What is LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment?

What you need to know about LipiFlow chronic dry eye treatment

  • The first step is to determine if you are indeed suffering from dry eye disease. Your doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation using a brief questionnaire to determine the likely cause of your dry eye symptoms.
  • This dry eye lifestyle assessment allows your LipiFlow treatment provider to understand how your eyes feel on a daily basis.
  • If the assessment indicates that your dry eyes symptoms are beyond mild, Dr. Adrian Long and his team  will use LipiView® to evaluate the lipid (oil) layer on your eyes. It takes detailed images of your eye’s tear film to determine whether or not you have Evaporative Dry Eye caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
  • Once confirmed, we will use the advanced LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System for opening and clearing blocked glands. This allows the body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for the tear film.
