Dry Eye Institute


E-Eye IPL is a device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses.

The sculpted pulses are delivered under the shape of train pulses. The energy, spectrum and time period are precisely set to stimulate the Meibomian glands in order for them to return their normal function.

Treatment protocol

  • The session only take a few minutes.
  • Patients are comfortably seated on a treatment chair, preferably tilted.
  • The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the metal eyewear protection on the patients head to protect their eyes from the light. They then apply a hydrogel on the skin to protect it.
  • A series of four flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power.
  • The same process is then repeated under the lower eyelid of the other eye.



The stimulation leads to the Meibomian glands returning to their normal function in a very short time (a couple hours) following the treatment. This improvement will last for about a week after the initial treatment two to three weeks following the second treatment, then from a couple months onward. The effect is cumulative.
