Hello Dr. Hartzok,

Do you have any experience/opinion on this kind of treatment? Is it safe to apply or could there be serious side effects similar like to a LASIK procedure?

With best regards,
Paul

Paul,

Sorry for the delayed response. I was away and didn't check the BB.

I'm afraid I don't have any experience with it but it sounds promising. It is limited to patients with reduced meibomian gland secretions so it is not beneficial to all dry eye sufferers. But anything that can be done to enhance meibomian gland functioning is a welcomed treatment.
Thank you for your answer!

I was asking, because I have found 1-2 articles, where the patients Iris were damaged as a side effect of general IPL. But it seems that in those cases no eye shields were used.

Therefore, I was wondering whether you had any patient (searching for rehab help) who complained about eye problems after having correct IPL treatment.

I think one cannot be careful enough.

In case I try this procedure, I will drop a short message if it was helpful or not.

With best regards,
Paul
