What is a Meibomian Gland and how does it become dysfunctional? - 02/26/18
Associated Eye Surgeons has recently adopted a breakthrough system for assessing and treating Meibomian Gland Dysfunction(MGD). If you are experiencing burning eyes, dryness, irritation, light sensitivity, vision fluctuations, contact lens intolerance, or eye fatigue, you may be a candidate for a new treatment called LipiFlow. With proven outcomes, we anticipate this system will become the new standard of care for MGD.
LipiFlow is intended for the treatment of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, also known as evaporative dry eye or lipid edficient dry eye. Unlike traditional treatments that address dry eye symptoms, LipiFlow treats the root cause, the obstructed gland. The goal of unblocking the glands is to allow them to resume their natural production of lipids required for a healthy tear film.
Although the LipiFlow treatment is done in our Plymouth office and takes approximatley 20 mintues, your total appointment time with us on that day will be longer. You may resume all daily activities immediately following treatment.
If Dry Eye is effecting your daily activities, making you uncomfortable, and keeping you from activities you love, we can help. To learn more, tune into the video below and call us at 508.747.4748
