Rolando and Melissa Toyos talk about their current research into intense pulse light (IPL) therapy for dry eye disease. IPL therapy is a light treatment applied to the skin to stimulate the meibomian glands to produce a better tear. The current study looks at the efficacy of IPL versus meibomian gland expression, and the results will be available in around 6 months. Another area of research is the platelet rich plasma (PRP) eye drops in the treatment of a number of conditions including oculoplastic procedures.
