LipiFlow® for Dry Eyes in Soddy-Daisy
LipiFlow® is a new treatment for patients suffering from chronic dry eye problems such as meibomian gland dysfunction or evaporative dry eye. This in-clinic procedure is different from the usual solution of adding eye drops to your eyes, and it offers much more than a temporary fix. You can now get a more lasting treatment that helps your eye glands to produce healthy natural tears. 79% of patients studied who tried the LipiFlow® procedure reported improvements within just four weeks.
The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation procedure will unclog and open up your blocked meibomian glands. This can restore the gland's ability to produce the lipids that are part of a healthy, hydrating natural tear. It is a simple procedure that can often be done the same day as an evaluation appointment. A single-use eyepiece on your inner eyelid is warmed to an exact temperature and will provide just a bit of pressure to help your body produce natural and healthy tears again.
If you think that you may benefit from the LipiFlow® procedure, contact us today for an evaluation. Using the three-step system, we will check your eyes for dryness and causes of dryness and then set up a treatment plan that works best for you.
