Radiofrequency (RF) has been used in aesthetic treatments for many years. It has also provided excellent results for dry eye patients.
Radiofrequency treatment applies heat to the eyelid area, warming the meibomian glands to liquefy any clogged oil inside them. After the treatment, your optometrist may manually express the meibomian glands, to release any additional oil trapped inside.
The oil layer of your tear film is essential for keeping moisture from evaporating too quickly. When your tears are not in contact with your ocular surface long enough, dry eye can result.
To see if Radiofrequency treatment might help your dry eye, book your appointment today.
During a thorough consultation with an optometrist, we will answer any questions you may have about radiofrequency treatment and provide you with some instructions about how to prepare.
To prepare for your treatment, you should:
We find that most patients achieve results after the first treatment, but for best results, we recommend 3 to 4. The number of treatments you need will be determined by your unique situation. Your optometrist will discuss potential outcomes and expectations with you during your consultation.
Most patients can resume normal activity immediately following treatment. While there may be some redness post-treatment, it generally subsides quickly.
We will discuss any risks with you during your appointment.
The first step to dry eye relief is a comprehensive eye examination. Book yours today!
