Should you consider IPL treatment to maintain healthier eyes?


Without knowledge, we may suffer from any inflammatory condition spanning from dry eye evaporative to aqueous deficient impairments. Also, similar to a vast percentage of our general population, we may also suffer associated symptoms including irritation, fatigue, redness, discharge, and obscured vision. 


Rather than await worsening impediments to overall visual health, we should regard dry eye symptoms as signals to treat the condition and underlying cause.  Now, is the best time to consider more proactive approaches like Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). This FDA-approved technology allows for a more preventative and less invasive approach to eye care. It works by gently stimulating the meibomian glands, aiding the liquifying and emitting of hardened and congested oils.


Dry Eye & Specialty center highly recommends IPL treatments as a part of an eye health maintenance program for dry eye patients predicated on each individual’s actual needs rather than the endless tear substitute prescription cycle which never seems to work. So, if you find yourself suffering from frequent eye irritation, you may want to consider if you would be an IPL treatment candidate.  To find out a specific plan to get your dry eye under control, give us a call today.
