What is Dry Eye?

The Dry Eye is a disorder of the tear film due to reduced production or excessive evaporation of tears, which causes damage to the exposed ocular surface, and is associated with a feeling of eye discomfort.

When not working properly, the eyes do not produce enough oil components in the tear film, so tears evaporate more rapidly. Insufficient or absent lipid layer, can cause evaporation of the tear up to 16 times faster. Evaporation of tears is caused by the obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian Glands that are located in the eyelids, and are responsible for producing the lipid layer of the tears.

Common symptoms:

  - Itchiness
  - Foreign body sensation in the eye
  - Sensitivity to light (Photophobia)
  - Bother
  - Eye redness
  - Altered vision
  - Burning

These problems get worse in dry, windy or air-conditioned environments.

Major risk factors:    

  - Allergic conjunctivitis
  - Hormonal imbalances – Menopause

  - Use and abuse of eye cosmetics

  - Use of contact lenses
  - Chronic blepharitis
  - Age (especially after age 50)
  - Prolonged use of video terminals
  - Prolonged use of systemic drugs (Eg: antihistamines, etc.)
  - Air pollution




Eye-light® is superior to other IPL treatments in that it treats both upper and lower meibomian glands. As well as treating dry eye disease caused by MGD - the leading cause of DED, refractive and cataract surgery and other frequent pathologies, such as chalazion, styes, blepharitis, post-blepharoplasty and demodex are effectively treated.

The Eye-light suite of products use low-level laser therapy or LLLT, this patented photobiomodulation technology stimulates a cell’s mitochondria for better energy production and triggers biochemical and biophysical reactions improving protein synthesis. Due to the light emission of the LED matrix, the tear lipid layer is increased and stabilised.

The Eye-light treatment is totally automated and consists of just 5 painless light shots (OPE/IPL) around the eye and on the inferior eyelid inducing increased blood flow by contracting the blood vessels, and it improves the secretion of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

ME-CHECK® Diagnosis


Me-check® analyses the cause of the patients dry eye and selects the appropriate duration of each treatment required with the Eye-light or my-mask.The software automatically detects and calculates meibomian gland patency percentage.The revolutionary 3D Meibography imaging provides two clear advantages to the Clinician, firstly, it enables the clinician to confirm the presence of abnormal glands versus that of a healthy individual, and secondly, it provides a clear image to share with the patient to help to explain the potential cause of their dry-eye.

The benefits
- 3D / HD imaging
- Objective and fully automated screening
- Easy-to-use
- Non-contact examination
- Cloud-based app and patient database
- Software is always up to date due to cloud connectivity
- Can be used stand-alone or on a slit lamp



The “safe way” to treat your MGD patients from the comfort of their own home, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

- Light Modulation® / LLLT
- Supportive treatment for most severe cases
- Complete treatment for less severe cases
Tear Blue®  Improved Schirmer test with persistence of blue tear’s level



Meibomask® provides customised treatments based on the MGD severity level detected with the Me-check® screening, then according to the severity of meibomian glands loss, the Meibomask® releases the correct amount of energy and automatically sets the duration of the treatment.

The benefits

- Lower and upper eyelids treatment
- Direct treatment of meibomian glands
- The LED matrix triggers eyelid endogenous heat and ATP production
- Removes glands blockage, allows lipids to flow to complete tear composition

- Improved lipid presence avoids fast evaporation of tears
- Visible results for the patient as from the first treatment
