The eyeXpress™ Eye Hydration System is a hands-free device developed for in-office therapy to relieve symptoms of dry eye while assisting eye hydration. The unique goggle system applies continuous heat to the upper and lower eyelid at the same time.
The eyeXpress® increases the tear film and aids in the eye hydrating itself. It provides a regulated temperature and softens the meibum (the oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film). This aids in the unclogging of the meibomian glands (the oil glands of the eyelids) during the expression treatment performed by the doctor.
"Dr. Lam is very knowledgeable about dry eyes. She is committed to giving the best treatment possible in the area and it has made a huge difference to the quality of my life. Dr. Lam is very professional and caring doctor. I know she wants to do the best by her patients.
I'm currently getting ready to try contacts again and I know that the process will be watched carefully and with a high level of professionalism.
Within a brief time, you determined that I had very dry eyes and discussed with me a treatment to improve my vision going forward. I started with the eyeXpress treatment as well as a daily regimen with warm eye packs and expressing my tear ducts. It made a huge difference in my eye comfort level within a very short time. What a relief! I also now use specific eye drops daily as well as blinking my eyes on a regular basis.
I am very grateful for finding you! I had been using contacts for about a year, but as time went on my eyesight was degrading and I became very frustrated with this current optometrist who told me he couldn't help. Luckily a friend of mine recommended you.“ - Kay M.
Thank you for your excellent care! And your staff is great, too. “
"I never want to go through such dry eye nonsense again. I look forward to my four-month follow-up knowing very well I will get a good report.
I couldn't have agreed more. My eyes feel so great, I can see much better, and I continue to use Retaine eye drops, the fish oil, the OcuSoft lid scrubs, the at-home eyeXpress treatment, and the eyelid massage.
During my annual eye exam, my dry eyes were red and sore. I really didn't know how bad they were. You suggested using Retaine eye drops and take three PRN fish oil for one month and with a follow-up visit. My eyes felt a little better, but testing showed they were pretty bad. That's the first I'd ever heard about eyeXpress. You explained everything so well, it only made sense to do the eyeXpress treatments. I opted for four treatments (one per month). After one month, I was not very encouraged, but after two months, I felt there was major improvement. Again, I was wrong. There was some improvement, but not nearly enough. Your instructions were very good, and I followed them with rare exceptions. After four months, you told me I was nearly normal (maybe you said my eyes were nearly normal). I'm told we hear what we want to hear.“- Paul M.
Thanks for taking great care of my eyes!”
“Game Changer!!! I've used Restasis and Xiidra drops. I've had eye plugs and I've done Lipiflow among other drops, compresses, and fish oil! When I initially saw [Dr. Julie Lam], she told me if we could get my evaporation level to “6” or “7” [seconds] she'd be happy, but there was no way I'd ever be an “8”, “9” or “10”! Well after the EyeXpress treatments, the pharma grade fish oil, the removal of the plugs, and the eye compresses at night, my last visit my left eye was “10” [seconds]!! The right was an “8” or “9” [seconds]! I'm so much more comfortable now. The light sensitivity has gone down, the excess eye watering is gone. I'm able to wear contacts responsibly for longer than a couple of hours! I'm very happy with the results and I thought I was doomed to be uncomfortable forever...Thank you [Dr. Julie Lam]!

“I tried eye drops but relief was temporary. After the EyeXpress treatment and daily treatment at home, my eyes are much better. The constant watering in eyes has stopped. Prior to the EyeXpress treatment I would suddenly have tears rolling down my cheeks. That symptom has stopped. The itchy eyes has stopped. I am very happy with my eyes current condition!” - Ronald
“My first dry eye treatment was Lipiflow. After one year all dry eye symptoms returned. I prefer the EyeXpress Eye Hydration System. After 4 treatments and doing my homework every day my dry eyes improved dramatically, and I feel a lot better. My eyes feel better even on windy days and allergy season. I have a lot less tearing, burning, stinging, and itchiness in my eyes. I rarely feel any eye problem and it's been almost 1 year.” - Karen M.
