New Device to Maintain IPL Dry Eye Treatment at Home

A new device has been created by Dr. Rolando Toyos for use at home, to maintain the effects of Intense Pulsed Light treatment for Dry Eye.


IPL as a treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) – related Dry Eye was developed by Dr. Toyos and DermaMed Solutions, LLC.


IPL uses xenon light at a wavelength of 500 nm. The light penetrates into the dermal layer and closes the abnormal blood vessels that secrete inflammatory mediators.  The new home-use device uses a different wavelength in the 600 nm range, which is safe for patients to use at home.


“The treatment can be performed twice a week to stimulate the glands and better maintain the effect of IPL,” Toyos said, at the annual joint meeting of Ocular Surgery News and the Italian Society of Ophthalmology.
