Complete MGD Dry Eye Management with OPE/ IPL
Prolonged Dry Eye and Chronic Meibomian Gland (Lipid or Glands in both upper & Lower Lids) dysfunction are now a day’s a very common and increasing eye problem, often due to ageing, pollution effects, increased screen time & nutritional reasons.
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is blockage or anomaly of Meibomian gland, so they don’t secrete enough oils into the tears. As there is less oil, the aqueous tear film on the surface of the eye evaporates too quickly, thereby leading to an evaporative Dry Eye Syndrome.
Given the increased recognition of the importance of MGD, a great amount of attention has been paid to therapies targeting this condition.
Patients with moderate – severe MGD often complain that their quality of life is significantly adversely affected by MGD symptoms.
The time-tested and traditional treatment of MGD consist of warm compresses and lid massage & hygiene for removing obstructed meibum, as well as antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents to improve the quality of the meibum.
Latest development in treatment of MGD & moderate Dry Eye has come in the form of application of Optimal Pulse Energy (OPE) with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and the delivery of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT).
The MM Eyetech Institute recently added one more jewel in its armamentarium of having a highly advanced and most suitable instrument for MGD made by the Italian manufacturers Espansione, by the name of Eye Light.
