Do your eyes feel scratchy, gritty, or dry all the time? Are you constantly putting eyedrops in your eyes to keep them moist?
Does computer work, reading, or driving make it even worse?
You might have what they call evaporative dry eye. This happens when the water in your tears evaporates faster than normal, due to an insufficient lipid (oil) layer on the tear film.
That is what causes your eyes to feel dry.
This deficiency of oil may result from a blockage in the oil-producing glands in your eyelids, known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Sounds so intimidating, right?
Well, don’t worry. Eyexam has a solution called LipiFlow. LipiFlow means relief. LipiFlow treats the leading cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, not just the symptoms. What it does is open and clears blocked glands which allows your body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for the tear film.
For those of you that like statistics, in a clinical study, 79% of patients reported improvement of their overall dry eye symptoms within four weeks, ranging from 10% to 100% improvement. That is water to eyes wouldn’t you say?
Curious how Lipiflow Works?
LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation technology applies controlled heat to your inner eyelid, and mild intermittent pressure releasing lipids from the blocked Meibomian glands. There is no damage to the glands or the delicate structures of the eye. LipiFlow treats the upper and lower eyelids at the same time.
See how it works:
