A dry eye is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. It may be due to an inadequate quantity of tears or poor quality of tears. You may commonly experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike, or after looking at a computer screen for a long time.
Treatments for dry eyes have traditionally been mainly lifestyle changes, eye drops, and other treatment methods that offer temporary relief. You’ll likely need to take these measures indefinitely to control the symptoms of dry eyes.
Lipiflow Dry Eye Treatment is a new treatment performed in your doctor’s office designed to remove blockages from the Meibomian glands, allowing them to properly function and produce the oil that makes up the lipid layer of the tear film. Sight Avenue offers the best services for lipiflow dry eye treatment in Delhi at an affordable and cost-effective price range.

Eye drops used for the treatment of dry eye are tear supplements and ointments which have to be used repeatedly sometimes even more than 6-8 times a day making it uncomfortable to use and leading to high non-compliance. The tear supplements usually provide only temporary symptomatic relief and not a cure. For mild to moderate dry eye symptoms, these might be enough if you are compliant.
LipiFlow is a Thermal Pulsation System designed to treat Evaporative Dry Eye by unblocking the Meibomian Glands that produce the lipid (oil) layer of our tear film. This innovative technology works by applying warm heat to the inside of the eyelid near the blocked glands while simultaneously providing a gentle massage to the outside of the eyelid. This combination of heat and applied pressure opens the Meibomian Glands, allowing them to secrete the blocked oil. Once this procedure is completed, the glands resume the natural production of tear film oil and most patients experience symptom relief almost immediately. Since Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is a chronic condition, most patients will need to repeat the LipiFlow treatment 2-3 yearly. We provide Lipiflow Treatment in Delhi.
LipiFlow treatment uses localized heat and pressure therapy on the lids to remove blockages from the Meibomian glands, allowing them to properly produce the protective lipid layer of the tear film. Lipiflow is supported by more than 30 patents with studies demonstrating its safe & effective results. It is designed to minimize patient discomfort during a 12-minute treatment that gently massages the eyelids.
Lipiflow activators deliver a combination of heat to the inner lids and simultaneous therapeutic motion to the outer lids removing blockages from the Meibomian glands, thereby resuming normal oil or lipid production which is essential for a healthy tear film, stable vision, and ocular comfort.

According to research, 98 percent of LipiFlow patients are extremely pleased with their results. The outcomes vary from patient to patient, but the effectiveness of a single LipiFlow treatment typically lasts 6 to 12 months.
LipiFlow is an FDA-approved treatment for Meibomian gland dysfunction, which is the most common cause of dry eyes. LipiFlow treats MGD by warming and massaging the inside of the eyelids, which helps to restore healthy oil production and tear quality.
The treatment is usually completed in ten to fifteen minutes during a single office visit. Patients typically experience its full benefits within two months or less. The treatment's effects can last up to two years.
LipiFlow is considered extremely safe, and the FDA has approved its use in the treatment of MGD. The only side effects are minor and temporary in nature, especially when compared to the long-term relief from dry eye symptoms you may experience.
LipiFlow can be repeated without risk. The frequency with which you must repeat treatments is determined by your eyes. Some patients may only require LipiFlow treatments every two years, while others may benefit from them every eight to twelve months.
