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.
