Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye syndrome can be more than just an annoyance; it can significantly impact your quality of life. Our clinic is at the forefront of advanced dry eye treatments, utilizing a synergistic combination of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF), and Muscle Stimulation therapies. This innovative approach is designed to address the root causes of dry eye, providing lasting relief and improved eye comfort.

IPL therapy targets the eyelids, specifically the meibomian glands, which are crucial for healthy tear production. The light pulses help to unblock these glands, reducing inflammation and improving gland functionality. This process helps to stabilize the tear film and reduce the symptoms of dry eye.

Radio Frequency treatment complements IPL by gently heating the deeper layers of the eyelid skin and glands. This helps replace old oil and stimulates collagen production with improved blood flow, further aiding in the restoration of normal gland function and tear production. Our experts performed the trial to achieve FDA approval for this treatment and showed how it can lengthen and repair meibomian glands.

Muscle Stimulation, is a novel approach in dry eye treatment, also developed in our practice. It stimulates and strengthens the muscles around the eyes. This stimulation helps improve the blinking mechanism and better maintains the surface of the eye. This treatment can increase tear quality while also reducing puffiness and eyelid laxity, which are often associated with dry eye syndrome.

What to Expect After Treatment

Patients typically experience no discomfort during these treatments and can return to their normal activities immediately afterward. Rarely, after the session, you may notice a slight redness or warmth in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few hours.

The full benefits of this combined treatment approach are often realized after a series of sessions. Patients usually report a significant reduction in dry eye symptoms, including less irritation, reduced dryness, and an overall improvement in eye comfort.

It's important to follow any specific post-treatment care instructions provided by our specialists, including the use of any recommended eye drops or other therapies to enhance and prolong the treatment effects.

Is This Dry Eye Treatment Right for You?

This treatment is suitable for individuals experiencing dry eye symptoms, especially for those who have not found relief with standard treatments. It's especially beneficial for those with meibomian gland dysfunction or related eyelid inflammation.
