How Lipiflow Treatment Can Help Your Dry Eye

Dry eye is an uncomfortable, often painful condition that can make everyday tasks more difficult. This condition is often caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. This occurs when the small meibomian glands located in the eyelids are not working properly. This leads to the eye not having sufficient moisture. If this condition is not treated, it can cause permanent damage to the eyes. Thankfully, there is an effective treatment available for this condition.

LipiFlow Treatment for Dry Eye

The LipiFlow treatment is available from your Kissimmee ophthalmologist to correct the problem and allow the eye to have more moisture. LipiFlow has been cleared by the FDA to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. It is the only electronic device to have this clearance. More than 30 studies have shown that it is both safe and effective for this condition.

LipiFlow uses a pulsation technology and heat to apply a very precise amount of heat and massage to the inner portion of the eyelids. This works to remove the blockages that have caused the meibomian glands to stop working effectively. When this dry eye treatment is administered by an ophthalmologist, the removal of the blockages allows the glands to resume their flow of oil to the eye. This oil is a part of the tear film that naturally coats the surface of the eye. With this tear film back to its natural composition, the dry eye problem is gone.

I cannot express how much I admire this place and the staff believe me if you come here you too will be very happy. They take the time to evaluate and ensure that you are taken care of 100%. Thanks so much!!!
