This is going to increase your quality of life and allow you to get back to all of the activities that you enjoy.
This is a heat pulse treatment. It is designed to heat the meibomian gland in the eye. It is natural for the glands in the eyes to get clogged as a person gets older. This means that the oil that is clogged in the gland will start to crystallize. This leads to a wide variety of problems, including dry and itchy eyes. The oil in the tears is no longer able to flow as freely. When LipiFlow® is used, the glands are unblocked. This means that the eyes will be able to lubricate themselves naturally again.
This dry eye treatment is easy to perform. It is safe and is done here in our office. You do not even need to worry about downtime afterward. It is so easy and quick that it can actually be done on the exact same day that you have your initial consultation. Stop fussing with eye drops that do not provide long-term solutions.
What Kind of Results Should You Expect?
You should expect to see significant improvement in your eyes just four weeks after the LipiFlow® treatment is done. You do not have to worry about the uncomfortable sensations that you are experiencing right now once your glands are no longer clogged. In a clinical trial that was done with this dry eye treatment, more than 75 percent of the patients saw significant improvements in just that short amount of time.
