Dry eye disease is a common eye disorder that causes dry, burning, red eyes and fluctuating vision. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is the leading cause of dry eye disease, and plays a role in about 86% of cases.

A recent FDA trial showed that Lumenis IPL with patented Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT®) significantly improved tear breakup time, meibum quality, and meibomian gland expressibility.

About this video:
Ever heard of IPL? It stands for Intense Pulse Light and In this video, I traveled to Seattle, Washington to get IPL for dry eye. Intense Pulsed Light works for many conditions and is now offered as both a dry eye treatment and meibomian gland dysfunction treatment. If you are considering IPL for dry eye treatment then it is important to follow up with a dry eye specialist in either optometry or ophthalmology that is offering IPL Intense Pulsed Light treatment.
