Doctors say they’re seeing more and more patients coming in with chronic dry eye but a new 12 minute procedure is helping some patients find tremendous relief.

It’s easy to find the causes for dry eyes including long hours on smart phones, computers and in dry environments.

Many people suffer from dry eyes due to clogged glands in the eye lids.

However, there is a new procedure to clean out those glands called Lip-Flow.

The machine then pulsates, trying to squeeze out any oil that’s clogging those glands.

The process is then repeated.
