Dry eye is a progressive condition and should be closely monitored. There may be minimal symptoms in the early stages but, if left untreated, dry eye syndrome becomes harder to manage. Colorado Eye Gallery is proud to offer advanced dry eye assessments and treatments for our patients.
Schedule an appointment to have your dry eyes evaluated and learn how you can find relief.
Zocular Eyelid System Treatment (ZEST)
Our eyelids can accumulate a biofilm or “plaque,” even with regular at-home eyelid cleansing. ZEST® is a clinically effective in-office procedure performed by your eye doctor to remove the residue and debris from your eyelid. ZEST is used to address a wide range of previously challenging conditions:
• dry eyes
• styes (chalazia)
One of the key advantages of ZEST is its gentleness, using no anesthetic or tea tree oil oil that can burn your eyes. It utilizes an activated okra complex, and feels like a soothing spa treatment for your eyes.
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Developed by NASA, LLLT has proven to be effective at treating dry eye disease. LLLT uses specially designed LED lights to gently warm up the eyelids, causing the meibomian glands to unclog and release oils.
• Safe, non-invasive procedure
• 15 minutes per session
• No recovery time needed
• No side effects or discomfort
• Safe for adults and children
It’s quick and painless! Simply lay back with the Equinox mask on and relax as the warm light clears your glands. LLLT may also help decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles, acne and rosacea.
