What is Evaporative Dry Eye?
If you suffer from chronic dry eye symptoms, your condition may be related to an inadequate protective layer of oil in your tears.
As many as 86% of patients experience dry eye symptoms caused by
evaporative or lipid-deficient dry eye.
Your tears are made up of three layers:
Evaporative Dry Eye disease is most often caused by a blockage or obstruction in the meibomian glands, which can lead to a lipid deficiency in the tears.
The LipiFlow® treatment works to unblock glands, improve oil secretions and provide symptom relief as well.
If your doctor determines that blocked glands are at the root of your dry eye condition and you are a candidate for vision care in the Dry Eye Clinic, you can now be treated with the LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System.
