We Now Offer Lipiflow®, an Innovative New Treatment for Dry Eye Disease!
Lake Austin Eye is excited to announce the LipiFlow treatment
LipiFlow® is a new procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, blocked Meibomian glands. Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film. Some treatments attempt to add more liquid to your tears, but without the complex natural oil, tears continue to evaporate faster than produced. At the heart of the LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is the Activator (eyepiece). The Activator uses patented, precisely controlled heat applied to the inner eyelid with adaptive pressure encouraging your body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for your tear film. Its single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment. The treatment is performed right in the comfort of Dr. Cottle’s office. Imagine returning to doing the things you enjoy, without worrying about your eyes. LipiFlow® could be your first step to dry eye relief.
