The most common form of Dry Eye is Evaporative Dry Eye, which affects 9 out of 10 Dry Eye cases (86%). This form results from a shortage of oil on the surface of your tears caused by a blockage in your eyelid (Meibomian) glands, leading tears to evaporate faster than normal.

We will perform a series of evaluations to determine the likely cause of your Dry Eye. This can include a LipiView tear film assessment and a Meibomian gland evaluation. Knowing what is causing your Dry Eye will help your doctor determine the best treatment option.

Lipiflow® is a procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, blocked Meibomian glands.

Lipiflow® works by applying directed energy to the eyelid near the affected glands – precisely targeted warmth from the back of the eyelid, and slight pressure from the front. This treatment is performed right in your doctor’s office.

Lipiflow® has been clinically proven. May people with Dry Eye have now been treated with Lipiflow® including patients in a multi-center clinical trial. During this trial most (79%) of patients reported improvement in their overall Dry Eye symptoms within four weeks.
