Are you tired of dealing with the discomfort and irritation of dry eyes? At Ultimate Eyecare Santa Fe, we use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome effectively. One of the treatments we use is the LipiFlow® thermal pulsation system from TearScience®. 

What is LipiFlow® dry eye treatment? 

LipiFlow® is a cutting-edge technology that specifically targets meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which is a leading cause of dry eye. The meibomian glands are tiny oil glands found along the edges of your eyelids that produce an oil called meibum. This oil coats the surface of your eyes and keeps your tears from evaporating too quickly. When these glands get blocked or clogged, not enough oil reaches the surface of your eyes and dry eye can occur. LipiFlow® removes gland blockages by applying enough heat to melt the blockage while simultaneously applying gentle pressure to the eyelid. 

How does LipiFlow® dry eye treatment work? 

One of the main benefits of LipiFlow® is that it offers lasting relief for patients suffering from dry eye caused by MGD. By targeting the root cause of the problem—blocked meibomian glands—LipiFlow® helps to improve tear quality and relieve inflammation in your eyes. Many patients who received LipiFlow® treatment say their dry eye symptoms improved significantly.
