OPE® (IPL) is a polychromatic light that thanks to thermal pulses stimulates the Meibomian Glands to resume normal activities
OPE® / IPL NO GEL REQUIRED
OTHER OPHTHALMIC TREATMENTS (eg POST-BLEFAROPLASTICA)
Applied to the periorbital and cheekbone areas, it stimulates the contraction of the glands by increasing the lipid flow and reducing the evaporation of tears.
What is Dry Eye?
The Dry Eye is a disorder of the tear film due to a reduced production or excessive evaporation of tears, which causes damage to the exposed ocular surface, and is associated with a feeling of eye discomfort.
Evaporation of tears is caused by the obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian Glands that are located in the eyelids, and are responsible for producing the lipid layer of the tears.
When not working properly, they do not produce enough oil component in the tear film, so tears evaporate more rapidly. Insufficient or absent lipid layer, can cause evaporation of the tear up to 16 times faster.
