LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment in Casper and Douglas, WY

When you suffer from chronic dry eye symptoms, it is important to seek treatment. Otherwise, dry eye can end up causing you significant discomfort and even interfere with your ability to see clearly. Dry eye treatment sometimes involves using warm compresses at home in order to eliminate gland blockages and improve oil production. Other treatments include eye drops and punctal plugs. If you have not had success with these treatment methods, LipiFlow might provide you with more effective relief from dry eye symptoms. 

What Is LipiFlow?

This form of treatment is used for treating dry eye symptoms that are caused by low or poor oil production. Your eyes need these oils in order to keep your tears healthy, which helps clear away debris and improves comfort. This condition, known as meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), occurs when these eyelid glands are unable to secrete an adequate amount of oil or when these oils cause tears to evaporate too quickly. LipiFlow  is a device that produces heat for your eyelid glands. This heat causes blockages of oil to break down, which allows your glands to produce enough oil for your tears. This device is carefully applied to your eyelids for about 12 minutes per treatment. 

Can I Have LipiFlow Done?

Not everyone ends up being a good candidate for LipiFlow treatment. If you are thinking of having this kind of treatment done, our optometrist will take different factors into consideration to determine if you might benefit from it. This will include doing the following:

  • Checking the quality of your tear film to see if oil production is too low
  • Examining your meibomian glands 
  • Assessing how severe your symptoms are
  • Determining how often symptoms occur

Depending on these factors, our optometrist might recommend LipiFlow as a form of treatment for dry eye symptoms caused by MGD. If you are a good candidate for this treatment method, we will fully explain how it works in detail and let you know what to expect during your visits. 

Is LipiFlow Safe?

LipiFlow is used safely to relieve symptoms of MGD. This form of treatment has been approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of dry eye symptoms related to MGD. If you have any concerns about LipiFlow, we encourage you to ask our optometrist for more information. 

How Long Does It Take to Work?

LipiFlow can take about two weeks or less to begin relieving symptoms of dry eye. However, it might take a few months or more to begin experiencing relief if you have severe symptoms. Keep in mind that you can typically resume your regular activities soon after treatment. In order to improve its effectiveness, other kinds of treatment might be recommended, such as warm compresses or eye drops.
