The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System

LipiFlow-Logo-300x64Triad Eye Institute is proud to offer LipiFlow, a revolutionary treatment for evaporative dry eye. Lipiflow is part of the TearScience® system which is a comprehensive, three-part evaluation of your eyes and their ability to produce tears and properly moisturize your eyes.

Following your comprehensive exam and diagnosis of evaporative dry eye, the LipiView® interferometer will enable Triad Eye to assess your tear film by capturing images that measure the thickness of the lipid (oil) component. This process is non-invasive and takes about five minutes.
