When you visit our Chicago, Highland Park, or Hoffman Estates practices for a dry eye consultation, we will conduct a series of diagnostic tests and evaluations to assess your symptoms. If your results show more-than-mild symptoms, we will take a series of highly detailed images of your tear film with the advanced LipiView® interferometer. This non-invasive process will take just a few minutes. A special light will be directed onto the front surface of your eye to give your doctor a closer look at your tear film.
If our diagnostic testing uncovers your need for evaporative dry eye treatment, our LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation technology will help manage your symptoms. During the procedure, we will combine directed heat and pulsatile pressure to relieve the blockage of your meibomian glands. Lasting only about twelve minutes, LipiFlow® is the only dry eye treatment available that addresses the syndrome at its source. Other treatments provide temporary relief, but LipiFlow® can provide long-lasting results.
Clinically proven to provide sustained results, LipiFlow® treatment improved dry eye symptoms in over 79% of its clinical study patients. Combined with the unmatched expertise of the professionals at Chicago Cornea Consultants, Ltd., this revolutionary dry eye treatment can improve your vision, your comfort, and your quality of life.
If you’re struggling with the discomfort of dry eye syndrome, and you have exhausted other treatments with no success, it’s time to contact our board-certified ophthalmologists in Chicago, Highland Park or Hoffman Estates about LipiFlow®. Don’t wait another day to be rid of itchy, dry, uncomfortable eyes.
