Dry-eye syndrome treatment using intense pulsed light technology
Designs for Vision has announced that it is the new distributor of the E-Eye intense regulated pulsed light (IRPL) device in Australia.
E-Eye has been the market leading IPL system and is manufactured by E-Swin in France. Approximately 200 devices are currently being used by optometrists and ophthalmologists in Australia to treat the symptoms of dry eye disease and meibomian gland dysfunction.
Designs for Vision Product Manager Cameron Loveless said that adding E-Eye to the DFV product portfolio was excellent news, especially for existing E-Eye owners.
“We are really excited to have been appointed distributor - it’s a new chapter for our business and although it is a significant investment for us, knowing that the E-Eye has been supported with numerous clinical studies by pre-eminent researchers including Associated Professor Jennifer Craig in New Zealand, and that we have a strong existing customer base, is reassuring.”
The deal will reassure E-Eye purchasers that they will get full and ongoing product support.
“Designs For Vision is one of Australia’s most respected suppliers to the ophthalmic industry. We were established in 1978 and have strong clinical and service expertise right across the country. Partnering with a professional organisation in E-Swin is a natural fit for, and customers will now have convenient and fast access to consumables and expert technical support.”
Customers who have previously purchased consumables from E-Swin’s Australian subsidiary will be re-directed to Designs for Vision with new stock arriving almost immediately.
Designs for Vision will show E-Eye at RANZCO Congress in Sydney in November with E-Swin President and Managing Director, Petra Bruckmüller, at the Congress to talk with practitioners who are interested in learning more about the technology.
“We will celebrate the re-launch with special introductory pricing until the end of 2019, so we encourage people to take advantage and stock up on consumables or purchase the unit itself,” said Mr Loveless.
