LipiFlow® complements the LipiScan procedure and is a quick non-invasive and FDA-approved medical treatment that treats the leading cause of dry eye—meibomian gland disease.It is a sophisticated technology based on the proven therapeutic use of heat and massage to relieve blockages.
LipiFlow uses precisely controlled heat and massage to open blocked ducts and restore normal gland activity. Patented components called Activators deliver this treatment directly to the inner and outer lids while protecting delicate eye tissue. Sterile and single-use, the Activators are designed for patient safety and comfort.
Each treatment takes approximately 12 minutes right here in our office. Most patients experience improvement in symptoms in as little as two weeks, but only your eye doctor can guide you on what to expect.
