Dry Eye Syndrome

More than 20% of the world's population suffer from Dry Eye (sicca syndrome), 40% of whom wear spectacles or contact lenses. The complaints are diverse and are triggered by the strain of our modern lifestyles. Conventional methods only provide short-term relief of the symptoms. 

Constant stress for the eyes

 

Negative environmental influences and modern working and living conditions can contribute towards Dry Eye:

  • Intense work at computers
  • Pollution
  • Ageing process
  • Eye surgery
  • Diet
  • Dry indoor air
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Contact lenses






 

The treatment

The treatment is a long-lasting solution ensuring that the meibomian glands function properly, remedying the cause of Dry Eyes and the resulting eye pain - unlike eye drops that only aim at temporarily alleviating the symptoms.

The remedy is accomplished with TearStim, a device based on intense Regulated Pulsed light technology  (IRPL).

TearStim emits painless light pulses below the eye (in the region of the parasympathetic nervous system). By stimulating the nerve, neurotransmitters are released that stimulate the secretion of the meibomian glands and contribute to restoring normal activity. In addition, the quality of the gland secretion is improved, and the lipid layer of the tear film is stabilised.

How the treatment is performed


1. The treatment only takes a few minutes 
2. The patient sits comfortably in a chair
3. The optician covers the patients eyes with eye protector shells and applies a special gel
4. A series of 8-10 light pulses are aimed at the region below the eyes
5. The treatment is repeated in the same way on the other eye 

Fit eyes after only 3 sessions 

  • Day 0
  • Day 15
  • Day 45
  • Day 76 (optional)
The effect will last from a period from 6 months to 3 years. An annual booster session in the form of a single treatment is recommended.


The result

Dry, red, or watery eyes will be a thing of the past. Even from the first application onwards. Your patients eyes are precious. Look after them!
