New treatment available for Dry Eye: E-Eye Intense Pulsed Light Technology

E-Eye is a device that generates polychromatic pulsed light pulses (Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL) to directly treat the Meibomian glands of patients diagnosed with dry eye disorders. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a major cause of dry eye discomfort. Treatment with E-Eye over several sessions can stimulate the function of these oil-producing glands, restoring the lipid layer of the ocular surface. The perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses of E-Eye are delivered in the form of regulated train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely calculated to stimulate the meibomian glands. Available at our Poole branch.
