After completing your comprehensive dry eye exam, if MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction) is determined to be the cause of your dry eye disease, IPL treatments may be recommended. OptiLight with Lumenis patented Optimal Pulse Technology uses precise, intense broad-spectrum light to reduce inflammation – one of the key underlining factors in dry eye disease due to MGD.
Constantly rubbing your eyes, forcing yourself to blink, depending on eye drops to achieve only temporary relief - it all prevents you from getting the most out of your life. Even if it feels like you've already tried everything, we are here to prove you still have options.
Top causes of dry eyes are environmental factors, meibomian gland dysfunction, menopause in women, contact lens use, vitamin A deficiency as well as certain medications and diseases. Get to the root of your dry eye problem by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Benjamin.

Dry eye is a common condition that affects millions of people. It can cause discomfort, redness, and even blurred vision. Fortunately, there is a solution! At Benjamin Eye Institute, we offer Lipiflow treatment, an FDA-approved therapy that provides lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and MGD.
Your eyes require moisture to stay healthy and comfortable. When the delicate moisture barrier of your eyes is compromised, it can affect not only how you feel but also your ability to see clearly. While you may never have heard of the Meibomian glands in your eyes, they play a crucial role in the overall health of your eyes. Furthermore, MGD may be one of the most common disorders of the eye that you might not have heard of. At Benjamin Eye Institute, we offer the perfect solution with LipiFlow. This relaxing treatment has been known to be one of the best MGD treatments.
We are pleased to share the news that we have a wonderful alternative to drops or warm compress for dry eyes in our clinic. Smart machine LipiFlow is an innovative system, which warms the inside and outside of the eyelids with a stream of hot air. Only the eyelid heats up, the stream melts scars, unclogs the glands, and draws everything out of them.
Lipiflow is an FDA-approved dry eye solution! It is a thermal pulsation treatment that relaxes and opens the ducts of meibomian glands, expelling obstructions as these blockages warm up and liquify. Lipiflow is a non-chemical and non-invasive treatment that can even feel therapeutic.
