How IRPL® Technology Works
E>Eye is a dry eye treatment that generates a new polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogeneously sequenced light pulses. The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of regulated train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the meibomian glands to improve their function.

Simple & Fast
Session treatments take only a few minutes.
Patients are comfortably seated on a treatment chair, preferably tilted. The metal eyewear protection is adjusted on the patient’s eyes. Optical gel is then applied to the cheekbone and the temporal areas.
A series of 5 flashes is applied under one eye, starting from the inner canthus up to the temporal area, using the nominal power.
The same process is then repeated under the other eye.
IRPL® treatments lead to an improvement in the function of the meibomian glands in a very short amount of time (approximately two hours) following the treatment.
The full success of treatment depends on compliance with a specific protocol. For optimal results, perform treatments on Day One, Day 15, and Day 45, and then as needed according to the patient’s symptoms.
Why Prep your Eyes for Cataract and Laser Surgeries?
A healthy eye is extremely important when it comes to a successful cataract or laser surgery outcome. If the surface of the eye is not in optimal condition, it can affect the measurements your optometrist will take to determine the correct power for the new lens. Severe cases of ocular surface disease could raise chances of intraocular infection after surgery.
We recommend treating all ocular surface issues prior to surgery. Your optometrist may prescribe medications –eye drops or ointments – to control inflammation and fight infection. You may be prescribed artificial tears to help improve the ocular surface.
Dry eye is a common eye condition that occurs when your eyes do not produce enough quality tears and don’t provide adequate lubrication. While the name implies dryness, not all patients with clinically significant dry eyes feel a particular discomfort. Some experience watering, excessive blinking, squinting, itching, and eye strain.
Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids. It usually occurs when tiny oil glands near the base of the eyelid become clogged, but it can also be caused by allergies and other conditions. It can cause red, watery eyes, a gritty burning sensation in the eye, swollen or itchy eyelids, and crusty eyelashes. It is important to treat blepharitis prior to cataract or laser surgery to prevent serious infection.
