IPL for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Recommended Posts

"Concurrent improvement of ocular surface conditions observed in patients treated for rosacea of their face, led to the potential implementation of intense pulsed light (IPL) for the treatment of MGD (meibomian gland dysfunction). IPL has been widely used in dermatology to treat various conditions such as rosacea, benign vascular lesions, and pigmented lesions....Patients with low meibum expressibility and tear film instability experienced greater improvement in symptoms after IPL treatment. The improvement in meibum expressibility was also associated with a decrease in tear inflammatory cytokine levels. Therefore, meibum expressibility improvement might be a good therapeutic target of IPL treatment in patients with MGD and DED, and could be an indicator of ocular surface inflammation during IPL treatment."
