If you are one of the millions of people suffering from dry eye syndrome, you may have heard of LipiFlow treatment. LipiFlow is a technology that heats and expresses the meibomian glands to improve the flow of oil into the tears and relieve dry eye symptoms. While LipiFlow is an effective treatment, it can also be expensive.
At Amplify EyeCare, we offer an affordable alternative to LipiFlow treatment. Our technology, the OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch, works similarly to LipiFlow but at a lower cost, making it accessible to more patients.
The OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch uses heat and gentle pressure to stimulate the meibomian glands and improve the flow of oil into the tears. Similar to LipiFlow, the OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch is a non-invasive treatment that takes about 12 minutes to perform.
During the treatment, a small device is placed over your eyelids, which delivers controlled heat to the meibomian glands. This heat is designed to melt the hardened oil and open up the blocked ducts. After the heat, the device applies gentle pressure to the eyelids to express the oil from the glands. This helps to clear the blocked ducts and restore the proper flow of oil into the tears.
The OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch treatment offers several benefits for patients with dry eye syndrome. Here are some of the key benefits:
Affordable: Compared to LipiFlow treatment, the OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch is more affordable, making it accessible to more patients.
Non-invasive: The OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any incisions or injections, making it a safer and more comfortable option.
Quick and Convenient: The OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch treatment takes only 12 minutes to complete, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Effective: Like LipiFlow, the OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch has been shown to be effective in improving the flow of oil into the tears and relieving dry eye symptoms.
A comparison between the prices of LipiFlow and OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch treatments can help individuals who suffer from dry eye symptoms make an informed decision about the most cost-effective treatment option.
While LipiFlow treatment can cost patients anywhere between $700 and $1750, the OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch treatment is much more affordable.
OCuSOFT® Thermal 1-Touch has received excellent feedback from patients, providing immediate relief from discomfort and improving the tear film break up time significantly. Additionally, if a patient's meibomian glands are exceptionally stubborn, the Thermal 1-Touch treatment can be repeated at no extra cost, making it an even more attractive option for individuals seeking long-term relief from their dry eye symptoms.
