The free way to treat it is to use a hot compress and massage your eye lids to get the oil out (prevents your tears from evaporating). The expensive way to treat this is with a Lipiflow procedure ($1,500). Insurance won't cover this. My new doctor said that patients experience 1-3 years of relief after doing the procedure. I am scheduling this soon hopefully. Watch the video see my way of doing it and hear a nice LOW A harmonica.
My LASIK surgeon refused to give me this treatment when I asked for it. He said there wasn't anything wrong with my glands and Lipiflow is just a profit center for doctors. I'm glad I sought another opinion. I'm hopeful this will provide some relief.
