A revolutionary treatment for dry eye syndrome
The LipiFlow® treatment is offered by our specialized optometrists for the treatment of dry eyes.
What many people with dry eyes don't usually realize, is that it is often caused by Meibomian gland dysfunction. When the tiny Meibomian glands located in the eyelids stop working, they are unable to protect the tear film, a thin layer of fluid that covers the exterior surface of the eye.
The LipiFlow® is a revolutionnary thermal pulsation system that uses a device to heat up and massage away the blockage in just 12 minutes.
We offer this option to all patients referred to us for whom this treatment is recommended.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK ?
The procedure centers around the breakthrough Vector Thermal Pulse Technology™ (VTP)
After an initial anesthetic drop, no drugs are required for the procedure
The LipiFlow system safely delivers therapeutic energies to the meibomian glands while protecting the delicate structures of the patient’s eye
As a result, the obstructed meibum is liquefied and pushed up and out of the gland orifices
Contoured design vaults the cornea and protects the eye
Heat and pressure are regulated with redundant sensors

The LipiFlow® system takes only 12 minutes to complete a full procedure.
This treatment is the result of a 10-year dedicated scientific research. Its safety and efficiency are guaranteed.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND LIPIFLOW®
A vaulted design protects the cornea while multi-point sensors monitor and regulate heat and pressure throughout the treatment. This maximizes results and minimizes discomfort. Along with force equalization, the eye is protected from heat and pressure while a nominal therapeutic temperature of 42.5 degrees Celsius is applied directly to the inner eyelid where the glands are located, while protecting the eyelid or delicate structures of the globe.
Proprietary heating technology ensures precise temperature regulation with continuous feedback and consistent heat application to the meibomian glands. The insulated and vaulted design of the Activator protects the cornea from unsafe temperatures.
Intelligent pressure feedback loop sends pulsed sequences to expel blockages and stagnant material from the gland. The custom pressure sequence maximizes gland clearing while device design protects the eye from unnecessary intraocular pressure.
The causes of dry eyes are numerous. For a treatment that meets your needs, book an appointment with one of our specialists.
