Light modulation with optimal power energy – new dry eye treatment for upper and lower eye lids
Eye-Light® is an (intensive pulse light) IPL and low level light therapy (LLLT), which combines light modulation with OPE.
Eye-Light® simultaneously treats the lower and upper eye lids with direct and indirect applications and has the added benefit of not needing the application of gel during the treatment process, thanks to the patented and unique cooling module.
OPE® (IPL) is a polychromatic light that thanks to thermal pulses stimulates the Meibomian Glands to resume normal activities. has been identified to help treat MGD Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, which has been used for several years in dermatology practices as a treatment for rosacea and acne. OPE Optimal Power Energy/ IPL uses a Xenon flash tube with a wavelength of 600nm. OPE/IPL applied on the periorbital and cheekbone areas, it stimulates contraction of the glands, increasing the lipid stream and reducing the evaporation of tears.
Light Modulation® (LLLT) is patented photobiomodulation technology which has a strong metabolic enhancer that increases cellular action which emphasizes cell activity. LLLT is delivered through a face mask, which contains a LED matrix at a specific wavelength, triggering an endogenous heating of both upper and lower eyelids.
What is Dry Eye?
The Dry Eye is a disorder of the tear film due to a reduced production or excessive evaporation of tears, which causes damage to the exposed ocular surface, and is associated with a feeling of eye discomfort.
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.
When not working properly, they do not produce enough oil component 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.
These problems get worse in dry, windy or air-conditioned environments.
Major risk factors:
The treatment improves symptoms of the disease after a few hours. Thanks to the synergy of the two technologies (OPE and LLLT), the Meibomian glands resume the production of lipids necessary to the eye's functionality.
It is not painful, it lasts a few minutes and allows an immediate return to normal activities. View the demonstration videos (top of the page) to see how quick and effective the treatment with Eye-Light® is.
