LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye affects more than 340 million people around the world. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a leading cause of dry eye, found in an estimated 86% of dry eye patients. The LipiFlow® System is a best-in-class medical device treatment for MGD shown to improve mean gland function and dry eye symptoms.

At Visionmax Eye Centre, we offer a definite treatment to this common problem, instead of only prescribing symptomatic relief. Lipiflow, or thermal pulsation treatment, increases the quality and quantity of oil in the outer layer of your tear film by unblocking and expressing the Meibomian glands, which stimulates the secretion and flow of normal lipids onto the tear film.

Other causes of dry eye disease include a high osmolarity, tear/aqueous deficiency and contact lens-related complications. Our dry eye assessments by a qualified and experienced Doctor, include an array of tests to get to the bottom of each individual’s dry eye symptoms and ocular surface disease entity.
