Do you have...
Are you tired of putting in multiple over-the-counter drops every day? Or spending hundreds of dollars on prescription drops that just don't seem to help?
Dry Eye Disease (DED) happens when either the eyes don't produce enough tears or when the tears aren't well balanced. Healthy tears keep vision clear and the eyes comfortable.
DED can happen because of prescription medications, hormones, aging, genetics, or the environment.
Women over the age of 50 have double the risk of developing DED than men of the same age.
It is always best to treat the cause of a disease and not just the symptoms. Blocked or malfunctioning glands in the eyelids are the most common thread for most patients with DED.
Light and heat will melt oils from the eyelid glands and allow them to function properly again.
Waco Vision Source uses epi-c plus® as our flagship solution featuring two core technologies, Light Modulation® LLLT, and Optimal Power Energy® IPL, for optimal, non-invasive treatment of most ocular surface conditions from Dry Eye Disease (DED) induced by Meibomian Glands Dysfunction (MGD) and other inflammatory conditions in the periorbital area.
IPL treatments provide light, while LLLT provides heat, that work together to:
Heat glands to melt solids and clear the glands
Kill demodex mites and bacteria that live on the skin and cause inflammation
Stimulate blood flow to improve healing and reduce inflammation
Reduce Rosacea and associated inflammation
Many patients notice improvement after one treatment!
The treatments also stimulate collagen formation in the skin which can lead to younger looking eyes and surrounding skin. A full course of 4 sessions is needed to receive the full benefit.
