Intense Pulsed Light treatment for dry eye utilizes pulses of light to liquefy and release hardened oils that have clogged meibomian glands in the eyelids. IPL also affects vascularization and inflammation of the eyelids, reducing eyelid redness and stimulating healthy gland function.



Signs & Symptoms 

  • A stinging, burning or scratchy sensation in your eyes

  • Stringy mucus in or around your eyes

  • Sensitivity to light

  • Eye redness

  • A sensation of having something in your eyes

  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses

Common treatments for dry eye disease such as artificial tears, eyelid scrubs, and hot compresses focus on temporarily relieving symptoms instead of treating the cause of the condition. IPL therapy is designed to address the root cause of dry eye.

Many people will notice improvement in dry eye symptoms after their first or second treatment, your doctor will recommend a series of four IPL treatments.
