Dry Eye Treatment?

There are 2 general ways to treat dry eyes:

  • Eye drops (treating the symptom)

  • Reviving the glands (treating the underlying cause)

Typical treatments for dry eye Include over-the-counter eye drops, prescription eye drops, nasal sprays, oral medications, and warm compress over the eye. These need to be performed daily to maintain therapy.

Innovative EyeCare leverages advanced treatment technologies to treat the underlying cause of the most prevalent type of dry eye issues from inflammation and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).

INMODE Lumecca Intense Pulse Light treatment (IPL) works to control the inflammatory process and to stop the vicious cycle of inflammation and to reduce the need for medications.

IPL is used to treat:

  • Ocular rosacea - the powerful bursts of light close off blood vessels that release inflammation in ocular rosacea causing dry eye.

  • Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

  • Inflammatory dry eye - helps to decrease bacteria around eyelids.

INMODE Forma Radiofrequency treatment (RF) uses Radio-Frequency energy to generate heat which is applied to the skin around the eyes. This heat stimulates collagen formation, bringing white blood cells, and stem cells to the skin around your eyes while reducing inflammation. This treatment aids in opening up clogged meibomian glands, allowing for improved tear production and secretion.

As a an added benefit and noticed side effect, IPL and RF stimulate collagen production by smoothing wrinkles and eliminate dark spots for younger looking eyes.

*Note* These INMODE devices are FDA approved for cosmetic and dermatology uses, it is not specifically FDA-approved for dry eye and it is considered an off-label use for dry eye. The Arizona Board of Optometry has determined that the scope of practice for optometrists with IPL is for the medical purpose of treating dry eye and inflammation affecting a patient’s vision.
