Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) accounts for 86% of Dry Eye Disease. Meibomian glands are glands that lie within the eyelid that produce the oil component of the tear film. A deficiency in production of this oil leads to a tear film that will quickly evaporate. The doctors at Summit Eye Care use Lipiflow to unclog the obstructed oil glands that are vital to reducing the symptoms of dry eye. Lipiflow is the first FDA approved device to help doctors treat the underlying cause of dry eye. Lipiflow is a very comfortable procedure that many patients find refreshing and relaxing. This procedure helps to restore stability to the tear film and provide relief to patients.
