Dry Eyes: What Are They & Why Do They Happen?
Dry eye disease, also known as dry eye, is a common problem for many patients. It occurs when your tears can’t adequately hydrate your eyes, leading to irritation and inflammation.
Many factors can affect dry eye development. The causes of this condition are typically not producing enough tears or having poor quality tears, which results in faster evaporation.
Issues with your tears happen because of problems with your tear film. Your tear film has 3 layers (mucus, water, and oil) that work together to keep your eyes healthy and protected. Each layer has a different purpose, keeping tears on your eye, hydrating and protecting the eye, and preventing your tears from evaporating too quickly.
When your tear film has problems, it can lead to several uncomfortable symptoms, such as:
- A stinging, burning, scratching sensation
- Blurry vision
- Eye fatigue
- Eye redness
- Foreign object sensation
- Light sensitivity
- Stringy mucus in or around the eyes
- Watery eyes

HOW DOES IT WORK?
TempSure Envi uses electromagnetic energy to generate controlled heat, which helps stimulate collagen and elastin, proteins our cells need to control inflammation and build new skin cells.
For dry eye treatment, it works by targeting the oil and tear glands around your eyes. As your skin’s temperature increases, the heat helps melt oils clogged in the glands to improve tear quality. It can also reduce the inflammation contributing to meibomian gland dysfunction.
For skin tightening, the RF energy can reach the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate new cell production. Collagen and elastin give your skin cells strength and flexibility so your skin can regain a firmer, smoother texture.
WHY ARE QUALITY TEARS IMPORTANT?
Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Tears are made up of 3 layers: oil, water, and mucus. Each component protects and nourishes the front surface of the eye. A smooth oil layer helps prevent evaporation of the water layer, while the mucin layer spreads the tears evenly over the surface of the eye. If the tears evaporate too quickly or do not spread evenly over the cornea due to deficiencies with any of the 3 tear layers, dry eye symptoms can develop.
WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS CAN RADIOFREQUENCY TREAT?
TempSure radiofrequency can be used on the face and body, including the neck, arms, and hands. Radiofrequency is an FDA-approved skin treatment that’s safe with generally mild side effects. The main benefit is rejuvenating the look of youthful skin without surgery or downtime.
- Improve overall skin texture, tone, & firmness
- Minimize the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Smooth stretch marks and sagging or crepey skin
- Reduce signs of sun damage

Prescription Eye Drops
Prescription eye drops can offer more effective treatment for chronic dry eyes than over-the-counter eye drops. These eye drops can be ideal for patients who struggle to produce enough tears to keep their eyes hydrated.
The active ingredient in prescription eye drops can help relieve inflammation in your eyes and tear ducts. Treating this inflammation improves your eye’s ability to produce tears, leading to less irritation and more comfort.
