Dry Eyes

DELogo (1)

Do you have dry eyes or wrinkles around your eyes? If so, schedule a consultation today to speak with our doctor at Vizen Optometric Center about getting a dry eye treatment!

Dry eye therapy is a safe, comfortable way to unclog blocked tear ducts while also reducing bagginess and wrinkles around the eyes. Best of all, anyone can be an ideal candidate for this treatment no matter the skin type!

How does it work?

Dry eye therapy, with TempSure Envi, is a non-invasive therapy treatment aimed to decrease dry eyes by minimizing the blockage of oil tear ducts and glands with its warm and soothing technology. Many cases of dry eye are caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), a condition where blocked oil tear ducts do not secrete enough oil, causing your tears to evaporate quickly and leading to the most common ocular surface disease, dry eyes. The advanced radiofrequency technology of TempSure Envi gently raises the temperature of your skin around the blocked oil tear glands, helping to unclog them and reducing your symptoms of dry eyes, burning sensation, redness, gritty feeling, and watery eyes. It has proven to help treat the root of the problem versus masking the symptoms. As a bonus, the treatment rebuilds collagen by smoothing and tightening the skin around your eyes, minimizing the baggy and loose eyelids, and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

What to expect

Each session can range from 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated. Most describe the feeling of the dry eye spa treatment as a relaxing “hot stone massage” for your eyes. It is normal to have some redness right after the treatment, but that goes away quickly.

Even better, there is no downtime when you have a dry eye treatment! You will be able to return to work or to your normal activities immediately!

How many treatments are needed?

Based on the severity of the ocular surface disease, the optimum number of treatments will vary per patient. A series of dry eye treatment sessions are recommended based on the severity of your ocular surface disease. Our team at Vizen Optometric Center will ensure that you feel and look your best before leaving our clinic!

When will I see results?

Immediately! The feeling of dry eyes should instantly feel better and gradually show maximal improvement once all treatments are complete.

In addition, collagen will continue to rebuild over time enhancing the skin around your eyes for a more youthful appearance.
