ThermoFlo treatment

Fresh and clear eyes

Do you suffer from dry eyes? Are your eyes constantly running? Dry, itchy and running eyes now have their own treatment. Sol Eyes is a pioneer in this field!

MiBoFlo ThermoFlo is a new therapeutic device for treating dry eyes. It uses a thermoelectric heat pump designed to provide a consistent temperature of 42°C to the external eyelid surface. The goal of the treatment is to liquefy the obstructed contents of the meibomian glands, and therefore cures the symptomes of dry eyes.

The dual, pure silver eye pad, which allows treatment of both the upper and the lower eyelids at the same time, transfers heat via applied ultrasound gel and directs it deep into the meibomian glands. Gentle, relaxing massage treatments give patients the immediate relief; some even describe the feeling as ethereal.

ThermoFlo, you could say in a playful way, is a Spa treatment for the eyes.

The surface of the eye is moisturized by tear fluid that consist of water, proteins and grease. The grease layer is the primal component for keeping the eye moist, and the most common reason for eye symptoms. The grease is secreted in the surface of the eye by meibomian glands, and any interference in their action usually causes defects in lubrication of the surface of the eye. When not enough grease is formed, the eyes feel itchy, as if there was sand in them and redness can occur. The eyes usually try to fix these symptoms by increasing transpiration of water containing tears, but that is not enough for moisturizing, since there is not enough grease and it leads to dry, running eyes.

Moisturizing drops ease the symptoms, but an even better way is to rehabilitate the function of the eyelids with ThermoFlo treatment that activates the meibomian glands to produce enough grease to normalise eye moisture levels.
