Lipiscan provides safe and effective imaging of the meibomian glands within the eyelids. The integrity of the glands determines the volume, quality and protective nature of our human tears. Patients who demonstrate damaged and dysfunctional meibomian glands will require treatments which act to preserve the remaining healthy glands while also attempting to recover functionality of the distressed glands.
These treatments range from at-home moist heat application and lid massages and ingestion of Re-Esterified Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplements (avoiding Flax-based oils) to advanced treatments such as BlephEx, Prokera and Lipiflow. Each individual patient requires a specific treatment unique to them rather than a "one-size-fits-all" or "kitchen sink" approach. Dr. Conley evaluates every patient to identify which approach will work best for you.
