How Does Inflammation Relate to Dry Eyes?

Inflammation and dry eyes are cyclical. When the tissues around the eyes are inflamed, the eyes canโ€™t produce a healthy tear film. Without a healthy tear film, the eyes become dry and irritated. When the eyes are dry and irritated, the tissues around the eyes become inflamed. The cycle just repeats itself over and over from there.

Itโ€™s not uncommon for skin conditions like ocular rosacea to trigger this cycle.

What Is IPL Therapy?

IPL or intense pulsed light therapy is an in-office treatment that uses light to treat a variety of skin conditions.
The method of IPL we use, called Lumenis, is specially designed to treat dry eye disease by reducing inflammation caused by conditions like ocular rosacea and telangiectasia (also known as spider veins).

How Does IPL Therapy Work?

We perform IPL by applying a specific wavelength of light to your eyelids, which is then absorbed by certain blood vessels. The light seals these blood vessels, which reduces inflammation.
The light energy may also improve your tear film by warming up the meibomian glands, which helps your eyes produce a healthier tear film.

What to Expect From IPL Therapy?

Before starting IPL therapy, weโ€™ll meet for a consultation to make sure this is the right course of treatment for you. If we think youโ€™ll benefit from IPL, we will schedule your treatment.
Your treatment session should only take approximately 10 minutes. You may feel some heat when we apply the light to your skin. Most patients report little to no discomfort.

Patients usually require more than one treatment to get the best results. You should notice a difference within 2 weeks of your second treatment.
