Lipi Flow Dry Eye Treatment

Advanced, Modern Treatment for Dry Eyes

Dry eye is a chronic condition that can sometimes progress in severity.
Depending on the cause and the seriousness of the dry eye, it may not be
curable. But for many people, dry eye treatment offers relief for dry and
itchy eyes.

Most people suffer from temporarily dry eyes from time to time. The next
time your eyes feel dry or irritated, try these tips:

– Blink more often – we tend to blink less when we are on digital
devices.
– Take “screen breaks”: if you are on a digital device, make sure to
look away from the screen every 20 minutes and look at an object at least
20 feet away, for at least 20 seconds. Many doctors refer to this as the
“20-20-20 rule.”

These suggestions only offer temporary relief from mildly dry and itchy
eyes. Persistent dry eyes, however, are not uncommon. Millions of people
deal with either an oil deficiency or a water deficiency, with up to 85
percent exhibiting some degree of oil deficiency. Unfortunately,
traditional treatments for oil deficiency are not particularly effective.
