The MiBoThermoflo is a cost effective therapeutic medical device that offers you relief from the suffering of dry eye.
This is achieved by supplying continuous controlled heat at 108° F through a silver eye pad that is applied to the outer skin of the eyelids along with ultrasound gel for a gentle massage which allows the heat to penetrate to the meibomian glands.
It is generally a four treatment procedure. The second treatment is done a week after the initial, the third treatment is done 2-4 weeks after the second and the last treatment is done 2-4 weeks after the third. The doctor may choose to express the glands after any visit to ensure the oils are being removed.
The MiBo Heating Pad with Infrared Heat is a mask that plugs in with a standard USB cord. It is used for temporary relief of dry eyes and when used in conjunction with the MiBo treatment, helps to prolong its results.It is recommended to use this mask at least twice a day for ten minutes. It is completely adjustable with five controlled heat settings, six preset timers and an auto shut-off. This mask is different than your standard hot compress mask in that it is not heated up in the microwave; this means that there is no surface heat but rather a deep thermal heat, similar to the MiBo treatment. It also has a soothing lavender scent.
