Treatment of Dry Eye Disease by High Intensity Pulsed Light
High-intensity pulsed light (IPL) can significantly alleviate the symptoms and signs of Dry Eye Disease.

It is a safe and painless method.

It is indicated for the treatment of Evaporative Dry Eye Disease, whose symptoms are due to dysfunction of the Meibomius Glands responsible for producing the lipid component of the tear film.

IPL, with the appropriate parameters and filters, when applied to the lower eyelid area and the temporal region, will stimulate blood circulation and activate the nerve endings around the Meibomius Glands. The heat will also improve the quality of the meibum and its fluidity.

In this way, it is possible to improve tear quality and the lubrication of the ocular surface, preventing the rapid evaporation of the tear film and providing adequate lubrication to keep the ocular surface healthy.

Consistent improvement in symptoms usually requires three to four therapeutic sessions.

Treatment may be repeated later if the disease worsens again.
