Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy for Dry Eyes

*Currently available at Eyecare Plus Broadway and Eyecare Plus Chullora

Have you tried almost anything for your dry eyes, but failed to find relief?

  • Are you tired of the constant discomfort caused by dry eyes?
  • Are over-the-counter artificial tear solutions not doing the trick anymore?
  • Are you experiencing redness, sandy or gritty sensation, excess watery eyes, burning, itching, excess mucous discharge, fluctuating/blurred vision or excessive blinking?
  • Are you sensitive to computer glare, wind, air conditioning or heaters, air pollutants / smoke, contact lenses or bright light?
  • Do you have Meibomian gland dysfunction, ocular rosacea or dry eyes with inflammation?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, you may benefit from IPL + LLLT treatments!

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a real treatment option for patients suffering from Dry Eyes.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treats the cause of the dry eye problem with light pulses that penetrate the tissue, creates heat and targets the abnormal blood vessels that are the cause of dry eyes. IPL technology treats the skin and eyelid inflammation by removing the abnormal vessels.

Approximately 80% of Dry Eye Syndrome cases are caused by Meibomian gland dysfunction. IPL treats the Meibomian glands, which are the glands along the rims of the eyelid that produce meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film. The emission of high power light applied around the eyes leads to a stimulation of the Meibomian glands to produce a higher secretion of meibum, thus increasing the natural lipid flow. This reduces tear evaporation and provides dry eye relief!

IPL combined with LLLT therapy for even better results!

We use an LLLT (Low-Level Laser Therapy) mask, a device that utilizes low-level laser technology to provide therapeutic benefits for various conditions including dry eyes. The mask is designed to be worn over the eyes, delivering low-level laser light to the eye area.

The benefits of an LLLT mask for dry eyes include:

  • stimulates tear production and reduces inflammation to help relieve symptoms associated with dry eyes.
  • stimulates cellular activity and enhances the healing process in the eye tissues, promoting overall eye health.
  • improves blood circulation in the eye area, enhancing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the eyes and improving their overall condition.
  • enhancing oil gland function, which plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability of tears and preventing rapid evaporation.

Both IPL and LLLT treatments have been shown to work wonders in relieving symptoms of dry eyes.
