The most common cause of dry eye is rapid evaporation from lack of sufficient lipid or oil production from Meibomian glands located within your eyelids. There are many ways of treating this and one of the most innovative is the use of Intense Pulsed Light therapy.

The treatment involves the delivery of a series of light pulses and works by stimulating the Meibomian glands to produce lipids/oils. Although three treatments are recommended over a period of six weeks, many patients notice a difference in their eye comfort within a few hours to days following the first treatment.
IPL is scientifically proven to be safe and a comprehensive skin test is carried out before any treatment.
Here at TK&S we use Eye-Light. This is a hi-tech new device which combines two painless treatments – Intense Pulsed Light (IP) and Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) – to stimulate the Meibomian glands and promote a natural lipid flow, reducing the evaporation of tears.
