The retrospective, monocentric study carried out in the Ophthalmology Department at Brest University Hospital, evaluates the efficacy and tolerance of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy with low‐level light therapy (LLLT), our patented photo-biomodulation technology, in the treatment of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and more broadly ocular dryness, from both the subjective point of view of the patient, but also from the clinical point of view.
A cohort of patients (37 subjects, 74 eyes) with MGD associated with keratitis (Oxford Score greater than or equal to 1) underwent the protocol of 3 eye-light® sessions 14 days apart at 1 month and 3 months after, between January 2019 and April 2020.
The study, published on JFO, the Journal Français d’Ophtalmologie, by A.A. Benyoussef (MD), B. Cochener (MD, PhD) et al., has shown the clinical efficacy of combined therapy of intense pulsed light (OPE® IPL) with Low‑Level Light Therapy (LM® LLLT) in treating meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
The study demonstrates a significant improvement of OSDI scores at 1 month (P<0.0001) and 3 months (P<0.0001). The SPEED score, TBUT, Oxford score, Meibomian gland atrophy and NIBUT were also statistically and significantly improved at 1 and 3 moths.
Directly citing the conclusions of the paper:
Treatment with the Eye-Light® in three sessions every two weeks significantly reduced symptoms and ocular surface damage in patients with MGD. This data suggests that the use of Eye-Light® may represent a good option for patients with MGD.
