Lipiflow Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eyes are a commonly experienced optometric problem resulting from insufficient lubrication in the eye. Dry eye syndrome, frequently caused by decreased production of the meibomian glands, is a chronic condition that can range from mildly irritating to severe.
Symptoms of dry eyes include:
- Scratchy, burning, and irritated
- Blurred vision
- Watery eyes
- Gritty, sandy feeling in the eyes
- Inability to wear contact lenses
At Accuvision Eye Care, we treat the burning, scratching, and dryness associated with dry eye syndrome by going directly to the source: the meibomian glands. These glands are responsible for producing the oil that coats tears and prevents evaporation; dysfunction of the meibomian glands is responsible for 86% of dry eye cases. We stimulate natural oil production and eye lubrication using advanced Lipiflow® technology.
LipiFlow® is a drug-free medical device that applies thermal heat and pulsing motion to the eyelid to stimulate the meibomian glands and relieve dry eyes, naturally. LipiFlow® consists of a sterile, single-use applicator that has been supported by numerous peer-review studies as a safe and effective treatment for dry eyes. Rather than covering up the symptoms of dry eyes, LipiFlow® address the root cause for long-term results. Accuvision Eye Care is proud to be one of the few optometry offices offering this new, drug-free technology as a treatment solution for dry eyes – give us a call and start releiving dry eyes today!
