LipiScan

The LipiScan is the first dedicated high-definition gland imager that allows eye care professionals to assess meibomian gland structure. 86% of all dry eye patients have involvement of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), and that’s why we’re so passionate about that condition.

The best treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is LipiFlow. The new LipiScan will allow the diagnosis of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction to be obtained easier, and allow our doctors to recommend the Lipiflow treatment much faster.

YOUR DRY EYES MAY BE CAUSED BY MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction)

MGD are tiny glands in your eyelids that don’t secrete enough oil into your tears. Your Meibomian glands procedure the oily part of the tear film needed to protect the surface of your eye by preventing the evaporation of the watery part of your tears. When this function is not working well, your eyes may feel dry.

What causes MGD?
A number of conditions can lead to changes in the structure or function of the glands, known as MGD. If left untreated, MGD can become progressively worse over time. Conditions that can contribute to MGD are computer/device use, reading/watching TV, environment, contact lens wear, eye surgery, poor blinking, allergies, glaucoma and chronic eye diseases, medications, eye infections (such as styes), climate, and make-up that can clog glands.

The LipiFlow System

What to expect from treatment?
After an initial anesthetic eye drop, Meibomian glands are heated and then gently massaged to loosen the oil trapped within the glands. The automated treatment helps clear the gland obstruction and restore function. There are no drugs required for this procedure.

Ready to treat your underlying cause of your dry eyes? Whether you currently have symptoms of MGD or are still without symptoms, the time to talk to your doctor about how your eyes can benefit from the LipiFlow treatment is now. Call us today!
