Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

Virginia Eyecare Center is now offering a revolutionary new treatment for Dry Eye Disease and Blepharitis.

IPL was originally developed for use in Dermatology to treat age spots, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, and to brighten skin. In treating these conditions, it was also discovered that people’s dry eye symptoms were also improving dramatically!

Dry Eye and Blepharitis are most commonly caused by the formation of vascular abnormalities in and around the eyelids, which release inflammatory agents.

IPL is an excellent technology for treating vascular skin lesions. IPL is selectively absorbed in the hemoglobin of abnormal blood vessels, and destroys them by thrombosis. A major source of inflammation threatening the eyelids is then removed, while at the same time improving skin appearance.

IPL is a fast, safe and effective and natural treatment that treats the source of your Dry Eye Disease and can lessen your dependence on pharmaceutical agents.
