to 6 weeks you should see a noticeable difference in your dry eye symptoms. This is because the natural production of lipids needed for your tear film resumes functioning normally.
