About Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome is a common pathology affecting - depending on the area - more than 20% of the population. Females are more affected than males, while increasing age also contributes to greater prevalence. It is mainly caused by the conditions of the modern life (computer screens, driving cars, artificial lights, pollution, eye contact lenses etc.).

The dry eye syndrome is generally due to a Meibomian gland dysfunction, also called Blepharitis. This results in the important oil layer of our tears being unstable and thinner than it should normally be. This leads to dryness, irritation, redness and blurred vision.

How does it work?

The E-Eye is an IPL device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands in order for them to return their normal function.

The E-Eye uses intuitive and simple software managed from a LCD touch screen. It starts in a few seconds and does not require any pre-heating.

The Treatment

Our optometrists adjust 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 session takes only a few minutes. The E-Eye is an IPL device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light, so no needles or injections are required.

The Results

The results are visible a couple of hours after the treatment and the effect is cumulative. The improvement will last for about two weeks after the first treatment, four weeks after the second one, then from a couple of months onward. For optimum results three treatments are recommended.

Instant Improvements

The E-Eye stimulation leads to the Meibomian glands returning to improved function in a very short time (a couple hours) following the treatment. This improvement will last for about a week after the initial treatment two to three weeks following the second treatment, then for months onward. The effect is cumulative.
