What is MGD and What Are the Symptoms?

If you are unable to produce tears to the point where your eyes are often itchy, dry and red, then you may have a dry eye condition. This is an eye condition caused by a lack of lubrication in the eye. Dry eye is often the result of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which happens when your eyelid oil glands,  aka meibomian glands stop producing oil. This production keeps our eyes moist and allows us to produce a healthy amount of tears. If this sounds like your eye condition please call us today at Complete Eye Care of Medina. We offer LipiFlow treatments to treat dry eye in our patients who are appropriate candidates

How Does A Medina Optometrist Treat Dry Eye?

Here at Complete Eye Care of Medina we treat dry eye with a variety of products and regimens, one of which is Lipiflow treatments. Note that we only use this treatment for adult patients. LipiFlow was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015. It is the only device approved for the treatment of meibomian gland dysfunction. Using LipiFlow we are able to provide the best dry eye treatment in Medina, Maple Grove, and Plymouth. Using this treatment your optometrist is able to restore your eyes’ ability to produce oil. As this is an FDA approved treatment your Medina optometrist will confidently use LipiFlow to treat your dry eye condition. 

Is LipiFlow Safe for Treating Dry Eyes?

Yes, as it is FDA approved the federal government has completed a multitude of tests on this treatment for dry eyes. The treatment involves a therapy of localized heat and pressure. After a single treatment you will see results over the long term. We use LipiFlow to treat chronic conditions involving eyelids in our adult patients. There are instances when LipiFlow would not be safe as determined by your Medina optometrist. These vary but include having ocular surgery, injury, infection, herpes, or inflammation in recent months. Your dry eye doctor in Medina will determine if you are a prime candidate for the LipiFlow System of treating your dry eyes. 

To find out more about the use of LipiFlow as a dry eye treatment in Medina, give our office a call. We are an industry leader in the treatment of MGD using this innovative new approach. Being at the forefront of treating MGD using LipiFlow, we have the experience and training necessary to use this system. Thank you for considering Complete Eye Care of Medina as we offer the best treatment for MGD. We look forward to helping you improve your vision by offering the innovative dry eye treatment called LipiFlow.
