Lipiflow®

LipiFlow® Treatment

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.

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus describes a cornea that weakens as collagen fibers deteriorate, causing the cornea to adapt a cone-like shape. Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful. Call any of our offices and ask to speak to the Vision Correction Surgical Coordinator, or use the contact form below.

It's estimated that a million or more Americans have glaucoma and don't even know it. People with glaucoma often do not experience any symptoms until they begin losing their peripheral vision. One of the scariest things about glaucoma is that it usually has no symptoms in the early stages, earning glaucoma the name "silent thief of sight." Anyone can be at risk, so it's important to have your vision regularly examined.
