Dry Eyes

 

Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults, especially women. People with dry eyes may experience symptoms of irritation, gritty, scratchy or burning eyes, a feeling of something in their eyes, excessive watering, and blurred vision. Advanced dry eyes may damage the front surface of the eye and impair vision. Treatments for dry eyes aim to restore or maintain the normal amount of tears in the eye to minimize dryness and related discomfort and to maintain eye health. We offer state of the art, in office, dry eye treatment utilizing the latest technology in a spa like experience.

 

The MiBoFlo Thermoflo® is a therapeutic device providing an alternative therapy for dry eyes. It uses a proprietary thermoelectric heat pump to help maximize liquefaction of meibum, thus improving the preservation and function of the evaporative component of the tear film.

This therapy is aimed at improving function of the meibomian component of the tear film.


The thermo control operates within a plus or minus 3% variance to maintain an effective treatment temperature of 108 degrees. The MiBoFlo has an adjustable timer allowing for the versatility to treat various levels of dry eye. 

 

 

Vision Source Mesquite was one of the first private practices in Texas to treat patients with the MiBoFlo.
