What You Should Know
Are you searching for a dry eye treatment that can provide long-lasting relief? If so, you may want to consider TempSure from Kubo Optometry. Our Sacramento, CA, optometry practice proudly provides this advanced treatment option to our patients.
TempSure is a new, FDA-cleared technology that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the health of your eyes. This treatment can help increase tear production, relieving dry eye symptoms.
How Does TempSure Work?
The oil glands in your eyelids play a vital role in tear production. However, these glands become blocked over time due to various factors, including age, environmental conditions, and medication. When blocked, the glands cannot produce the tears your eyes need to stay healthy and comfortable.
You'll start experiencing symptoms such as dryness, itchiness, redness, and even pain.
If the problem is not resolved, it can lead to severe conditions, such as atrophy, ocular surface disease, and lid laxity. Eventually, it can impact your vision and make it difficult to see.
TempSure uses radiofrequency energy to unblock the glands and help them function properly. In addition, the heat from the radiofrequency energy helps loosen the blockage, allowing the glands to produce tears again. No surgery is needed, and the entire process is non-invasive.
What Are the Benefits of TempSure for Eye Care?
This solution is used as a skin-tightening treatment for other body parts, but its benefits are universal. TempSure may be the perfect solution if you suffer from dry eye. TempSure provides several benefits, including:
- Relief from dry eye symptoms
- Increased tear production
- Improved gland function
- No surgery required
- Non-invasive procedure
TempSure Eye Care: What You Should Expect
When you visit an optometrist for a TempSure treatment, they will clean your eyes and apply a special gel to the surface. This gel helps conduct the radiofrequency energy and protects your eyes from overheating. The optometrist will then place the TempSure wand on your eyelids and move it back and forth over the surface of your eyes.
You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment, but it is generally well tolerated by patients. The process takes less than 30 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.
Most patients see a noticeable improvement in their dry eye symptoms after one treatment. However, for some patients with more severe cases of dry eye, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
