Lipiview: Captures detailed images of the tear film. Measures the absolute thickness of tear film lipid layer. Captures meibomian glands under near-infrared illumination and captures images of the ocular surface and eyelids under white illumination.
Lipiflow: You may be familiar with traditional treatments such as warm compresses, wetting drops and ointments. Our new technology, LipiFlow®, address dry eye symptoms to treat the root cause of the problem, the obstructed Meibomian glands. This is intended for the application of localized heat and pressure in adult patients with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), also known as evaporative dry eye. The goal of unblocking the glands is to allow them to resume their natural production of oils required for a healthy tear film.
How LipiFlow Works:
- LipiFlow is an in-office procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes.
- Both eyes can be treated simultaneously.
- The treatment facilitates the release of oils from the blocked meibomian glands allowing the natural flow of oils to resume.
