It’s important to keep your eyes lubricated after your Lipiflow treatment. Use your drops 4 times a day until your follow up appointment in 6-8 weeks. Your kit will include one box of preservative-free Retaine. Be sure to follow the instructions on the box. If you need additional boxes, feel free to stop in, we sell them in our optical store.
