New Treatment for Dry Eyes
LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment:
LipiFlow®, a new dry eye treatment, is a procedure designed to treat MGD, meibomian gland dysfunction, blocked Meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film.
At the heart of the LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is the Activator (eyepiece). The Activator uses patented, precisely controlled heat applied to the inner eyelid with adaptive pressure encouraging your body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for your tear film. Its single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment. The treatment is performed in a doctor’s office — and in some cases, on the same day as your evaluation.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) For Treating Dry Eye:
IPL, new treatment for dry eyes, is not a laser, but a light-based therapy. A key component to an unstable tear-film is MGD, meibomian gland dysfunction. When the glands are not producing a proper lipid (oily) layer, the tear-film is unstable and will rapidly evaporate. Furthermore, if the meibomian glands’ oily secretions are stuck inside the glands, inflammation can set in and exacerbate the problem.
Using bursts of light, IPL is directed at the eyelids, targeting the abnormal blood vessels to increase the flow of impacted meibomian secretion. The stagnant material is then often manually expressed.
