Montreal, May 24, 2018 (Globe Newswire) – I-MED Pharma Inc., a Canadian company specializing in dry eye diagnosis and management, is pleased to announce the signing of a Canadian distribution agreement with ESW Vision for the patented E>Eye device.
E>Eye, designed and manufactured in France by E-Swin, is the first and only CE certified medical device in the world using patented IRPL® technology developed specifically for the treatment of dry eye disease caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), the leading cause of evaporative dry eye disease.
This new type of polychromatic pulsed light produces perfectly calibrated and homogeneously sequenced “cold light” pulses which safely stimulate the meibomian glands to resume secretions, restoring the lacrimal film, thus improving symptoms associated with ocular dryness.
- Clinically proven
- Quick, painless and non-invasive
- Fast, effective results
Daniel Hofmann, President of I-MED Pharma stated, “E-Swin is a global leader in ocular IPL laser technology and has garnered huge interest in the industry with the success of the E>Eye device in providing effective, long-term results with symptoms associated with evaporative dry eye caused by MGD. We are thrilled to partner with ESW Vision to add this industry leading device to our dry eye product portfolio. We are confident that Canadian ophthalmologists and optometrists will be enthusiastic to incorporate the E>Eye System into their dry eye practices.”
