Lipiflow For Dry Eyes
LipiFlow® is a new procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, which is blocked Meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands allows them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film.
Some treatments attempt to add more liquid to your tears but without the complex natural oil, tears continue to evaporate faster than produced. Dry Eye Group avoid this complication by naturally stimulating the eye with our LipiFlow dry eye treatment in Melbourne.
At the heart of the LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is the Activator (eyepiece). The Activator uses patented, precisely controlled heat applied to the inner eyelid with adaptive pressure encouraging your body to restart the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for healthy tears. Its single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment. The treatment is performed in our optometry clinics — and, in some cases, on the same day as your evaluation, providing quick improvement of your condition.
Next Steps After Treatment
LipiFlow usually offers quick results, meaning you can enjoy improved quality of life shortly after your treatment. We then equip you with the knowledge you need to manage your condition at home, which may include lifestyle changes, supplements, eyedrops and more.
