How to treat dry eye syndrome

More than 20% of the world’s population suffer from dry eye (sicca syndrome). 40% of those wear glasses or contact lenses. Often, the triggers of dry eyes can include everyday stresses and strains of modern lifestyles. Dry eye syndrome is often treated by providing short-term relief of symptoms, but TearStim can take it that step further.
 
Environmental influences, along with modern working and living conditions, can contribute towards dry eye syndrome. This can make everyday vision uncomfortable for your patients, leaving them seeking the right treatment. TearStim can ensure you have the right tools and knowledge to help your patients achieve clear, comfortable vision again.

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






 

Dry eye treatment from TearStim

TearStim can provide a long-lasting solution for dry eye syndrome, ensuring the meibomian glands function properly. This can help to remedy the cause of dry eyes and relieve any eye pain or uncomfortable vision. Previous treatment for dry eyes has only temporarily alleviated the symptoms, whereas TearStim can help the root of the problem.
 
TearStim is a device based on intense regulated pulsed light technology (IRPL). The device emits painless light pulses below the eye, stimulating the nerve to release neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters stimulate the secretion of the meibomian glands, contributing to restoring normal activity. The treatment provided by TearStim can improve the quality of the gland secretion, along with stabilising the lipid layer of the tear film.
 

How TearStim works?

 

The treatment only takes a few minutes, giving you the chance to go the extra mile to help maintain your patients’ eye health. With the patient sitting comfortably in a chair, the optician simply covers the patients’ eyes with protector shells and applies a special gel.
 
A series of 8-10 light pulses are then aimed at the region below the eyes, before being repeated in the same way on the other eye.
 
The treatment needs only 3 sessions to make a difference:

  • Day 0
  • Day 15
  • Day 45
  • Day 76 (optional)

 
The effects of the dry eye treatment can last from 6 months up to 3 years. It’s recommended that you have an annual booster session, in the form of a single treatment.
 
Dry, red or watery eyes can soon be a thing of the past, even from the first application of the TearStim treatment. Look after your patients’ vision with this revolutionary solution today.
