What is Lipiflow?

LipiFlow® is a therapeutic treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, one of the leading causes of dry eye. By combining heat with a therapeutic pulsation to the eyelids, LipiFlow® helps remove any blockages that you may have and helps your meibomian glands properly function and produce the oils that you need in order to have a healthy tear film.

What Are Meibomian Glands?

Meibomian glands are the glands inside your eyelids that produce the oil needed to protect your ocular surface and prevent the aqueous tears from evaporating. Any dysfunction of the glands can cause a decrease in the oils and lipid layer and leave you with dry eye symptoms, including burning, scratching, and redness.

Am I A Candidate for Lipiflow?

If you suffer from dry eye, particularly meibomian gland dysfunction, then you’re probably a great candidate for LipiFlow®. During your next comprehensive preventative exam, Dr. Munson will take photos of your meibomian glands to check for gland dropout and dysfunction to determine whether this therapeutic treatment is right for you.
