The procedure centers around the breakthrough Vector Thermal Pulse Technology™(VTP)

After an initial anesthetic drop, no drugs are required for the procedure

The LipiFlow system safely delivers therapeutic energies to the meibomian glands while protecting the delicate structures of the patient’s eye

As a result, the obstructed meibum is liquefied and pushed up and out of the gland orifices

Contoured design vaults the cornea and protects the eye

Heat and pressure are regulated with redundant sensors


Sjö is a diagnostic test that combines traditional and novel, proprietary biomarkers to create an advanced diagnostic panel for the early detection of Sjögren’s syndrome in your patients.
