Dry Eye Treatment Options

LipiFlow®, the groundbreaking treatment, addresses the cause of Evaporative Dry Eye

LipiFlow LogoIf you’ve been unable to receive long-lasting relief from the over-the-counter or prescription remedies you’ve tried, it may be because they haven’t been targeting the primary cause of your condition – the blockage of your Meibomian glands located in your eyelids. Perhaps you’ve tried things like eye drops and warm compresses, which many find inconvenient and only offer short-term relief.

The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System by TearScience®, is a significant technological shift managing evaporative dry eye. With a single procedure, applying a combination of directed heat and pulsatile pressure, many find a single treatment effective in relieving the blockage of their Meibomian glands. The LipiFlow® System is intended for the application of localized heat and pressure therapy in adult patients with evaporative dry eye. Opening the blocked glands may allow your body to resume its natural production of tear film oil.

NO OTHER DRY EYE THERAPIES DO WHAT THE THERMAL PULSATION SYSTEM CAN!

LipiFlow® treatment is clinically proven with sustained results. In a clinical study about 79% of patients reported an improvement in overall dry eye symptoms after a single LipiFlow® treatment, you may need to repeat the LipiFlow® treatment periodically as your symptoms return over time.

What actually happens during a LipiFlow® treatment?

The LipiFlow® Activator (a disposable eyepiece) is inserted under your lower and upper eye lid and is shaped to prevent contact with your cornea. Once in place, you simply recline in the treatment chair and experience the 12 minute procedure. In a clinical study, 32% of patients reported no discomfort and 48% of patients noted awareness of pressure without pain during the LipiFlow treatment. The average total Meibomian gland score for patients who received a single LipiFlow treatment more than doubles from 6.3 +- 3.5 glands at the baseline to 16.7 +- 8.7 glands at 4 weeks. As previously mentioned, 79% of patients treated with LipiFlow in the clinical study reported an improvement in overall dry eye symptoms.

Why is LipiFlow® superior to other Dry Eye therapies?

If you’re a moderate or severe Evaporative Dry Eye sufferer, life can seem like a constant battle to alleviate symptoms. Those drops and warm compresses become a regular ritual. You’ve tried blinking exercises and lid scrubs. And you avoid wearing contact lenses and extended sessions in front of the computer.

If this sounds familiar, you may need LipiFlow®. It’s breakthrough treatment for evaporative Dry Eye. LipiFlow® is:

  • The first and only treatment that addresses the cause of Evaporative Dry Eye at the source, allowing your eyelid glands to produce the oils required for a healthy tear film. Other treatments – warm compresses and drops – just give you temporary symptomatic relief.
  • The only treatment that can give you sustained relief through improved gland function. Other treatments require daily, and some times even hourly, attention to keep your Evaporative Dry Eye under control.
  • A powerful step in managing Dry Eye disease, providing symptom relief and helping stop the cycle of Dry Eye deterioration and worsening symptoms.
