Dry eye syndrome occurs as a result of insufficient tear production, which leads to an inadequate lubrication of the eye necessary to maintain a healthy eye surface. The condition may present with chronic symptoms such as irritation and discomfort, dryness, and sensitivity to light. Other factors which can induce the condition include age, environmental conditions, certain medications and long-term use of contact lenses. Advanced dry eye syndrome can damage the surface layer of the eye with the potential to impair vision. The Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide and may have a relevant influence on their daily life. For a long time there have been no effective therapies to treat it with stable and durable effects.  A wide variety of lubricating eye drops and ointments are available to sufferers of dry eye. Hope Island Optical employs the latest diagnostic equipment and treatment available, including IPL and Rexon-eye. Your optometrist will advise you on the appropriate management of dry eyes.


QMR Treatement for Dry Eye

Rexon-Eye® is a non-invasive device that provides durable treatment for all forms of dry eye syndromes. It works by applying low-power high-frequency electric fields, capable of stimulating the metabolism and natural regeneration of cells. The treatment itself is comfortable, pleasant and relaxing.
Rexon-Eye® treats the cause of the dry eye disease delivering long-term results. The instrument is successfully applied and highly appreciated worldwide by ophthalmologists and optometrists who treat dry eye patients at their practices, dry-eye centers or hospitals. 

The treatment addresses all types of the dry eye syndromes, both evaporative as well as aqueous deficient, as evidenced by published studies in several subjective and objective measurements.

The principle of operation of Rexon-Eye is QMR® Technology which delivers weak alternate electric current patterns at frequencies (spectrum of frequencies ranging from 4 MHz to 64 MHz) that are in resonance with tissue molecular bindings.

IPL Treatment for Dry Eye

E-Eye, is the market-leading technology for the treatment of dry eye dysfunction. It uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy to restore normal meibomian gland function and is effective in 80 per cent of people with dry eye / meibomian gland dysfunction and blepharitis.

The dry eye treatment with E-Eye only takes a few minutes, sitting in a comfortably chair. The eyes from the patient are covered by protective eyecups. Hydrogel is applied to the lower eyelid. A series of light pulses is performed around the lower eye, gentle and non-invasive. The series is repeated in the same way for both eyes. The treatment restores the normal activity of the Meibomian gland, with very rapid improvement for the patient from the very first session. The effect of first two treatments lasts a few days up to 2 to 3 weeks.

The long-lasting effect is expected for minimum 6 months up to 3 years. The E-Eye protocol comprises three to four sessions. It is recommended to repeat one application once symptoms are coming back.
