Lifetime Optometric is the first office in Central California to offer the Lipiflow Procedure, the first FDA approved procedure to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. This disease is a leading cause of dry eyes.
We also offer other dry eye procedures and treatment including Meibography, Prokera, and the Sjo Test. Dr. Recalde has been treating patients for dry eyes for over a decade and is a speaker for dry eyes both locally and nationally.

HOW THE LIPIFLOW SYSTEM WORKS
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.
The Oculus Keratograph helps optometrists in accurately diagnosing Dry Eye Syndrome and documenting the findings. If treatment is necessary, the Keratograph® 5M can compare the before and after treatment results to evaluate the success of the treatment.
PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage devices are used by eye doctors around the world to heal and treat eye diseases such as keratitis, common dry eye, recurrent corneal erosions, filamentary keratitis, persistent epithelial defects, neurotrophic corneas, herpetic ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases.
