Innovative Treatments Provide New Options, Hope to Dry Eye Patients

Dr. Cynthia Matossian of Matossian Eye Associates speaking about new treatments for Dry Eye Syndrome.

Almost 5 million women and men over the age of 50 in the United States suffer from chronic dry eye. Struggling with dry eye has plagued people for years. Fortunately, today’s innovative, effective treatments for dry eye provide a number of new options and hope for patients suffering from this frustrating condition.

LipiFlow

The FDA-approved LipiFlow device specifically treats what is known as Meibomian gland dysfunction. The Meibomian gland is located along the rim of a person’s eye. The gland is responsible for producing an oily substance that prevents the evaporation of moisture from an eye’s all-important tear film. Meibomian gland dysfunction impedes the production of this oily substance, which can lead to chronic dry eye.

LipiFlow is a technology that provides a precise level of heat to the inner eyelid. The application of heat is accompanied by a gentle massage of the area. The net effect of this process is that gland blockage is eliminated, restoring the natural flow of oil within the tear film, which can reduce the symptoms of dry eye.

Lumenis IPL

The Lumenis IPL is an eye care treatment designed to relieve chronic dry eye through the use of what is known as Intense Pulsed Light technology. This treatment protocol, administered by an eye doctor, is painless and undertaken in a doctor’s office. Lumenis IPL works to restore the proper flow of the oily substance generated by the Meibomian gland. This dry eye treatment is sometimes undertaken in conjunction with LipiFlow.

Bruder Mask

The Bruder Mask is another innovative chronic dry eye treatment available to you today. The Bruder Mask is a moist eye heat compress that has been demonstrated effective at relieving the symptoms of chronic dry eye. Specifically, the use of the Bruder Mask works to restore the natural flow of the oils within the tear film. This results in dry eye relief and the restoration of a healthier tear film. The Bruder Mask can be used on its own or in conjunction LipiFlow or Lumenis IPL treatments.

If you have an issue with chronic dry eye, or have other eye care needs, an eye doctor from Matossian Eye Associates is ready to assist you.
