Dry Eye

Dry Eyes No More - Gulf Coast Eye institute Can Help

More than 100 million people worldwide suffer from dry eye, which can be caused by a variety of factors. This condition is often persistent, painful and annoying. Common symptoms of dry eye include dryness, burning, grittiness, soreness, irritation and eye fatigue.

Dry eye can hamper life and work activities, including making it difficult to work at a computer monitor. At Gulf Coast Eye Institute, we offer a variety of treatments for dry eye depending on its source and severity.


For many people, LipiFlow means relief from dry eye. LipiFlow treats the leading cause of Evaporative Dry Eye, not just the symptoms.

The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a revolutionary way to treat Evaporative Dry Eye caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Opening and clearing blocked glands allows the body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for the tear film. The result may eliminate the uncomfortable symptoms associated with Evaporative Dry Eye.

LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation technology applies heat to the inner eyelids and gentle pressure, releasing lipids from the Meibomian glands. The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and is performed in office at Gulf Coast Eye Institute.

In a clinical study, 79 percent of patients reported improved overall dry eye symptoms within four weeks of a single LipiFlow treatment.
