What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye can often make eyes feel gritty and dry, and cause them to water a lot. It’s caused by blockages in the oil-producing glands in the eyelids. This in turn causes the water in tears to evaporate more quickly than normal because of the lack of oil.

9 out of 10 dry eye symptoms are caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

How does dry eye treatment work?

The Tear-Stim is based on intense regulated Pulsed light technology (IRPL) from Essilor . The Indra & Tear-Stim technologies are one of the most advanced technologies in the world for the treatment and management of Dry Eye. The effects of Dry eye treatment can last from 6 months to 3 years. It is recommended that you should have an annual booster session in the form of a single treatment.

Step 1
At your consultation, you'll be given an eye examination and a scan, which looks at your tear film in greater detail. This only takes around 10 minutes and if you're suitable for treatment, can be carried out on the same day.

Step 2
The treatment itself takes around 10 minutes. It's a Non evasive treatment which uses gentle pulses of IRPL, that stimulates the nerve to release neurotransmitters. these transmitters stimulate the secretion the meibomian glands, contributing to normal activity. 

Step 3
Your Meibomian glands are gently opened up, allowing your body to create the natural oils that are essential for keeping your eyes moist and comfortable. 

The treatment needs a minimum
3 sessions to make a difference
Session 1: Day 0
Session 2: Day 15
Session 3: Day 45
Review Session: Day 60
Session 4 (only if required): Day 75
