TOP-OF-THE-LINE EQUIPMENT

Advanced Technology & Machinery

Our technology was selected for its superior performance and exceptional results. At Brevard Eye Center, we pride ourselves in using the best equipment available to get you the results you're looking for.

Lipiflow Activator

The Activator

Ocular surface interferometer

Ocular Surface Interferometer

Thermal pulsation system

Thermal Pulsation System

The Activator

The Activators deliver Vectored Thermal Pulse to the inner part of your eyelid and uses gentle adaptive pressure on the outer portions of the lid to encourage production of lipids. These devices are built for a single usage making them sterile and safe. The Activators fit comfortable onto the eye, making the 12-minute procedure pain-free for the patient.

Why We Use The Activator

  • Protective – It shields the structures of your eye from damage during the procedure.
  • Comfortable – You will experience minimal to no discomfort when being treated using the LipiFlow Activators.

Ocular
Surface Interferometer

The Ocular Surface Interferometer uses digital imaging technology to take images that show the thickness of the lipid layer. Dr. Tres can then use this to determine if you’re suffering from dry eye. It can be used during a non-invasive procedure that takes five minutes to complete. Evaluation of lipids takes place both during and after the procedure to determine the best treatment option for you. Measurements include blink dynamics, meibomian gland structure, and lipid layer thickness.

Why We Use the Ocular Surface Interferometer

  • Accuracy –Measures thickness with nanometer accuracy.
  • Reporting –Gives us a better visual and improved ability to diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan.

Thermal Pulsation System

The Thermal Pulsation System is the computer behind the treatment delivered to The Activators. The system in its entirety works together to deliver heat and pressure to the meibomian glands. The computer-controlled treatment is monitored with multiple sensors to give a more accurate treatment. This means you are more likely to see the results you desired take effect.

  • Accuracy –Sensors monitor the entire treatment process and can adjust the treatment accordingly.
  • Proven Results –Studies have shown an increase in lipid products with no significant regression in patients who receive the LipiFlow treatment for dry eyes..
