Say Goodbye to Dry Eye with Inmode Forma Radiofrequency
There are many ways to treat dry eye and Inmode Forma is one of the most effective. It’s a cutting-edge technology that uses radiofrequencies to unblock meibomian glands which cause dry eye syndrome, leading to dryness, grittiness, redness, blurry vision and sometimes light sensitivity.
Inmode Forma stimulates the meibomian glands by allowing the oil that lubcricates the tearfilm to be released, resulting in high quality tears. It’s non-invasive, FDA-approved, and takes just 10 minutes to complete. A patient may need 4 to 8 sessions in total to get the full benefit of this treatment, but most people experience positive changes after the first or second session.
Inmode Forma is ideal for people all ages and is recommended if you’ve tried other methods to treat your dry eye. Book a consultation with Kamloops Family Vision Clinic in Kamloops to get started with Inmode Forma Radiofrequency today!
What is Dry Eye Syndrome?
Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) happens when the eyes don’t produce enough tears or produce low-quality tears. This results in the eyes not having enough moisture, which irritates the eyes. Symptoms include dryness, itchiness, grittiness in the eyes, redness, light sensitivity and blurred vision. The most common cause of dry eye is meibomian gland dysfunction.
Dry Eye and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
In people with meibomian gland dysfunction, the tiny eyelid glands that secrete nourishing oils into the tear film become clogged. Blockages can be caused by eye makeup, debris, mite infestations, and inflammation of the eyelid. This reduces the quality of tears, leading to rapid tear evaporation and dry eye syndrome.
When the meibomian glands are blocked, an individual may also experience a burning sensation in the eyes, styes, crusty discharge, and blurred vision.
How Inmode Forma Radiofrequency Treats Dry Eye
Inmode Forma Radiofrequency stimulates the meibomian glands to improve the production of tears. It’s a non-invasive and FDA-approved procedure that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
During the treatment, the Inmode machine is applied to the areas around the eyes while the patient sits comfortably. The heat created by the machine stimulates the meibomian glands, which leads to the softening of oils that have clogged up the glands. This also encourages the secretion of new oils and improves meibomian gland health.
Our Treatment Plan
The treatment is painless (you’ll likely only feel a tingling sensation or slight warmth) and has no downtime, meaning you’ll be able to get back to your usual routine as soon as the treatment ends. Generally speaking, 4-8 sessions are needed, depending on the extent of an individual’s dry eye symptoms. Many patients report noticeable changes after the first or second session.
An added benefit is that Inmode is appropriate for people of all ages and can be an alternative treatment for dry eye sufferers who've unsuccessfully tried other treatments and have not found relief.
InMode uses technology to treat dry eye by stimulating tear production and unblocking meibomian glands.
