Lipiflow Thermal Pulsation System

Dr Younany performing Lipiflow at Beverly Hills Optometry

Lipiflow is a breakthrough therapy to treat the root cause of obstructive MGD (clogged oil glands and evaporative dry eye).

This fully automated, Thermal Pulsation System heats the Meibomian glands for a constant 12-minute period while the device performs an intermittent pulsing or massaging effect to remove any blockages within the glands.

Prior to the treatment, disposable applicators are inserted internally to protect the cornea from possible heat transfer. While the applicators are in position, they heat the inner surface of the eyelids and have direct contact to the Meibomian glands.

One particular study looked at the benefits of Lipiflow on contact lens wearers with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Impressively, the study showed that a single vectored pulsation treatment increases comfortable wearing time by approximately 4 hours/day.

Another study showed that thermal pulsation therapy may, in fact, improve visual gland structure by up to 10% (suggesting possible regrowth of gland anatomy).
