The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a medical device that treats meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) as well as dry eye syndrome associated with MGD.
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
The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System was developed by Tear Science and Johnson & Johnson Vision, reputable companies with a long history in the medical eye care industry. The Lipiflow System represents more than 10 years of dedicated research and is protected by more than 30 patents.
