About 85% of patients with dry eye have MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction). MGD is a condition where the Meibomian glands fail to produce sufficient Meibum to lubricate the tear film. The glands can be clogged or inflamed due to an infection or allergies.
LipiFlow is a cutting-edge process that stimulates the Meibomian Glands and increases Meibum production. Addressing Meibomian dysfunction is challenging with conventional methods.
The procedure utilizes a thermal pulsation device to stimulate the glands for LipiFlow dry eye treatment. The device generates heat pulses and targets the area around the eyelids. It eliminates blockages and inflammation to facilitate Meibum secretion and lubricate your eyes.
LipiFlow is a safe procedure that gently massages the eyelids using a device that produces light pulses. Our Mahogany optometrist will assess your eyelids before the procedure. A certified optometrist offering LipiFlow treatment near you must diagnose MGD to determine if you’re an ideal candidate.
The LipiFlow procedure involves applying pulses from under and over the eyelids. The device is placed on each eye alternately to unclog and express the oils in the tear film. It will massage each of your eyelids, applying gentle pressure and heat. You can expect the procedure to take approximately 12 minutes. It is a painless process that is safe for your eyes.
