Lipiflow Treatment in Southern NH
There are nearly 30 million people in the United States who have been diagnosed with Dry Eye. Do you find that your eyes feel scratchy, gritty, burn, or constantly tear? Do you find yourself dependent on drops or other medication treatments? You may be one of the millions of people who suffer from Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or commonly known as MGD.
The good news, it’s treatable. Spindel Eye Associates is proud to offer LipiFlow. LipiFlow is for patients who suffer from MGD. MGD occurs when there is a compromise to the meibomian glands located in your eyelids. The meibomian glands produce the protective oily layer of the tear film, oil helps protect the ocular surface layer and prevents tears from evaporating. When the oil is missing you then experience more sensitivity to computer use, reading, air conditioning, and other daily activities. LipiFlow is FDA-cleared for removing gland blockages and restoring gland function. LipiFlow is a pain-free procedure where thermal pulsations massage the eyelids, massaging out the old obstructions and restoring naturally flowing oil.
