AFT Laser Treatment
AFT is the next generation of intense pulsed light (IPL) used to target and clear the vascular lesions—malformed blood vessels—that are responsible for rosacea. Half of people with rosacea experience ocular symptoms, and these ocular symptoms can show up even before any facial symptoms appear. Unfortunately, the lesions that cause rosacea will not go away without proper treatment. They do, however, respond well to laser and light-based therapy, including AFT.
AFT works by sending light energy to the blood vessels. When the blood vessels absorb this energy, they shrink and collapse. The average patient requires 4-6 AFT treatments, which we schedule 3-6 weeks apart.
BlephEX® is a new, in-office procedure that allows your doctor to take an active role in treating dry eye and blepharitis. BlephEx® removes excess bacteria, biofilm, and bacterial toxins, the main causes of inflammatory dry eye and lid disease. With regular treatments, patients finally enjoy a life free from the chronic and irritating symptoms associated with dry eye and blepharitis. Learn more about BlephEx or watch this short video showing how BlephEx works.
LipiFlow is a new treatment for dry eye caused by tears evaporating too fast. This type of dry eye is called evaporative dry eye and is caused by blockage in the eyelids’ oil-producing glands, or Meibomian glands. LipiFlow is a 12-minute procedure done in your doctor’s office. Learn more about how Lipiflow treatment could relieve your dry eye.
We are pleased to announce that TrueTear® is now available at Brenart Eye Clinic. TrueTear® is a non-invasive treatment option for Dry Eye that works by stimulating the body to produce natural tears. This technology is the first of its kind in eye care and offers patients a drug-free and drop-free option for their Dry Eye symptoms. By using state-of-the-art neurostimulation technology, the tip of the device emits tiny pulses of energy to stimulate a nerve inside the nasal cavity, and the tear glands respond by temporarily making more of your own natural tears (that include proteins and lipids). Ask one of our Optometrists about TrueTear® at your next appointment and learn more about why this could be the right option for you!
