Lipiflow

Wellish Vision Introduces a Breakthrough Treatment For Dry Eye Disease.

Wellish Vision Institute is proud to bring our Las Vegas patients an advanced, new, FDA-approved treatment for dry eye. LipiFlow is a new procedure to help patients suffering from evaporative dry eye because of blocked meibomian glands. These are the glands that produce the oil layer of tears. When there is not enough of the oil layer, the water layer evaporates too quickly, causing evaporative dry eye.

How Lipiflow Works

With Lipiflow®, evaporative dry eye is solved at the root of the problem, in the case, the meibomiam glands. Warm pressure is gently applied to the eyelid and mebomiam glands. After a few minutes of warmth, pressure and gentle pulsations, the meibomiam glands often become unclogged, allowing lipid oils to flow normally once again. A recent study shows that 79% of patients who underwent Lipiflow saw improvements in as little as 4 weeks, while many claimed complete symptom relief.
