Designs for Vision has been appointed as distributor of the E-Eye intense pulsed light (IPL) device in Australia.
E-Eye, manufactured by E-Swin in France, was formerly distributed in Australia and New Zealand by FM Distribution (previously known as France Medical), which went into receivership in August 2019.
Approximately 200 devices are currently being used by optometrists and ophthalmologists across the country to treat the symptoms of dry eye disease and meibomian gland dysfunction.
Cameron Loveless, Product Manager at Designs for Vision said gaining distribution rights for E-Eye in Australia was excellent news for both Designs for Vision and E-Eye customers.

“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 preeminent researchers including Associated Professor Jennifer Craig in New Zealand, and that we have a strong existing customer base, is reassuring.”
He said customers who have been uncertain about where they could obtain product support can also now feel reassured.
“Designs For Vision is one of Australia’s most respected suppliers to the ophthalmic industry. We were established in 1978 and have strong expertise right across the country. Partnering with a professional organisation like E-Swin is a natural fit for us, and customers will now have convenient and fast access to consumables and expert technical support.”
He said customers who had been purchasing consumables from E-Swin’s Australian subsidiary will be re-directed to Designs for Vision.
Designs for Vision will relaunch E-Eye at RANZCO Congress in Sydney in November and Petra Bruckmüller, President and Managing Director of E-Swin, will be at the Congress to speak with existing customers and others who are interested to find out more about the technology.
“We will celebrate the re-launch with special introductory pricing until the end of this year, so we encourage people to take advantage and stock up on consumables or purchase the unit itself,” said Mr Loveless.
