WHAT IS IPL?
E>Eye device generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses. The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate by innervation the Meibomian glands in order for them to return to their normal function. Plus the heat generated by the flash of the IPL will warm and unblock the glands.
Each session only takes 3 to 5 minutes.
The skin is cleaned from any make-up or other cosmetics.
The optometrist adjusts the goggles on the patients’ eyes to protect them from the intense light generated by the device.
A conductive clear gel is applied on the skin for the skin protection and optimum results.
A series of 4 flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power.
Results are immediate and cumulative.
For optimum results Meibomian glands expression is recommended following an E>Eye treatment.
The stimulation leads to the Meibomian glands returning to their normal function in a very short time following the treatment.
This improvement will last for about a week after the initial treatment, two to three weeks following the second treatment, then from a couple of months onward. The effect is cumulative.
The ocular globe would need to be protected by a haptic contact lens.
Results obtained two months after the third treatment:
Patients classified as level 1 have improved by one level.
Patients classified as level 2 (Oxford classification) have improved by one or two levels.
Patients classified from level 3 to 4 have improved by one to two levels.
