What Is LipiFlow?
LipiFlow is an innovative, non-invasive solution that has been developed to ease the symptoms of dry eye. By gently heating and pushing on your eyelids, LipiFlow’s revolutionary thermal pulsation technology liquefies and expresses the oils produced by your meibomian glands. Dryness, burning, itching, and fuzzy vision brought on by dry eyes may be lessened by this non-invasive, FDA-approved therapy.
The LipiFlow procedure is fast, painless, and done directly in our clinic. You may obtain relief from the pain and discomfort of dry eyes in only a 12 minute treatment.
How Does LipiFlow Work?
In order to enhance the meibomian glands’ ability to produce the oils that keep the eyes lubricated and moist, LipiFlow employs a mix of heat and light pressure.
A console and a disposable eyepiece that are positioned on each eye make up the LipiFlow apparatus. The eyepiece gently presses the outer eyelid while also imparting regulated warmth to the inner eyelid. To keep them within a safe and comfortable range, the temperature and pressure are carefully controlled.
The oils generated by the meibomian glands, which may harden and clog in patients with meibomian gland dysfunction, are made liquefiable and expressible by this combination of heat and pressure. By eliminating these obstructions, the meibomian glands may resume their typical activity and create a healthy tear film, keeping the eyes pleasant and moist.
