As eye specialists, we know that patients who suffer from dry eyes need reliable treatment options that will enable them quick and long-term relief from the problem.
We understand the importance of having crisp and clear vision, and we also know that eye fatigue, blurred vision, redness, and everything else associated with dry eyes can impair you from performing everyday tasks and can interfere with your overall quality of life.
As professionals with decades of experience in the field, you can rest assured that our dedicated eye surgeons and professional staff were among the first to use LipiFlow as the most effective treatment to combat dry eye syndrome.

For those who suffer from dry eyes and are also considering other treatment options as well, such as laser vision correction surgery, Diamond Vision offers Lipiflow for only $895 when purchasing with any laser eye surgery.
When it comes to this dry eyes treatment, you should know that LipiFlow has a success rate of roughly around 86%, with about three days to experience symptom improvements. Most patients will continue to see improvements until they are no longer affected by any dry eye-related symptoms.
Even though LipiFlow is painless and among the safest procedures, it can still have minor side effects in some patients. Possible problems may include slight stinging and burning, additional dryness, redness, and light sensitivity. However, you should know that these complications are extremely rare and never permanent.
Patients who are good candidates for LipFlow treatment are previously diagnosed with dry eye syndrome, usually because of MGD or meibomian gland dysfunction.
As such, candidacy for this type of dry eyes treatment will be determined after a detailed eye exam. Your surgeon will evaluate your glands and the tear film. If your eye doctor establishes the presence of blockages of the lack of gland activity, they may recommend LipiFlow.
Oftentimes, dry eye symptoms result from blepharitis, an inflammatory eyelid condition. Irritated, red, and flaky eyelids are usually telltale signs of the condition, and they can lead to even more severe problems, such as dry eyes.
Patients who suffer from blepharitis can take advantage of our NelphEx treatment, and in-office option, that can provide lasting relief from blepharitis and all related problems. The procedure safely removes the debris from the edge of the eyelashes, helps exfoliate the eyelids, and reduces discomfort almost immediately.
During LipiFlow treatment, gentle heat protects the eye while the inner eyelids are massaged with special patented technology.
The combination of the message and the elevated temperature help to soften, release, and break up the blockages that prevent the meibomian glands from functioning properly.
Once the glands are cleared of the blockage, normal oil production will resume keeping the eyes lubricated.
This safe and quick in-office treatment will usually take no more than 10 to 25 minutes, with most patients experiencing no discomfort or pain.
Apart from LipiFlow, we also offer the BlehpEx procedure, a new in-office procedure that is also capable of providing lasting relief from dry eye syndrome and blepharitis. Essentially, the BlephEx treatment involves eyelid cleaning or removing the debris from the edges and along the eyelashes while exfoliating the eyelids and immediately addressing all uncomfortable symptoms that stem from dry eye syndrome and blepharitis.
Blepharitis is a prevalent eyelid condition that causes inflammation. The main cause of the problem is bacterial overgrowth on the edge of the eyelid and around the base of the lashes.
To tackle these problems, our experts offer eyelid cleaning, or the BlephEX treatment, which removes the bacteria and the debris from the affected areas.
During the BlephEx procedure, your provider holds a device that spins a medical-grade, tiny sponge along the base of the lashes and the edge of the eyelids to remove the unwanted bacteria and debris. To ensure maximum efficiency and to prevent additional bacteria spread, providers use a clean micro-sponge for every eye. After the treatment, the eyes will also be washed thoroughly.
The entire procedure takes no longer than ten minutes, and numbing drops are used to eliminate discomfort. Typically, the effects of the BlephEx procedure will last for approximately four to six months.
If you also seek relief from the discomfort and symptoms related to dry eye syndrome, schedule a call with our professionals at our New York City, Atlanta, and Paramus locations and start seeing improvements in your vision as soon as possible.
