About me

Dr. Jilber Fouladian with over 20 years of experience provides dry eye treatments in addition to comprehensive & routine eye examination. Dry eyes have been the biggest challenge over the years for most eye care providers and pharmaceuticals. Every year many major pharmaceutical companies try to explore and treat dry eyes with medicated eye drops from low cost artificial tears all the way to high cost immunomodulator eye drops. Due to usage of staring at digital screens the number of people with dry eyes has multiplied over the last decades. In our practice Dr. Fouladian has seen a host of different reasons for dry eyes. From new medications like inhalers or injections or orals to hormonal changes/menopause and usage of screen and contact lenses. Our aging population suffers as well due to a combination of many factors. In addition most patients with autoimmune diseases suffer from dry and inflamed eyes. In our office there is a priority to treat dry eyes since all ages and genders do complain of eye irritation and discomfort.

In our dry eye treatment plan we have the opportunity to use one the most sophisticated equipment and leader in the industry of dry eye treatment and aesthetic. InMode Envision has opened a door to all patients with different ethnicity and skin color to receive and benefit from dry eye treatments. You can have an instant relief after your first treatment and the effect of it will extend 2-3 weeks' time.

Our approach is very simple and easy to understand. Dry eyes is considered an inflammatory condition that progresses over the years and it can become more aggravating with age, hormones, medications, contact lenses, screen time and many more factors. InMode Envision provides two different treatment plans that use radio frequency (RF) and intense pulse lighting (IPL) to treat and prolong your relief from dry eye condition. In this treatment InMode envision uses RF with the help of IPL to activate the function of glands that produce your essential tears and oil along with eradicating inflammation through the use of IPL treatment.​​​​​​​

Ocular Surface Inflammation & Meibomian gland dysfunction

Ocular surface inflammation: Interested to learn more about ocular inflammation and meibomian gland dysfunction? Ocular inflammation is the result of immune related responses and or other autoimmune diseases. There are other factors that result in inflammatory conditions like age, hormones, medications, allergies/contact lenses and past eye surgeries. Dry eyes is considered an inflammatory condition of the ocular surface and surrounds that progresses and becomes more aggravating if it is left untreated.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction: Meibomian glands are very small glands in the upper and lower eyelids that have little orifices extending near eyelashes and their job is to produce a right balance of tears and oil. The meibomian glands due to ocular inflammation or imbalance levels of tears and oil production will harden and result in blockage or clogging of the glands. Therefore the essential tear production for keeping the moisture to the ocular surface will go to a halt. These glands are different from the lacrimal glands that trigger during an emotional situation like crying. Patients with meibomian gland dysfunction trigger the wrong “lacrimal glands” that produce salty tears instead of triggering the right “meibomian glands” in order to compensate for the dry eye condition. This is the reason that most dry eye patients complain of excessive tearing and stinging feeling which results in further exacerbating their dry eye condition. In some instances this condition becomes more problematic when the glands blockage results in stye or chalazion. Patients usually can not use contact lenses and there is a down time where most patient can not go to work due to the appearance or pain/discomfort.
