What causes dry eye?

Did you know that the leading cause of dry eye is meibomian gland dysfunction? Tiny glands in the eyelids release lubricants that keep the eye moist and protected. When the normal flow is interrupted, the tear film evaporates and the eyes become inflamed and irritated. For many, this condition is chronic and difficult to treat. 

Factors such as age, health, and lifestyle can contribute to the condition. And over the counter solutions are simply not enough to restore the natural moisture balance. 

LipiFlow stimulates normal gland function, bringing health and comfort to eyes. It’s a lasting solution that treats the root cause of evaporative dry eye. 

How does it work? 

LipiFlow is advanced technology based on the therapeutic use of heat and massage. The in-office procedure takes about 12 minutes and provides lasting results. Unlike over the counter solutions, LipiFlow treats the underlying cause of chronic, severe dry eye. 

Talk to a local optometrist to find out how you can assess your tear quality and get real relief from uncomfortable dry eye.

What is the treatment like?

The treatment is surprisingly quick, painless and noninvasive. 

Your optometrist will prepare the eye area and help make you comfortable. Special adaptors cover the eyelids and deliver controlled warmth and gentle pulsing. This helps remove blockages and stimulate normal gland production. It restores the natural flow of lipids, helping your tears last and improving the health of your eyes. 

Most patients experience symptom improvement in as little as two weeks, but only your eye doctor can guide you on what to expect.
