Have you struggled with eye dryness, irritation, light sensitivity, vision fluctuations, contact lens intolerance and eye fatigue? You may be a candidate for a new treatment called LipiFlow (watch video below to learn more).
Unlike traditional treatments (e.g., warm compresses, wetting drops and ointments) that address dry eye symptoms, LipiFlow treats the root cause, the obstructed Meibomian glands. The goal of unblocking the glands is to allow them to resume their natural production of lipids required for a healthy tear film.
In a controlled clinical trial, a majority of patients treated with LipiFlow reported an improvement in overall dry eye symptoms around 6–8 weeks post treatment.
If dry eye is hindering you from the activities you love, we are here to help. Please call or text us at 812-332-2020 or email us at email@example.com to schedule an appointment for a dry eye assessment.

Spring brings a lot of things to mind: Flowers, sunshine, outdoor sports, cookouts, warm weather, and, unfortunately, allergy season. As everyone moves outside with all these wonderful things the warm weather brings, the unlucky majority has to determine how we are going to cope with the itching, sneezing season.
These are common questions and concerns we hear from patients whenever they have something new in their vision. There are several different ways the eyes are affected by these spots or “floaters.” People will notice small transparent floaters from time to time when looking at a bright background (such as the bright sky or a computer screen). But when there is a sudden change in...
