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. Your doctor 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 Dry Eye Institutes of America™, we are proud to be one of the few Dallas/Fort Worth area clinics to offer this advanced technology.
