IPL laser for dry eye
PULSED LIGHT FOR DRY EYE.
Many patients come to our clinic with dry eye syndrome, so our responsibility is to offer them the best treatments.
In this case, we have to talk about one of the newest treatments as far as dry eye is concerned: IPL laser (intense pulsed light laser)..
It is a non-invasive, painless and harmless pulsed light treatment for dry eyes. It consists of a regulated intense pulsed light that is applied to the cheekbones.
WHAT IS THE IPL LASER?
The IPL laser is a pulsed light intense capable of generating uniform sequences and perfectly calibrated light pulses with absolute safety.
This is a cold light, which stimulates the Meibomian glands to secrete mucus. In this way the structure of the tear layer will regenerate and combat the symptoms associated with dry eye syndrome.
WHY DO YOU USE PULSED LIGHT FOR DRY EYE?
This is a highly recommended method for this type of problem as it is harmless and can be repeated as many times as necessary.
INTENSE PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT FOR DRY EYE.
If we want to guarantee the efficacy of the regulated pulsed light treatment for dry eye syndrome, 3 sessions should be programmed since in the first two sessions the patient will not notice any improvement at all, being from the third session when the patient begins to notice improvements in his symptoms.
HOW IS THE IPL PROCESS FOR DRY EYE?
The entire process takes only a few minutes, first the protectors are placed over the eyes as the treatment is done on the cheekbones and the temporary area and at all times with the eyes protected from light.
Secondly, a gel is applied and you will be given a series of 5 flashes from the inside to the outside. The process will be done first in one eye and then in the other.
Finally, the gel residues are cleaned with water once the treatment is finished.
