How is Dry Eye Syndrome Treated?
If you think you may be suffering from chronic dry eye or a similar condition, a comprehensive eye exam is necessary. Once the causes and contributing factors of your condition are determined, one of several treatments may be prescribed. Mild cases can usually be managed with prescription eye drops, but other treatment options may be necessary. LipiFlow is another increasingly popular and very effective option.
What is LipiFlow?
If your eye doctor finds that your chronic eye dryness is due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), you may be a good candidate for LipiFlow. MGD can block your Meibomian glands and keep them from secreting sufficient oil to keep your eye lubricated. LipiFlow treatment addresses this issue through the application of heat and eyelid massage to clear blockages and get your eyes functioning properly again. If you’ve been diagnosed with MGD or suspect you might have it, contact us today to see if LipiFlow might be right for you.
