Do suffer from Dry Eyes? If you answered yes to that question, we have some exciting news for you!!!
We now have the ability to evaluate and assess the severity in more depth with our new Lipiview instrument.
This tool will help to identify the type of Dry Eye Disease you may have by doing a few different tests to determine if the symptoms and issues stem from oil layer deficiencies or the water layer of your tear film. From there the doctor will be able recommend the best kind of treatment needed from the full assessment.
One of the types of treatment the doctor may recommend due to the severity is the Lipiflow procedure itself. This is just an amazing new advancement in technology to help with Dry Eye Disease and we are SO excited to be able to offer it to our patients!!
This procedure is not painful whatsoever and is actually kind of relaxing. The applicators are put on to the eyelids and heat up to a comfortable 108 degree temperature and massage the Meibomian Glands, which are what produces the oily portion of our tears to keep our eye moist, and by doing this it can release any debris or blockage and get those glands functioning again to help with those annoying discomforts. If you would like more information or to set up your Lipiview full assessment, please give us a call. We would love to answer any questions you may have.
