Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye Treatment

We know just how bothersome and uncomfortable dry eyes can be! Whether your tear quality is poor or your eyes don’t produce enough tears, dry eye syndrome can cause extreme symptoms of discomfort, blurry vision, and may even result in damage to the ocular surface. 

Tired of constantly using artificial tears or warm compresses? Now you can say goodbye to the frustrating symptoms of dry eyes!

At our Calgary eye clinic, we are happy to be carrying the latest technology from Lumenis - M22 Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with EndyMed 3DEEP™ radiofrequency energy hybrid treatments for dry eyes. We call it “REVITAL-EYES”. Non-invasive and extremely powerful, this advanced light therapy works to address the root cause of your dry, itchy, or red eyes, AND it erases fine lines and wrinkles all at the same time! So ditch the eye drops, medications, and warm compresses, and welcome long-lasting dry eye relief, and a more youthful appearance with REVITAL-EYES!

REVITAL-EYES Treatments: Combining Lumenis Optima(M22) Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) With EndyMed 3DEEP Radio Frequency (RF) Treatments For Ultimate Results

At Blink Eyewear, our REVITAL-EYES therapy for your Dry Eye treatment involves combining Lumenis Optima™ intense pulsed light (IPL) with EndyMed 3DEEP™ radio frequency (RF) for superior results. It is ideal for patients with lighter to medium skin complexions.

Fully Customized Dry Eye Remedy - Lumenis Optima™ IPL Treatments in Calgary

Approved by the FDA, Optima™ IPL is a revolutionary technology that targets the inflamed blood vessels in your eyelids which contribute to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, a leading cause of chronic dry eye syndrome.

Optima™ IPL Technology Addresses The Root Cause of Dry Eyes For Long-Lasting Relief

The IPL technology uses gentle yet powerful light pulses to penetrate the tissue in your eyelids and target abnormal vessels that are causing inflammation and affecting the normal function of your glands.

Your body’s normal reaction to this treatment will remove the abnormal vessels, thus eliminating any inflammation while improving your skin’s overall appearance.

In addition to this, the controlled light heat works to:

  • Break up oil blockages in the glands that are preventing the production of healthy oils.
  • Target and remove any abnormal blood vessels that are causing inflammation.
  • Break apart any chalazion/styes.
  • Eradicate Demodex mites (this could be linked to some cases of dry eyes).
  • Make it easier to express stagnant meibum from the glands.
  • This proven treatment eliminates any eyelid inflammation with maximum safety and comfort and can be fully customized to suit your condition and skin type.

What can I expect from an EndyMed Radio Frequency Treatment?

The heating of the lids that are produced with this RF treatment has the ability to melt the waxy blockages that obstruct the meibomian glands, resulting in an improvement in dry eye symptoms.

Here’s what you can expect from your RF treatment:

  • The area treated will be cleansed for a cooling gel application.
  • Your therapist then will carefully use the RF handpiece to massage the wand and gel in a circular motion, gradually heating the skin layers around the eye to an optimal temperature that directly targets the collagen fibers.
  • The subdermal heat will clear the blocked Meibomian gland that is responsible for oil production while simultaneously improving the function and health of the oil-producing gland.
  • A fast procedure time of no more than 30 minutes.
 Benefits of EndyMed 3DEEP™ Radio Frequency Treatments For Dry Eye Syndrome

This novel multipurpose radiofrequency treatment is safe, non-invasive and provides long-lasting solutions for dry eye syndrome, and fights wrinkles. Some of the benefits of this treatment include:

  • Quick 20-30 minute treatment.
  • You can return immediately to your daily routine after your session with little to no downtime.
  • Suitable for all skin types and tones.
  • Virtually painless, safe, and effective procedure.
  • Immediate and long-lasting results.
  • Stimulation of collagen production for more youthful-looking skin in the treatment area.
How many Optima™ IPL and EndyMed 3DEEP™ treatments will I require?

Although many patients notice an improvement in their condition after just one treatment, patients that received a series of 4 treatments on average (performed 3-4 weeks apart) have experienced optimal results. Your eye doctor may also recommend maintenance sessions every 12-18 months.

What side effects can I expect? This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure. However, following your session, you may experience some temporary redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treatment area, but these will dissipate quickly. Your eye doctor may ask you to stay out of direct sunlight for a few days following your treatment and to re-apply sunscreen.

Comprehensive Dry Eye Assessment

The first step to an Optima™ IPL and EndyMed 3DEEP™ Radio Frequency treatment is a comprehensive dry eye assessment. Your optometrist will assess your skin type, condition, and medical history to create a fully tailored REVITAL-EYES program that will produce ultimate dry eye relief.

Look Younger While Enjoying Clear and Healthy Vision with Our Facial Spa REVITAL-EYES Treatments

IPL and RF treatments encourage the production of more collagen. This means that after undergoing an Optima™ IPL and/or EndyMed 3DEEP™ Radio Frequency procedure, you may notice the following desirable aesthetic changes in the treatment area:

  • Improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial tightening and lifting
  • Improved skin texture and vibrancy
  • Less noticeable signs of sun damage

Optima™ IPL and EndyMed 3DEEP™ treatments harmoniously work to protect your ocular health and boost the clarity and comfort of your vision, but it also aids in rejuvenating your whole facial skin appearance, helping bring back that youthful look once again at the same time.
