Envision by InMode for Dry Eye Disease

Envision is a technology that uses radiofrequency (Forma-I) and IPL (Lumecca IPL) to help clear and regenerate the meibomian glands found in the eyelids.

With this treatment, most patients will be able to resolve their dry eye symptoms and will no longer need drops, ointments or prescription medications. Envision can also target uneven skin tone, rosacea and unwanted sun spots.

Forma-I is  the latest medical technology designed to address the symptoms of dry eye disease due to Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). This cutting-edge device is used in the periorbital area and eyelids to relieve inflammation of meibomian glands and eye irritation.

Lumecca IPL therapy is a light treatment that can help alleviate dry eye symptoms by treating MGD. The treatment uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to heat the meibomian glands, which helps liquefy the glands’ oil and improve their function. This, in turn, helps improve the tears’ quality and reduce dry eye symptoms.

The innovative thermal technology delivers targeted bipolar radiofrequency energy to small, delicate ocular areas. Treatments are quick and easy and performed safely in-office. Forma-I is a medical solution that will benefit millions of dry eye disease sufferers, aiding our commitment to helping patients improve their quality of life.

Treatments are quick and easy and performed safely in-office. Forma-I delivers an efficacious, non-drug alternative to improve meibomian gland function and the symptoms of dry eye that will benefit millions of dry eye disease sufferers, aiding our commitment to helping patients improve their quality of life.

In addition to treating MGD, Lumecca IPL therapy can also address other skin concerns. The treatment can help reduce the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and other pigmentation issues. It can also stimulate collagen production, improving the skin’s overall texture and tone. Lumecca IPL therapy can relieve those who have exhausted conventional treatments and enhance the dry eye practice of eye care professionals.

What is Dry Eye?

​​Dry eye is a common condition where the eyes do not produce enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. As we blink, a film of tears forms over the eye; this keeps the eye’s surface smooth and clear. Tears are necessary to maintain the eye’s front surface’s health and provide clear vision.

Symptoms of dry eye:

General symptoms can be moderate to severe and include the following:

  • Sporadic watery eyes
  • Intermittent blurry vision that clears with blinking
  • Contact lens discomfort
  • Light sensitivity in indoor lighting or moderate settings

These symptoms can progress to:

  • Chronic red, burning, and itchy eyes
  • Severe pain and discomfort
  • Fluctuating vision
  • The feeling of something foreign within the eye

When left untreated, the condition can lead to extreme outcomes, such as scarring of the meibomian glands, cornea, and surrounding tissue.

What is meibomian gland dysfunction (mgd)?

MGD occurs when the meibomian glands become blocked or dysfunctional, decreasing the quantity or quality of the produced meibum. Meibum is an oily substance that helps to lubricate the eyes and prevent tear evaporation. The tear film can become unstable when meibum is insufficient or poor quality, leading to dry eye symptoms.

Several factors can contribute to the development of MGD, including:

  • Age
  • Hormonal changes
  • Certain medications
  • Environmental factors such as air pollution and low humidity
  • Certain medical conditions, such as rosacea and blepharitis

The symptoms of MGD can vary depending on the severity of the condition but commonly include the following:

  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Redness of the eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • The feeling of something in the eye
