The Lumenis Intense-Pulsed Light(IPL) device has been found to significantly improve the root cause of dry eye problems by temporarily heating the meibomian glands found in the upper and lower eyelids to increase the base layer of tears in the eye. It is estimated that there are 45 million people suffering from Dry Eye Disease (DES) in the United States, yet in the majority of cases it goes undiagnosed. According to the latest published study by the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Disease Dry Eye Workshop Committee (TFOS-DEWS 2), nearly 80% of the root cause of dry eye problems centers around clogged meibomian glands in the eyelids.
