Most treatments are focused on tear deficiency issues, but, in most cases, dry eye symptoms are caused by blockages in the tiny meibomian glands in your eyelids. When these glands are not functioning properly, it’s called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), a leading cause of dry eye. Early detection is essential as MGD can progress and, if left untreated, may cause permanent damage.
LipiFlow is the only electronic device cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of (MGD) Meibomian gland dysfunction with clinical studies that demonstrate safety and effectiveness. Watch the video below to learn more about MGD and to see how Lipiflow can help.
LipiFlow utilizes Vectored Thermal Pulsation technology and a patented algorithm of precise heat that is applied to the inner eyelids with directed gentle massage to remove blockages from the meibomian glands. This treatment is designed to restore the natural oil flow to the tear film that covers the eye’s surface.
