Comprehensive dry eye treatments

At our dry eye clinic, we offer a range of advanced treatments designed to provide effective relief from dry eye syndrome. Our personalized approach ensures that each patient receives the most suitable care for their specific condition. Read on to explore our main treatment options.

Standard treatments

For milder dry eye symptoms, we offer treatment options tailored to your specific needs, including both medicated and non-medicated eye drops. These drops are prescribed to provide targeted relief from dry eye symptoms, helping to restore comfort and improve your eye health. Our expert team ensures that you receive the most suitable drops for your condition, enhancing tear production and quality.

In addition to eye drops, we provide personalized at-home treatment plans and lifestyle suggestions to support your eye health. These plans include practical tips and strategies to manage and alleviate dry eye symptoms effectively. By incorporating these recommendations into your daily routine, you can achieve lasting relief and maintain optimal eye health.

PGRF drops

At VisionPros, we offer advanced PGRF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors) drops for effective dry eye relief. These drops harness the regenerative properties of growth factors to promote tissue healing and enhance tear production, providing targeted symptom relief and improved eye health.

PGRF drops are specially formulated to address the underlying causes of dry eyes, offering a natural and powerful treatment option. By utilizing the healing power of growth factors, these drops not only alleviate symptoms but also support long-term eye health and comfort.

ZEST treatment

ZEST (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) is an innovative approach to managing dry eye syndrome. This treatment involves a specialized cleansing procedure that eliminates demodex mites, debris and bacteria from the eyelids and meibomian glands, improving gland function and tear quality. By addressing these underlying issues, ZEST helps reduce inflammation and alleviate dry eye symptoms.

The benefits of Zest treatment include improved eyelid hygiene, enhanced meibomian gland function, and significant symptom relief. The procedure is gentle, quick, and non-invasive, typically taking about 15-20 minutes in-office. Regular treatments may be recommended to maintain optimal results.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a cutting-edge treatment for dry eye syndrome, particularly effective for those with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). In addition, IPL can effectively aid patients with dry eye syndrome exacerbated by Rosacea. IPL uses precise light pulses to target and reduce inflammation around the meibomian glands, which helps improve the quality and flow of the oil produced by these glands. This process is essential for maintaining a healthy tear film and reducing tear evaporation.

The benefits of IPL therapy include reduced inflammation, enhanced meibomian gland function, and significant relief from dry eye symptoms. The procedure is quick, non-invasive, and typically well-tolerated, providing patients with lasting comfort. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes, and a series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results based on the presentation and evidence-based recommendations in the literature

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy is an advanced treatment for dry eye syndrome, particularly effective for those with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). RF uses controlled heat to stimulate the meibomian glands, enhancing their function and improving the quality of the tear film. This process helps to liquefy the thickened meibum (oil) within the glands, promoting better oil flow and secretion. The heat also encourages collagen production and improves gland function, thereby alleviating symptoms of dry eye associated with MGD.

The benefits of RF therapy include improved gland function,  increased collagen production at the level of the meibomian glands, reduced symptoms, and long-lasting relief. The procedure is comfortable, quick, and non-invasive. Each session involves applying RF energy to the skin around the eyes, taking about 15-20 minutes. A series of treatments may be recommended for the best results.
