LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation

A State of the Art Treatment for Chronic Dry Eye

LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation applies heat to the inner eyelids and gentle pressure, releasing lipids from the Meibomian glands. The procedure is fast, painless, and tackles the root cause of dry eye symptoms by unblocking the Meibomian glands. In a clinical study, 79% of patients reported improved overall dry eye symptoms within four weeks of a single LipiFlow treatment.

Dr. Ritesh Patel is one of the first Doctors in North America to successfully integrate the use of LipiFlow technology in treating chronic dry eye patients, and has over seven years of experience in treating patients from across North America.


The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a breakthrough way to treat Evaporative Dry Eye caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Opening blocked glands allows the body to resume the natural production of lipids needed for the tear film. The result may eliminate the uncomfortable symptoms associated with Evaporative Dry Eye.

LipiFlow treats the leading cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, not just the symptoms. For many of our patients, LipiFlow means lasting relief and a reduction in the use of compresses, drops and other dry eye treatments.
