Tired of burning, itchy, irritated eyes?
Dry eye condition is a common problem affecting up to 20% of the Australian population and mainly caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Females are more affected than males, and symptoms increase with age.
The main symptoms of dry eyes are itchy, watery, irritated eyes. When advanced, dry eye causes great discomfort in day to day life and can prevent us from performing everyday tasks such as working on a computer or staying in an air-conditioned environment. The excessive use of smartphones, artificial lights and air pollution can exacerbate the problem.
Over the last 3 years a proven treatment using IPL technology has provided dry eye sufferers with long-lasting relief. Much more than just treating dry eyes, the IPL technology also helps to prevent the disease and treat it at a very early stage.The treatment is quick, gentle, and over 86% of patients experience significant improvement after just 3 sessions. During the treatment, a special light targets the nerve linked to the Meibomian Gland, stimulating it so it can return to its normal function and free the eye from dryness.
