The iLUX® MGD treatment system administers therapeutic heat and then expresses the oil directly from the blocked meibomian glands. Now that the glands are unblocked, it will be easier for the oil to be released naturally.
The iLUX® device was shown to significantly reduce dry eye symptoms such as gritty eyes and irritation.' In a clinical study, patients' meibomian gland scores were three times better at two weeks post-treatment and four times better at four weeks, compared to baseline.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a new technology that generates polychromatic pulsed light, which stimulates the meibomian glands in complete safety. In response to this stimulation, the meibomian glands resume secretion, helping to improve the structure of the lachrymal film and symptoms of ocular dryness. This technology is non-invasive, entirely painless, and completely harmless to the eyeball.
The achieved effects appear very rapidly after each session, and their persistence over time increases with the number of sessions conducted.
