Intense Pulsating Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsating Light (IPL) therapy is an innovative treatment used primarily for managing dry eye syndrome caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). MGD occurs when the meibomian glands in the eyelids become blocked or dysfunctional, affecting tear quality. IPL treatment involves applying light pulses to the eyelid area, which helps to unblock these glands and improve tear quality.
IPL therapy not only alleviates dry eye symptoms but also offers a long-term solution by addressing the root cause of the problem. It’s a non-invasive procedure, typically involving multiple treatment sessions. Patients often report significant improvements in dry eye symptoms following IPL therapy, making it a valuable tool in dry eye management.
