Are you suffering from itchy and irritated An easy and affordable solution is now available at Laservision. Today’s modern lifestyle environment puts a high strain on our eyes which can often cause a condition called MGD - Meibomian Glands Dysfunction or Dry Eye Syndrome (DES). Meibomian glands are located inside your bottom eye-lids and are responsible for creating a tear film to keep your eyes correctly moisturised. Air pollution, artificial lighting, high use of smart phones and computers, air-conditioning, driving motor vehicles and wearing contact lenses along with many other age-related and environmental factors can all affect the function of these glands and significantly increase the risk of Dry Eye Syndrome (DES). DES results in irritable, itchy, tired, heavy eyes that may go blurry and even start to water, affecting the tasks of daily life. The use of lubricant ‘tear’ drops may help the symptoms of DES, but relief is short term and they do not address the long term problem. We are here to help with E-Eye IRPL Our new non-invasive treatment using IRPL (Intense Regulated Pulsed Light) technology is now available at our Merivale, Christchurch Clinic. Over a short series of four simple treatment sessions, Regulated Pulsed Light is used to stimulate the creation of neurotransmitters by the nerve connected to the Meibomian Glands, helping to restore normal function and relieving the eyes from dryness. The process is quick, gentle and can offer long-lasting relief to dry eye sufferers.
