LipiFlow treatment

The thermal pulsation treatment, LipiFlow, is applied in patients with dysfunction of the Meibomian glands, which is one of the causes of the development of Dry Eye.

The device is made up of a monitor and a piece that is placed over the eye to protect the cornea. It also helps maintain the temperature and pressure applied by the device.

Once this step is done, heat and pressure are applied to the eyelids to improve drainage of the Meibomian gland. The goal is to drain the gland to free it from blockages and improve fluid secretion. This improves tear quality and reduces dry eye symptoms.
