Your eye doctor can recommend treatment if you suffer from dry eye syndrome. If you are looking for long-lasting relief, you can learn more about EnVision.
MGD is the leading cause of ocular discomfort and dry eye syndrome. The eyelid glands are responsible for meibum or oil production for the tear film. When the glands are dysfunctional or blocked, they do not produce adequate oil. Yet, this oil is vital for keeping the eye surface lubricated. It leads to irritation, dryness, and inflammation. Eye doctors can recommend therapies that help to treat dry eye due to MGD.
EnVision offers a drug-free, non-surgical therapy to improve an individual’s vision and eye health. The in-office treatment targets meibomian gland dysfunction, reducing symptoms of dry eye syndrome. An ophthalmic device uses multiple programmable modalities to deliver precise ocular treatments.
Small bipolar radiofrequency (RF) and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) applicators provide precise depth control. This is vital for accurate treatment of the delicate periorbital region. With EnVision, patients can enjoy long-lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.
Morpheus8 radiofrequency can provide lasting relief for chronic dry eye. Dry eye professionals recommend Morpheus8 to restore meibomian gland function. The treatment results in a smoother, healthier eye appearance. The patients also experience reduced dryness and discomfort.
The radiofrequency treatment delivers highly targeted energy to the meibomian glands. Morpheus8 radiofrequency uses tiny needles to deliver RF energy. The energy melts the blockage-causing debris to restore gland function.
An eye exam will determine if you are a good candidate for EnVision. The doctor will develop a custom treatment plan to suit your needs.
During therapy, patients experience a warm sensation in the treatment area. The warmth results from the device transmitting RF energy to the meibomian glands. Patients report little or no discomfort during the procedure. The treatment results are immediate. Patients receive post-procedure instructions and supplements that help to improve tear quality.
