The Chesapeake Dry Eye Center

TM

A Chesapeake Eye Care Center of Excellence Dr. Maria Scott is proud to announce the Chesapeake Dry Eye Center — the first local practice to offer LipiFlow®, the most advanced, proven technology to treat Evaporative Dry Eye.

What is Evaporative Dry Eye disease? Evaporative Dry Eye disease is most often caused by a blockage in the meibomian glands, which can lead to a lipid (oil) deficiency in the tears. Although there are many treatment options available, traditional methods have proven ineffective for some. The goal is for LipiFlow® to unblock glands, improve oil secretions and provide symptom relief.

Who’s affected? Men and women at any age can be affected; however, Dry Eye increases with age and often affects women after menopause.
