Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) accounts for 86% of dry eye disease. Meibomian glands lie within the eyelid and produce the oil component of the tear film. A deficiency in production of this oil leads to a tear film that quickly evaporates. Our doctors prescribe Lipiflow to unclog the obstructed oil glands that are vital to reducing the symptoms of dry eye. Lipiflow is the first FDA approved device treat the underlying cause of dry eye. Lipiflow is a very comfortable procedure that many patients find refreshing and relaxing. It helps to restore stability to the tear film and provide relief to patients.
