How Does Lipiflow Thermal Pulsation Work?
The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a breakthrough way to treat dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Over the span of a twelve-minute treatment, the eye pads warm up and apply light, pulsing pressure to the eyelids. This combination of warmth and pressure help to open blocked glands, allowing the lids to produce and expel meibum; the oil that prevents tears from evaporating.
LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation doesn’t just treat dry eye symptoms; it treats the source of the problem. Lots of our patients find lasting relief with LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation, allowing them to rely less heavily on compresses, drops, and other dry eye treatments.
