Lipiflow is the only F.D.A. approved treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, also known as Evaporative Dry Eye or Lipid Deficient Dry Eye.
Lipiflow is an in office thermal pulsation treatment specifically designed to unblock the Meibomian glands. This will allow the restoration of the remaining glands to properly function and produce oils for your tear film. This treatment involves gentle localized heating and massaging of the inner AND outer eyelids with a thermal pulsation technique.

Shoutout to @drchinnoptom @teephanyt and crew for saving my #eyeballs and glands!!! You guys are the best and thank you for your non-stop text to make sure I come in for an appt! Ladies and gents, if you’re like me and uses eyeliner on your waterline, please stop, that’s not what it’s for, that’s where your oil comes out to protect your eyes, when you line it, you block it. Guess what, the eye liner is trapped in your glands and ultimately blocking the oil from coming out (which will cause dry eyes, redness, google it) – when that gland is blocked, you loose it (it’s like loosing a tooth). Luckily for me, it wasn’t too late, he did a #LipiFlow to literally melt & pump out the eyeliner that’s in there (gross right?!). You can use an eyeliner if you’d like, just go below the lash line, after this, I won’t be using one. Anyway, I just thought I’d share it with you.
Below is a video of the treatment and how it works.
