Treating MGD with LipiFlow
While there are multiple choices available for treating Meibomium Gland Disfunction (MGD), LipiFlow is the only FDA cleared device for removing gland blockages and restoring gland function. Through advances in the application of Vectored Thermal Pulsation (VTPTM) technology, the LipiFlow treatment utilises a patented algorithm of heat applied to the inner eyelids and massage to remove the obstructions in your meibomium gland.
Typically, we will see you for a dry eye assessment (£45.00) and discuss all options with you to decide if referral to the clinic is worthwhile. If referral is indicated, the Dry Eye Clinic will contact you to arrange a suitable date for your initial visit and consultation before providing treatment. Three months after having LipiFlow treatment, you will be seen by ourselves for a follow-up appointment (at no charge) to assess the improvement in your symptoms.
