Lipiflow treatment involves a device which warms and massages the eyelids restoring a more normal function to the eyelids and Meibomian Glands. The treatment itself is comfortable and easy to undergo.
As chronic blepharitis and dry eye syndrome are both long term conditions which tend to respond to treatment but frequently will recur at some point, Lipiflow is a procedure which may need to be repeated at various intervals depending on a given patient’s condition and response.
Blepharitis and Dry Eye Syndrome are both multifactorial conditions as well frequently requiring a multi-faceted treatment approach which may include prescription eye drops, nutritional supplements, eyelid scrubs and antiseptics, punctal plug procedures as well as occasional use of antibiotics topically or orally and short term use of topical steroids. At Eye Care Professionals, we specialize in dry eye and blepharitis assessment and treatment and will tailor your treatment plan to your specific case and findings.
These can be difficult conditions to treat because of their chronic and recurrent nature. It is important to find a team of providers committed to this process to ensure proper treatment over time in order to prevent some of the late term consequences and complications if left untreated. You will find our team well-versed and ready to help you address these conditions.
