SUPERIOR TREATMENTS

Latest Technology

Dr. Munson uses the latest technology to not only get a view of your eyes, but to watch the cellular changes in the eye and examine the neural pathways from the eye to the brain. The ocular surface is a delicate structure and is vulnerable to potential environmental, hormonal, medicinal, and performance insults by the nature of its function and anatomic location. Disruption of the physiological integrity may or may not produce symptoms. Therefore, investigation of the component parts of the ocular surface must be performed.

At Fort Collins Family Eye Care, we are proud to bring the latest dry eye technology and treatments to our patients.

BlephEx®

BlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eye care professional. A revolutionary new patented BlephEx® hand piece is used to very precisely and carefully spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris, and exfoliating your eyelids. The patented micro-sponge is disposable and for optimal cleaning and exfoliating, a fresh clean one is used for each individual eyelid. The eyes are rinsed well afterwards. The procedure lasts 6-8 minutes. Most patients report simply a tickling sensation. A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort. After the procedure, the patient is given instructions on how to maintain their clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. Since home treatments are only semi-effective, the procedure is typically repeated at 4-6 month intervals.

LashCam®

LashCam® by BlephEx® allows Dr. Munson to clearly see the biofilm buildup on your eyelashes and eyelids to assess the degree of inflammation and blepharitis you’re experiencing. These photos give her valuable information to build your personalized treatment plan, providing preventative and early intervention for blepharitis.

LipiView® II

LipiView® II Ocular Surface Interferometer with Dynamic Meibomian Imaging™ (DMI) measures lipid layer thickness (LLT) with nanometer accuracy, captures blink dynamics, and images meibomian gland structure. The LipiView II Interferometer features patented technology that provides a sophisticated assessment of factors that contribute to dry eye. Compelling visuals and video captures provide a unique opportunity to educate patients about their personal ocular health.

LipiFlow®

LipiFlow® is a therapeutic treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction. By combining heat with a therapeutic pulsation to the eyelids, LipiFlow® removes blockages and helps your meibomian glands properly function and produce needed oils. The result? Healthy tear film and dry eye relief.

Neurolens®

Neurolens® uses their SightSync® device to measure any eye misalignment that may be causing chronic headaches, eye strain, dry eyes, or even neck stiffness. With this information,  your very own Custom Compensation Curve is produced to relieve the symptoms of digital vision syndrome and Trigeminal dysphoria.

Pellevé

Our Pellevé technology allows us to treat Dry Eye Disease by stimulating the oil producing glands for better quality tear production. Using radio frequency technology to heat the glands, tears become more balanced to increase moisture and comfort.

TearLab Osmolarity Testing

Some types of dry eye disease occur when your eyes do not produce enough tears or poor-quality tears are produced. It is essential to gather a sample of tears from each eye using the TearLab device to measure osmolarity (the saltiness of your tears). As osmolarity in your tears increases, ocular surface cells become damaged. Once a diagnosis is made, the earliest form of preventative care will be discussed with Dr. Munson and the Wellness team. Additional inflammatory markers specific to systemic diseases and allergy testing will be analyzed and measured with this technology.

HD Analyzer™

Our HD Analyzer™ allows Dr. Munson to objectively determine whether your tear film or lens are contributing to a loss of vision quality. This can help determine if the best treatment option for you right now is Lasik, cataract surgery, or dry eye care.
