Is LipiFlow any better than home therapies?
Yes, absolutely! You can think about LipiFlow as being similar to the professional clean and polish your dental hygienist performs once or twice a year using specialist tools.
This is a far more effective process than what you can accomplish at home even with regular brushing and flossing.
LipiFlow is often used to kick-start effective management of evaporative dry eyes where other therapies (home and inhouse) have proved ineffective. LipiFlow is a relatively expensive treatment, and is often reserved for more established dry eyes. It can lead to spectacular results in suitable patients. It can be a game-changer in cases of stubborn dry eyes that haven’t responded to treatments such as BlephEx or IPL.
