Dry eye syndrome, a common and very annoying condition, can be due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), which leads to a quicker-than-normal evaporation of your tears. Often, the painful symptoms of dry eye then result, such as burning, itching, a gritty sensation, and redness. LipiScan offers a precise diagnosis of MGD, and LipiFlow provides effective treatment to bring relief from dry eye irritation.
LipiFlow: Dry Eye Treatment
LipiFlow, by Johnson & Johnson Vision, is a Thermal Pulsation System that improves the function of meibomian glands. FDA-approved, safe and totally drug-free, it consists of a console and a single-use sterile Activator tool. Through gentle massage and heat, LipiFlow can enhance the quality of meibomian gland secretions. Eye doctors around the world are equipping their eye care clinics with this breakthrough technology to treat dry eye.
How does LipiFlow work?
LipiFlow applies therapeutic heat and peristaltic energy pressure, with numerous sensors that regulate the temperature and pressure pulses. The combination of massage and heat works to expel any meibomian gland obstructions. The entire in-office procedure takes about 12 minutes.
