To enter the contest, individuals simply schedule a free LipiView tear analysis by calling Eye Clinic of Austin at (512) 427-1100 and mentioning the word “GIVEAWAY.” After all appointments are complete, Eye Clinic of Austin will perform a random drawing of all candidates who entered and qualify for LipiFlow to determine the winner.
Ophthalmologist and owner of Eye Clinic of Austin, Thomas Henderson, M.D. said, “This new type of tear analysis, LipiView, is the only one of its kind in Austin. It is revolutionizing our understanding of the cause of dry eyes in many patients. Before this device we could not measure the oil layer, the effectiveness of blinks, or the degree of obstruction of the meibomian glands. These are factors in most cases of dry eyes, and they were overlooked because we had no good way to measure them. Now we have an effective test, LipiView, and a tremendously effective treatment, LipiFlow, for meibomian gland disease, which is a factor in up to 75% of dry eye patients.”
Dry eye is one of the most common eye diseases and it often goes undiagnosed because many people believe their symptoms are caused by general eyestrain or allergies. If you believe you may suffer from dry eye, call us today at (512) 427-1100 to schedule your free tear analysis.
