MiBo Thermoflo Treatment
What is it?
The MiBo Thermoflo is a therapeutic medical device providing a safe and effective alternative therapy for dry eyes. It uses a heat pump to help maximize liquefaction of oils in your glands, thus improving preservation and function of the evaporative of the tear film.
How Does MiBo Thermoflo Treatment Work?
The MiBo Thermoflo supplies continuous controlled heat that is applied to the outer skin of the eye lids along with ultrasound gel for a gentle massage. The heat is absorbed deep into the tissue and breaks down the hardened lipids in the meibomian glands.
After The Treatment
Successful meibomian gland expression helps increase the quality of oil production of the glands and decrease dry eyes symptoms. Patients usually only need a single session, but you can benefit from regular treatments. Your eye doctor can diagnose if you need additional procedures. He or she can also teach you how you can do meibomian gland massage at your own home as a long-term MGD management.
