How does it help Dry Eye Syndrome?
TempSure Envi has an added advantage of delivering therapeutic heat energy to “unclog” the inflamed and blocked oil (Meibomian) glands. An anesthetic eye drop is placed in the eye and an eye shield is inserted to protect the eyes. The Tempsure Envi device delivers gentle heat and massages the eyelids to a temperature of 42 degrees to the blocked glands. The oil glands get a fresh start and in a matter of a few weeks, the eyes feel sufficiently moist and comfortable! When the glands are free and clear of blockage, they will function properly to keep the tears on the eye’s surface.
The frequency of the treatment varies depending upon the degree of the underlying inflammation and the recurrence of the dry eye symptoms. Meibomian Gland Disease is the leading cause of dry eye and ocular discomfort, and it is now treatable with this radiofrequency device!
