How Does Radiofrequency Treat Dry Eye Syndrome?

Radiofrequency (RF) treatment is a safe, modern, in-office procedure for treating dry eyes. At Dr. Bishop & Associates, we offer the Forma-I device for RF treatments.

RF treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently increase the skin temperature around your eyes, which helps open up clogged meibomian glands and improve oil flow. This, in turn, helps enhance tear film quality and alleviate dry eye symptoms. 

RF treatments with the Forma-I device are noninvasive procedures that can help you get relief from dry eyes. Contact us to get started and schedule your appointment today.

Relieve Dry Eyes with Forma-I

Forma-I radiofrequency is a non-surgical procedure that uses bi-polar radio frequency technology to target wrinkles like crow’s feet and simultaneously treat dry eyes. 

Treatments with Forma-I are designed to be like a warm massage for your eyes, enhancing blood circulation in the area. The treatment uses radiofrequency technology that can gently heat your meibomian glands to liquefy their oil and improve their function. As a result, Forma-I treatments can enhance your tear quality and reduce dry eye symptoms.

Benefits of Radiofrequency 

Our team will discuss what you can expect during your radiofrequency treatment and be with you every step of the way. You can say goodbye to dry, irritated eyes and hello to refreshed and rejuvenated vision with Forma-I.

Some of the benefits of radiofrequency treatment for dry eye can include: 

  • Providing safe and effective relief for dry eyes
  • Opening up clogged meibomian glands and improving oil flow
  • Enhancing tear film quality for better eye comfort
  • Alleviating dry eye symptoms caused by meibomian gland dysfunction
  • Improving blood circulation near the eyes for optimal eye health
  • Targeting wrinkles like crow’s feet while also treating dry eye

How Many Sessions Do You Need? 

Treatment times and frequency can vary and are usually recommended based on what can provide lasting relief. Our team will discuss the number of sessions you need based on your personal needs. 

Most patients don’t experience side effects, and any skin reactions usually resolve within a few hours of treatment. The best part about Forma-I RF treatments is there is typically no downtime and you can get back to your daily routine right away.
