Common symptoms of dry eye include dryness, grittiness, soreness, irritation, burning and eye fatigue. May Eye Care is proud to be one of the first eye care centers in the United States to offer the revolutionary LipiFlow treatment to our patients.
“I have suffered with symptoms of dry eye for years. I can’t tell you how excited my colleages and I are to offer LipiFlow as a new treatment option for our patients with dry eye! Our patients are experiencing outstanding results and lasting relief from dry eye thanks to LipiFlow.”

Historically, common dry eye treatments included warm compresses, drops and prescription drugs but patients consistently request a more long-term, efficient solution for relief of dry eye symptoms.
The new LipiFlow treatment addresses the root cause of evaporative dry eye, the most common form of dry eye, by unblocking the meibomian glands that secrete oily lipids. In controlled clinical studies of patients who received a single LipiFlow treatment, the average meibomian gland score at 4 weeks increased by 2-3 times over the baseline condition!
The LipiFlow System is a non-invasive, in-office treatment that takes only minutes to complete for each eye. Many patients report noticeable improvement in the days following the LipiFlow treatment, with relief continuing to improve 3-4 weeks following the procedure.
