Living with dry eye syndrome can be a constant struggle. Symptoms like constant irritation, redness, and a gritty sensation can significantly impact your daily life, making activities such as reading, using a computer, or enjoying the outdoors uncomfortable and even painful.

ZEST treatment offers an innovative solution to these persistent issues.

This advanced treatment is embraced by many seeking effective and sustainable relief from dry eye discomfort.

What is ZEST Treatment?

ZEST (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) is a cutting-edge procedure designed to thoroughly clean the eyelids and remove debris that contributes to dry eye syndrome. This treatment targets and eliminates bacteria and other particles that can clog the meibomian glands, improving tear production and eye comfort.

During a ZEST session, a specialized gel is applied to the eyelids and gently massaged to cleanse the area. This process helps restore the natural function of the meibomian glands, reducing inflammation and enhancing the quality of tears produced. The result is significant relief from dry eye symptoms and improved overall eye health.
