Dry Eye - Harmony
We rely on the latest research and highly advanced technology to diagnose and treat dry eye disease.
What is IPL Therapy?
Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) is an in-office treatment used on dry eyes and styes. The treatment uses specific wavelengths of light to reduce inflammation around the eyes. This allows the oil-producing meibomian glands to produce more lubrication for the eyes, reducing the effects of dry eye.
The therapy targets ocular rosacea and spider veins, which often cause inflammation in the tissues around the eyes. The light energy eliminates the damaged blood vessels and reduces inflammation.
During the procedure, the heat from the light warms and liquefies the oil your body uses to create tear film. IPL therapy can help this oil to move more freely and reduce blockages that cause dry eye symptoms.
What is RF Therapy?
Radiofrequency (RF) delivers high frequency electrical current to the skin to generate heat and stimulate collagen production. This is a safe and effective in-office treatment for your dry eyes.
The meibomian gland is responsible for producing the oil in your tears. The oil is important because it stops your tear film from evaporating too quickly. If the meibomian gland becomes blocked you can experience the symptoms of dry eye. This is known as Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).
The heat from RF helps to melt the thick oil secretions and unclog the meibomian gland, improving the quality of your tears. RF can also reduce inflammation around your eyes that could be contributing to your dry eye symptoms.
