Purpose of review Evaporative dry eye disease is one of the most common types of dry eye. It is often the result of chronic meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and associated ocular rosacea. Evaporative dry eye and MGD significantly reduce patient's quality of life. Traditional treatments, such as artificial tears, warm compresses, and medications, such as topical cyclosporine, azithromycin, and oral doxycycline, provide some relief; however, many patients still suffer from dry eye symptoms… Expand
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy In The Treatment Of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction: Current Perspectives
TLDR
This review summarizes the clinical outcomes of IPL therapy in MGD patients pointing out its potential role in the therapeutic algorithm of the disease. Expand
Use of Intense Pulsed Light to Mitigate Meibomian Gland Dysfunction for Dry Eye Disease
TLDR
It is concluded that IPL is a potentially beneficial tool and essential future therapy for dry eye disease and tools to recognize potentially severe side effects of DED earlier in order to treat or prevent them must be developed. Expand
Intense Pulsed Light for the Treatment of Dry Eye Owing to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.
TLDR
Although IPL treatment provides an improvement of both ocular surface parameters and ocular discomfort symptoms after one cycle of three sessions, regular repeated treatments are usually required to maintain the persistence over the time of its beneficial effects. Expand
