Dry Eye Therapy


Dry Eye Treatment in London, Ontario

Old North Optometry is proud to be the first office in London trained to provide LipiFlow, the breakthrough treatment for dry eye sufferers. LipiFlow is a procedure designed to treat the root cause of the most common form of Dry Eye—Evaporative Dry Eye disease. This disease is caused by a blockage in your Meibomian glands—located in the upper and lower eyelids—and results in a shortage of oil in your tear film. This lack of oil is called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

LipiFlow Procedure

LipiFlow works by applying controlled heat to the back of the eyelid near the affected glands and slight pressure to the front, helping to unblock the glands and allowing proper oil production to resume. This can slow deterioration and provide symptom relief. Our Optometrists can perform a Dry Eye Assessment which will help uncover the cause of your symptoms and will determine if you are a suitable candidate for the LipiFlow treatment.

Benefits of Dry Eye Therapy

Dye eye therapy is a safe and effective way to improve vision, reduce the risk of dry eyes, and help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. Dye can be used to treat both nearsightedness and farsightedness by helping to adjust how light enters the eye. It also helps protect your eyes from UV rays, reduces glare from computer screens, improves night vision, and helps with focus when reading or looking at objects in the distance. Additionally, dye can help relieve redness associated with allergies or tiredness.
