Dry Eye is a tear film disorder due to reduced production or excessive evaporation of tears, which damages to the exposed ocular surface and is associated to a sensation of eye discomfort. Excessive evaporation of tears (cause of 86% of Dry Eye cases) is induced by the obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian glands that are located in the eyelids, and are responsible for producing the tears lipid layer . When not working properly, the Meibomian gland does not produce enough oily components for the tear film, which consequently evaporates quicker. Insufficient or absent lipid layer, can cause tear evaporation up to 16 times faster.

The synergy between two medical technologies optimizes the treatment of dry eye related pathologies.
OPE®(IPL) treats the Meibomian glands. Applied on periorbital and cheekbone areas, it was verified by various neurological studies that the emission of high power light impulses leads to a stimulation of neurotransmitters. These solicit the Meibomian glands to produce, contracting, a higher secretion thus increasing the natural lipid flow which reduces tears evaporation.
