Treatment For Dry Eye

Dry eye is caused by abnormal blood vessels under the eye surface. It is these blood vessels that are responsible for delivering inflammatory markers to the eye while altering the normal functions of the meibomian glands. Usually, these glands secrete an oily fluid that lubricates the eyes and prevents tears from evaporating. It is the dysfunction or blocking of these glands that prevent the secretion from being released, causing the glands to die out and the eyes to dry out.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is the treatment for dry eye. It targets the root cause of the inflammation to the eye and glands by applying light at a specific wavelength to the surface of the skin around the eyes to destroy the abnormal blood vessels underneath. If the glands have become blocked as a result of the oily fluid being thicker, the heat from the treatment will also warm the glands and loosen up the clogged oils. Afterwards, the blockage of the glands is further released through manual expression, thereby increasing the function of the glands.

Treatment For Blepharitis

The inflammation associated with blepharitis is caused by the buildup of bacteria and debris on the eyelashes. BlephEx is a very effective treatment for blepharitis. This will be concluded after consultation with us. BlephEx treatment can be used alone, and still achieve the same result, or it can be combined with other effective treatment forms. However, it is more effective than the use of eye scrubs alone.

During BlephEx treatment, a soft, medical-grade, micro-sponge is spun along the edge of each eyelid through a handpiece. This process gently unblocks the oil glands, making it clear and comfortable. Do not worry; it is not a painful procedure.

Usually, the benefits and relief of the BlephEx treatment are felt almost immediately. When combined with treatment for dry eye, the benefits are felt significantly. Although it is ideal for you to get the treatment twice a year, however, you can conclude and arrange the best treatment plan that suits you.
