A. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an advanced dry eye management option offered at Sussex Eye Laser Clinic. It’s designed to alleviate symptoms of dry eyes, ranging from mild to severe cases. IPL treatment uses controlled light pulses to target and stimulate the Meibomian glands, which are responsible for producing the oily layer of the tear film. By improving gland function and oil secretion, IPL can help relieve dry eye symptoms and enhance tear film stability.
