Early Treatment Outcomes in Dry Eye Patients Treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

There is a new Abstract from Sravanthi Vegunta and Joanne F Shen, in association with ARVO, that desribes the early treatment results for meibomian gland dysfunction and ocular rosacea in dry eye patients treated with IPL therapy.


The most common cause of Dry Eye Syndrome is Evaporative Dry Eye. IPL is FDA approved to treat rosacea, and is now used to treat the ocular rosacea component of dry eye. 68.4% of patients in this study had a positive response to IPL. In summary, it is found that IPL treatment for ocular rosacea can improve dry eye symptoms.
