Dry Eye Institute


LipiFlow is the most revolutionary treatment for dry eye, providing comfort to 86% of dry eye patients.

LipiFlow is a new procedure designed to treat blocked Meibomian glands which is the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye. Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film.

Some treatments attempt to add more liquid to your tears, however without the complex natural oil, tears continue to evaporate faster than produced.

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 resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for your tear film. Its single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment. The treatment is performed in a doctor’s office—and in some cases, on the same day as your evaluation.

Bring comfort back to your life with LipiFlow.

Imagine returning to doing the things you enjoy, without worrying about your eyes. LipiFlow could be your first step to dry eye relief.
