Do your eyes feel scratchy, gritty and dry? Are you experiencing blurred vision or sensitivity to sunlight? Does computer work, reading, or driving exacerbate these symptoms? Do eye drops or warm compresses never seem to provide enough help? You may have a chronic condition know as Evaporative Dry Eye.

Evaporative dry eye occurs when the water in the tears evaporates faster than normal, due to an insufficient lipid (oil) layer on the tear film. This deficiency of oil may result from a blockage in the oil-producing glands in the eyelids, known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

At Georgia Vision Center we will evaluate your symptoms, tear film and gland function to determine the underlying cause of your Dry Eye symptoms. It’s important to treat this chronic disease early, to avoid permanent loss of gland function, additional cell damage, or visual deterioration.

There is relief for your dry eye symptoms. Georgia Vision Center is now treating patients in North Georgia with a groundbreaking technology known as LipiFlow.

What is LipiFlow? For many people, LipiFlow means relief. LipiFlow treats the leading cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, not just the symptoms. The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a revolutionary way to treat Evaporative Dry Eye caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Opening and clearing blocked glands allows the body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for the tear film. The result may eliminate the uncomfortable symptoms associated with Evaporative Dry Eye. In time, with this treatment and proper attention, your chronic dry eye symptoms should diminish significantly – leaving you virtually worry-free.

In a clinical study, 79% of patients reported improved overall dry eye symptoms (ranging from 10% to 100% improvement) within four weeks of a single LipiFlow treatment. LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation technology applies heat to the inner eyelids and gentle pressure, releasing lipids from the Meibomian glands. The procedure is fast, virtually painless, and takes place right in our office.

Candidates for LipiFlow can complete treatment immediately. Call (706) 896-3303 today to schedule your evaluation and stop suffering from chronic dry eye symptoms.
