IRPL Treatment for dry eye - How it works?
Dry eye treatment with Tearstim IRPL (Latest Generation of E-EYE IRPL) only takes a few minutes, sitting in a comfortably chair. The eyes from the patient are covered by protective eyecups. Hydrogel is applied to the lower eyelid. A series of light pulses is performed around the lower eye, gentle and non-invasive. The series is repeated in the same way for both eyes. The treatment restores the normal activity of the Meibomian gland, with very rapid improvement for the patient from the very first session. The effect of first two treatments lasts a few days up to 2 to 3 weeks. The long-lasting effect is expected for minimum 6 months up to 3 years. The IRPL protocol comprises three to four sessions. It is recommended to repeat one application once symptoms are coming back.
As a result, the dry lipid layer receives a natural boost of lipids, which reduces the evaporation of tear fluid and prevents the eye from drying out. In addition, the quality of the glandular secretions is improved, and the tear film‘s lipid layer is stabilized.
