LipiFlow For Dry Eyes In Chandler AZ
Do you live in the Chandler area of Arizona and suffer from problems with dry eyes? Here at Insight Eyecare & Eyewear, we can help you with that. We have a long history of treating a plethora of eye conditions including dry eye. We utilize the LipiFlow procedure to help patients just like you in the greater Chandler area find lasting relief from dry eye.
What is LipiFlow & Dry Eye Treatment?
LipiFlow is a 12-minute dry eye treatment that utilizes a medical device to relieve the primary cause of dry eye, clogged glands in the eyelids. It represents more than a decade of committed research and holds in an excess of 30 patents, while providing drug-free treatment for dry eye and related conditions.
This device uses gentle pressure and heat to unclog the glands which are responsible for producing the oil that is in your tears. When these glands are clogged, the oil is not released, which causes your tears to quickly evaporate and your eyes to dry out.
If left untreated, simple dry eye can progress into a condition known as Blepharitis. This is an inflammation that occurs after extended clogging of the oil glands. The symptoms of this advanced condition are similar to those of dry eye only more extreme and include:
- Swollen, itchy, and red eyelids
- Feeling like there is something in your eye
- Light sensitivity
- Burning sensation in the eye
- Blurred vision
While there is no cure for Blepharitis, prevention might be achieved through treatment of clogged oil glands via the LipiFlow procedure. It can also be used to treat the condition if it does develop and relieve the symptoms for limited periods of time.
