Dry eye is a common condition characterized by itching, redness, and pain due to insufficient lubrication. If the tear ducts do not produce sufficient tears, or if the tears themselves are chemically imbalanced, the eyes can become dry and irritated. In order to lubricate the eyes effectively, natural tears require a particular chemical balance.

Dry eye has many symptoms, including:

  • Red
  • Burning
  • Gritty
  • Irritated Eyes
  • Foreign Body Sensation
  • Blurry Vision
  • And More!

If you are experiencing any of these dry eye symptoms, you know how bothersome and annoying they can be. Dry eye is a chronic and progressive condition also known as Ocular Surface disease. Ocular surface disease is common but misdiagnosed. It affects about 50 million Americans, and it is continuing to rise.

TEMPSURE ENVI

TempSure Envi is a radio frequency procedure that treats ocular surface disease by stimulating clogged tear glands. The oil-producing tear glands reside along the upper and lower eyelids. These glands become blocked over time and lose their ability to produce the rich oil layer of the tear film. When this happens, the eyes start to feel dry, irritated, burning, reduced comfort with contacts, and redness, especially upon waking. Over time these plugged glands can lead to the death of the glands, lid laxity, and ocular surface disease. As this condition worsens, it can impact the ability to see clearly.

This non-invasive treatment utilized radio frequency technology to safely and effectively treat dry eyes and dermatochalasis (droopy eyelids) for a smoother, healthier-looking appearance. Best of all, there is no surgery or downtime.
