LipiFlow® Treatment in Washington, D.C. and Chevy Chase, MD

Dry eye’s itchy, uncomfortable symptoms get in the way of your daily life, but they don’t have to. Washington Eye Doctors can help you find relief with world-class LipiFlow®!

What is LipiFlow®?

One of the most common causes of dry eye disease is meibomian gland dysfunction – when eyelid glands that produce oil become clogged. This starves your tears of oil and makes them evaporate much faster. The FDA Approved LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System utilizes therapeutic heat, paired with light pressure, to gently massage the inner lid and release blocked glands. Once oil production is restored, the lipid layer is replenished, for tears that don’t evaporate and soothed eyes.

How LipiFlow treatment works?

How does LipiFlow® Work?

Dry eye patients love LipiFlow® because it’s quick to administer, with impactful and long-lasting results! We’ll first use the LipiScan imaging device to examine your meibomian glands. After we apply numbing drops to soothe any discomfort, the machine’s activators are placed over your eyes to deliver targeted thermal heat and gentle pressure to liquify gland obstructions. The entire noninvasive process only takes about 12 minutes, with some improvement right away and more over the coming weeks!

I visited Washington Eye Doctors for my dry eyes. Dr. Rosenblatt is awesome, he is very respectful and professional. Zero pressure when you talk to him. After the treatments, I feel absolutely better. Eye dryness is painful, and someone says it's more like a disability than a disorder. I can't agree more. Before I get the treatments, I can't even sit down and type these words for like 15 mins. Now I am not 100% recovered but at least I could work and study like a normal person. I am still using prescribed medications and I am confident that this problem is treatable. If you have dry eyes, try to contact Dr. Roosenblatt is the best advice I could give.

I have been with Washington Eye Doctors for 50 years since the Katz/Kanstroom days. They guided me through bifocals as a kid, contacts as an adolescent and Lasik as an adult. 25 years after Lasik I still have near perfect vision. I just went back for night driving glasses. Always quick, efficient and thorough consistently over the decades.

A group of kind, friendly human beings. I was visiting Washington, D.C. from out of town, ran into a bind, and this practice was able to help me so that I could drive back home. I am so thankful for their help.

The absolute best choice for dry eye! I had been suffering for years, and now my eyes are drastically better after only three months of proper treatment. Dr. Abraham is excellent. He explains things very clearly and listens to concerns with compassion. I really appreciate his help and cannot recommend Washington Eye Doctors highly enough, especially for dry eye patients.

Dr Rosenblatt has been my eye doctor for many years and worked with me to get my proper correction for nearsightedness. My extra-sensitive system was previously over-corrected and his prescriptions enabled my vision to be more relaxed and stabilize. The glasses are high quality and good fit. I’m especially fond of the nearly weightless frames and lenses.
