E-Eye Device

E>Eye

E>Eye is a device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses.

The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands in order for them to return their normal function.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The « flashed » areas (suborbital and zygomatic region) are the areas where the parasympathetic nerve passes.

It has been proved in several neurological studies that the emission on a nerve of infrared as a train of pulse leads to the creation of a micro gradient of temperature between the inner and the outer layer of the myelin sheath.

This micro gradient of temperature triggers the liberation of neurotransmitters.
Anatomically, the parasympathetic nerve is connected to the Meibomian gland by some of its branches.
The neurotransmitters released will then be able to interact with the Meibomian gland, stimulating the secretion and the contraction of the gland.

The treatment effects is cumulative and lasts

  • 1 week after the 1st session
  • 2 to 3 weeks after the 2nd session
  • 6 months to 2 years after 3 to 4 sessions

SIMPLE AND FAST

The session only takes a few minutes.

Patients are comfortably seated on a treatment chair, preferably tilted. The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the metal eyewear protection on the patient’s head to protect their eyes from the light. Then, they apply an hydrogel on the skin to protect it.

A series of 5 flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power. The same process is then repeated under the lower eyelid of the other eye.

INDICATIONS

E-Eye is a device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses.

The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands in order for them to return their normal function.

TREATMENT PROTOCOL

The session only take a few minutes. Patients are comfortably seated on a treatment chair, preferably tilted. The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the metal eyewear protection on the patients head to protect their eyes from the light. They then apply a hydrogel on the skin to protect it.

A series of 4 flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power.

The same process is then repeated under the lower eyelid of the other eye.

POST TREATMENT

The stimulation leads to the Meibomian glands returning to their normal function in a very short time (a couple hours) following the treatment. This improvement will last for about a week after the initial treatment two to three weeks following the second treatment, then from a couple months onward. The effect is cumulative.

E>EYE TECHNOLOGY

technology_1

The E>Eye is the fruit of years of research from E-Swin, the world leader in Medical Grade IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology.

Primarily used in the cosmetic industry for the treatment of excessive hair growth, skin photo rejuvenation, pigmentation, vascular treatments and acne, the IPL technology is now introduced to the optometry industry for the treatment of Meibomian blepharitis.

The E>Eye is a device that generates a polychromatic-pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses.

The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate and unblock the Meibomian glands in order for them to return their normal functions.

The E>Eye, – fully developed and manufactured in France under an ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 manufacturing process – benefits from an E-Swin patented technology of electronically controlled flashes.

The E>Eye is easy to use, fast and tailor-made for optometrists and ophthalmologists:

  • Starts in a few seconds : No pre-heating required.
  • Compact : Fits in any practice space.
  • Affordable: doesn’t require maintenance, low running costs.
  • Medically certified
  • Supported by one clinical study in New Zealand and one in France (more information available on request)

E>EYE IPL IN YOUR OPTOMETRY PRACTICE

“With more than 4 million people in Australia (approx.. 20% of the population) suffering from dry eyes and 20% of that figure – or more than 800,000 individuals – suffering from chronic dry eyes, it is a problem that needs attention.” (Source: MiVision – August 2013) If you agree with that, so do we!

Optometrists have been selling eye drops for years to treat the disease but thanks to the E>Eye they will now be able to treat the symptoms rather than the disease!

With low running costs, the E>Eye IPL treatment is also a great source of revenue for optometrists and still a very affordable treatment for dry eye sufferers.

An E>Eye treatment doesn’t take more than 3 minutes (4 flashes under each eyelids) and doesn’t cause any discomfort to the patient. Results are immediate and cumulative. For optimum results, treatments will be performed on Day 1, Day 10 and Day 30.

PREVENTION

The E>Eye is not only a great medical device for treating people suffering from Meibomian gland dysfunction but it is also a great tool for prevention.

“Optometry industry has to change to provide better healthcare to the public like dentistry industry changed years ago. Our role as optometrists should be to prevent people from getting eyes related issues such as dry eyes. Unfortunately until today, we didn’t have any efficient prevention tools to help dry eyes sufferers. The E>Eye benefits for optometrists is obvious, by insuring the Meibomian glands to come back to their normal functions, we are minimising the risks of deteriorating the eye surface. Once the cornea is damaged, it is too late, that’s why us as optometrists should inform the public and start prevention when we still have the time because once it is too late, there is nothing you can do anymore.” Jim Kokkinakis from the Eye Practice in Sydney.

Treating each of your customers once a year with an E>Eye treatment will decrease the risk of getting dry eyes and complications associated with it. Optometrists will inform elderly people subject to dry eye issues due to Meiboman gland dysfunction.

THE TREATMENT

  • Each session only takes 3 to 5 minutes.
  • The skin is cleaned from any make-up or other cosmetics.
  • The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the goggles on the patients’ eyes to protect them from the intense light generated by the device.
  • A conductive clear gel is applied on the skin for the skin protection and optimum results.
  • A series of 4 flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power.
  • Results are immediate and cumulative.

Following an E>Eye treatment, we also recommend to express the Meibomian glands for optimum results.

Consumables available (included in the E>Eye pack):

  • Optical cartridge of 500 flashes
  • Conductive gel (1 L bottle)
  • Cleaning spray (for optical parts)
  • Protective glasses
  • Patches (to cover potential moles under the eyelid)
