Lipiflow has become widely known as a revolutionary treatment for the leading cause of dry eye, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). MGD causes gland blockages, resulting in a reduction of oil or poor-quality oil in your tear film. This may cause burning, itching or irritation. These gland blockages can be relieved most effectively by gently heating and massaging the inner and outer lid of the eyes. Lipiflow’s single-use eyepieces do just that. The goal is to loosen obstructive oil-clogging material in the meibomian glands. This allows the glands to function properly and produce the oils that make up the top protective layer of tear film. The treatment can greatly reduce discomfort caused by MGD. If you are experiencing dry eye symptoms or think Lipiflow might be right for you, contact Williams & Associates today for an appointment.
