IPL treatment at Ohshima Eye Hospital
- May 23, 2017
Currently, IPL treatment is available at Ohshima Eye Hospital in Fukuoka.
IPL treatment is the exposure of intensive pulse light onto the skin of the cheek near eye (including lower eye lid) to improve the blood flow around the eye and eyelid. This procedure is reported to be effective for MGD.
I have to wear a sunglasses to prevent my eye from strong flashed light. Twelve to fifteen exposure of IPL is one set, usually two sets of exposure is recommended.
Several treatments have been introduced as the treatment of MGD, however, many doctors bother to treat refractory MGD patients. I hope IPL would be a big help for all ophthalmologists.
