Protect your sight with treatments at Asia Retina Eye Surgery Center
Transform your vision with treatments at Center for Retinal Eye Surgery in Asia that treat the symptoms of digital eye strain.
With the trend of continuing to work from home (and spending longer hours in front of the screen), it is inevitable that more and more people now suffer from computer vision syndrome, also known as digital eye strain. . Symptoms range from the most obvious, such as eye strain, dry or red eyes, itching and darkening of the eyelids, to the less obvious.
According to Dr Claudine Pang, ophthalmologist and founder of the Asia Retina Eye Surgery Center, prolonged use of digital devices can lead to lethargy, exhaustion, a feeling of heaviness and even difficulty concentrating.
For Dr Pang, our cover girl of March and winner of the Prestige 40 under 40 award last year, “the eyes are the real windows to the soul”. They provide insight into a person’s health, as illness or fatigue is often manifested in the appearance of their eyes. Doctor’s new book, Eyecare for All, offers readers digestible information on how to best respond to common eye problems and problems. She cautions, however, that while preventative measures can be taken, the solution involves regular eye checks and treatments.
At the Asia Retina Eye Surgery Center, treatments tackle symptoms of digital eye strain, improve vision, and improve eye well-being using technologically advanced, FDA-approved machines such as those listed in the next section.
Tixel dry eye treatment
This therapy uses thermomechanical ablation (TMA) technology to rejuvenate tired or dry eyes. Non-laser heat treatment transfers heat energy to the skin around the eyes quickly and safely to improve tear production and improve tear film permanently, unlike eye drops which only offer relief temporary.
A non-invasive solution, Tixel Dry Eye Treatment takes less than 10 minutes and causes only mild discomfort with little to no downtime. Most patients notice significant improvement right after the first session, although two to three sessions may be needed for best results. For people with severe drought, additional sessions are recommended, at intervals of two to three weeks.
Used with personalized settings and paired with topical serums, the treatment can also provide aesthetic benefits, such as a subtle eyelid lift and reduction in periorbital darkening, fine lines and wrinkles.
MyMask low intensity light therapy
Dry eyes are commonly caused by dysfunction of the meibomian glands in our eyelids. Low-level light therapy (LLLT) uses photobiomodulation of longer wavelength red LED light to stimulate the meibomian glands on the upper and lower eyelids. This increases the production of meibum and improves the quality of tears to reduce the discomfort of itchy and dry eyes.
Non-invasive, it is applied as a mask on the face for 20 minutes, without downtime and without side effects. Two sessions a week apart help to treat recurrent eyelid infections or styes.
Blephex eyelid exfoliation therapy
Blephex treatment is a painless procedure that uses microblepharoexfoliation to exfoliate the edges of the eyelids and eyelashes. This removes excess bacteria and toxins, which can trigger eyelid infections such as blepharitis and cause various symptoms. The procedure lasts 10 to 15 minutes for both eyes and is useful for treating all kinds of scabs, discharge, redness, and removal of makeup residue from the eyelids. It can be repeated monthly to maintain good eyelid hygiene.
Optomap ultra-wide field retinal imaging
Ultra-wide retinal imaging is an essential screening tool for the early detection of silent eye conditions in the inner eye, such as retinal tears, as well as general health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. It allows the diagnosis of an internal ocular pathology which may first appear in the peripheral retina and may go unnoticed using traditional examination techniques and equipment. This non-contact eye imaging technology offers in-depth screening since 80% or 200 degrees of the retina can be seen in a single capture.
Optical Coherence SpectralisTomography
The OCT scanning laser provides information about the condition of the retinal layers through high-speed, high-resolution angiography, which uses light waves to take cross-sectional photos of your retina. This microscopic visualization of the layers of the macula and retinal circulation is essential for detecting the first signs of glaucoma, macular degeneration, vitreous and retinal disorders – all conditions that may present with little or no symptoms in the early stages. .
