DRY EYE TREATMENT – Guaranteed improvements.
LipiView is a diagnostic device for patients with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), which is linked to Evaporative Dry Eye, the most common type of Dry Eye Disease.
The LipiView technology provides detailed images of your tear film so our doctors can measure the thickness of the lipid (oil) layer (the layer responsible for lubrication and tear evaporation). It’s painless, takes about 5 minutes, and involves simply looking into a camera and blinking normally. Our optometrist gets a detailed image that measures lipid layer thickness between blinks to determine the extent of MGD. LipiView is the diagnostic first half of the LipiFlow treatment, which uses controlled warmth and gentle pressure in order to unclog blocked meibomian glands.
LipiView is the first of its kind. At Classic Eyes EYE CARE CENTRE in Poole we are proud to be one of the few clinics in the UK (and the only one in Dorset) to offer this advanced technology.
Since launching this treatment we have helped hundreds of sufferers. The only stumbling block was the cost as it uses very expensive computerised disposable eye ‘cups’. Due to a worldwide uptake these consumables are now much more affordable. Please pop in to our Poole store for more information.
