LipiFlow For Dry Eye

Dealing with eye problems is not fun, particularly when those problems leave your eyes irritated all day or make it difficult to see well. If you have been dealing with dry eyes more often than you feel like you should, you might want to visit an Idaho Falls eye doctor and talk about LipiFlow.

What Is LipiFlow?

LipiFlow is one of the most effective treatment devices for dry eyes, specifically designed to treat dry eyes by removing blocked glands that can cause the problem. Although LipiFlow has only been approved by the FDA for a little under a decade at this point, it is proven to be an effective method of treating a common underlying cause of dry eye. The thing that makes LipiFlow such a popular option at Summit Eyecare Pancheri is the fact that it is a quick, safe and effective treatment option. If you do not want to deal with discomfort, LipiFlow is an excellent eyecare option.

What Causes Dry Eye?

There are a few different things that may cause your eyes to be dry, so it is important to get the official diagnosis from a St. Anthony eye doctor. However, LipiFlow aims to treat one of the most common causes: blocked meibomian glands. These glands are designed to produce a liquid that keeps your eyes moist and helps make up the outer lipid layer. If they are blocked, that oil won't be produced, and your eyes will dry out.

Here are some other common causes of dry eye:

  • • Aging
  • • Side effect of medical conditions
  • • Side effect of certain medications
  • • Irritation of the eye, such as a fan or air conditioner
