Dry Eye Disease (DED) is one of the most common conditions seen by eye care professionals. In fact, 86% of Dry Eye Cases are caused by MGD (meibomian Gland Dysfunction).

The disease has a significant impact on the quality of life, with symptoms such as gritty/sandy sensation, burning, itching, pain, pressure, intermittent blurred vision, or even watery eyes.

Optima IPL is a revolutionary treatment that effectively breaks this vicious cycle of dry eye by addressing the inflammatory process behind it.

IPL alleviates abnormal blood vessel formation that leaves your eyelids looking chronically red and swollen. IPL also addresses blepharitis and demodex mites which could also exacerbate MGD and Dry Eye signs and symptoms.

IPL stands for “Intended Pulsed Light” and works by targeting the pigment on the surface of the skin and blood vessels below the surface. By addressing inflammation of both the skin and blood vessels, we can effectively reduce redness, swelling, and inflammation of the meibomian glands, therefore allowing them to properly function and thus stabilizing the patients tear film.
