When Drops Aren’t Enough.
Are your eyes often irritated, red and scratchy? Does your vision fluctuate, and do you rely on an almost daily dose of drops or medications? If so, you’re not alone.
Dry Eye Syndrome is one of the most under diagnosed eye issues and affects over 23 million Americans. A combination of physical and environmental factors can come together to cause dry eyes.
What Causes Dry Eye?
The most common cause of Dry Eye Syndrome is a condition called evaporative dry eye.
Oil is an important part of healthy tears. It mixes with the watery component to create a protective film and slow the rate of tear evaporation. When functioning properly, your Meibomian glands create this oil component. Without this oil, your tears evaporate up to 16 times faster, causing dryness and discomfort. And, factors like environmental changes, allergies and contact lens wear can worsen dry eye symptoms!
Relief For Dry Eye
Thankfully, dry eye sufferers now have an excellent treatment option that fixes evaporative dry eye at the source – Lipiflow.
The Lipiflow Thermal Pulsation System is the first and only treatment to address the cause of evaporative dry eye disease – blocked Meibomian glands.
This revolutionary treatment applies a combination of mild heat & soft pressure directly to the eyelids, similar to a gentle massage. This loosens debris and stimulates lipid production. The entire treatment takes less than 15 minutes, and can lead to extended relief – with improved comfort for up to two years.
