Here at Richmond University Vision Care, our doctors offer Forma-I radiofrequency (RF) technology to treat dry eye disease. RF is effective in liquefying clogged oil via bulk heat to the periorbital tissue, paired with a gentle massage to help improve the function of the meibomian glands.
Is Forma-I RF Safe?
Forma-I is the only radiofrequency treatment approved by Health Canada indicated to help improve dry eye disease secondary to meibomian gland dysfunction. It delivers targeted bipolar radiofrequency energy to small, delicate ocular areas. Treatments are quick and easy and performed safely in-office with zero downtime. Patients may experience skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction as part of the treatment as RF technology helps to stimulate collagen production.
