E-Eye IPL for Dry Eye

Clinical tests on 80 patients using a new IPL device for dry-eye syndrome have had “exceptional results”, according to the device distributor France Medical.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column]

France Medical said the device, known as ‘E-Eye’ is CE certified and generates a polychromatic-pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses. This light is precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands to return to their normal function a few hours after treatment. A session takes only a few minutes and the effect is cumulative. The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the goggles on the patient’s eyes and applies the hydrogel on the skin. A series of four flashes are applied under the lower eyelid.

A 2011/12 clinical study in France found patients (average age 67) showed a very noticeable improvement with a 90 per cent satisfaction rate on the first two treatments. Forty-five per cent of patients originally classified as level 2 (Oxford classification), after instillation of fluoresceine, improved by one or two levels. Eighty-one per cent of patients from level 1 improved by one level.
