Vision X in Parnell can now offer E-Eye I.P.L (Intense Pulsed Light) technology to alleviate Dry Eye symptoms.
Dry Eye Syndrome is a common condition affecting around 20% of the population. Females are more affected than males, while increasing age also contributes to greater prevalence. It can be made worse by the conditions of the modern life such as viewing computer screens, artificial lights, wearing contact lenses and air conditioning. Previous eye surgery may also add to the discomfort caused by dry eye.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands in order for them to return to their normal function and therefore addressing the problem at the source, returning the ocular surface to a normal state.
