Eyetek has been appointed the official Australian distributor and representative of ESW Vision, best known for E-Eye – the first intense pulsed laser (IPL) device to incorporate patented intense regulated pulsed light (IRPL) technology dedicated to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
A second generation IPL, the brand’s IRPL technology stimulates the meibomian glands to restore them to their normal function.
“IRPL has a regulated function that allows for a consistent and homogeneous flash, with a perfectly calibrated range of pulses and frequencies, about 10 times the length of a generic IPL flash (up to 40ms per single flash),” says Jeremy Rebion, Eyetek Managing Director.
Eyetek also distributes two new instruments from ESW Vision; the Tearstim and the Tearcheck.
Tearstim offers the same technology, outcomes and treatment benefits as the traditional IPL device, however has a smaller footprint, is more userfriendly, and is faster to treat.
“Tearstim’s very specific interface (means) everyone can use it easily without having to change filters and power settings – everything is calibrated to deliver optimal results while being 100% safe for all patients,” Mr Rebion said.
Tearcheck is a touch-based educational and diagnostic tool to screen and diagnose dry eye symptoms before the patient enters the consult room, thus increasing practice efficiencies.
Eyetek offers a comprehensive range of products for dry eye clinics and has introduced a technology rental program to make establishing or building a clinic affordable.
