If your eyes are painful, scratchy, red, watering, irritated or feel dry MiBo Thermoflo may offer relief
The MiBo Thermoflo is a therapeutic medical device providing a safe and effective alternative therapy for dry eyes. It uses a proprietary thermoelectric heat pump to help maximize liquefaction of meibum, thus improving preservation and function of the evaporative component of the tear film.
The MiBo Thermoflo supplies continuous controlled heat that is applied to the outer skin of the eyelids along with ultrasound gel for a gentle massage. The heat is absorbed deep into the tissue and breaks down the hardened lipids in the meibomian glands.
With a specifically prescribed therapy regimen, the ducts of the meibomian glands will secrete thinner and clearer lipids which will allow for a healthier tear film.
For best results, it is recommended doing three treatments two weeks apart. After evaluating the patients after the cycle of treatments, it may be determined that they require a fourth treatment. Most patients may go twelve months before needing additional treatments
The heat from the device is not hot enough to injure the eyelids. The treatment is pain free and most patients find it very soothing and relaxing. The treatment itself takes about 20-30 minutes.

Do You Suffer From Dry Eye Syndrome?
If tears do not spread across the front part of your eye whenever you blink, you may be having dry eyes. Likewise, if your tears are not enough to provide constant moisture and lubrication for your eyes, you may be a good candidate for MiBo Thermoflo treatment.
You can tell that your eyes lack moisture if your eyes feel gritty, fatigued, or are sensitive to light. If your eyes ache in dry or windy conditions, itch, or experience blurriness, you may need to see your eye doctor for treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is MiBo Thermoflo?
MiBo Thermoflo is a treatment tool that unblocks tear ducts in the eye by applying thermal heat. The tool releases steady heat of 108 degrees to melt the discharges that clog the tear ducts.
Tear ducts are made up of tiny oil glands in the eyelids called the meibomian glands. These glands release the meibum oil that stops tears from evaporating too fast. Any changes to the quality of your tears or clogging in the meibomian glands may cause dry eyes.
