LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System

How The LIPIFLOW System Works 

⦁ The procedure centers around the breakthrough Vector Thermal Pulse Technology™ (VTP)
⦁ After an initial anesthetic drop, no drugs are required for the procedure
⦁ The LipiFlow system safely delivers therapeutic energies to the meibomian glands while protecting the delicate structures of the patient’s eye
⦁ As a result, the obstructed meibum is liquefied and pushed up and out of the gland orifices
⦁ Contoured design vaults the cornea and protects the eye
⦁ Heat and pressure are regulated with redundant sensors
