Light spectrum generated by the E>Eye IPL
The E-Eye does not directly affect the Meibomian glands. Its action is INDIRECT.
The « flashed » areas (suborbital and zygomatic region) are the areas where the parasympathetic nerve passes.
It has been proved in several neurological studies that the emission on a nerve of infrared as a train of pulse leads to the creation of a micro gradient of temperature between the inner and the outer layer of the myelin sheath.
This micro gradient of temperature triggers the liberation of neurotransmitters.
Anatomically, the parasympathetic nerve is connected to the Meibomian gland by some of its branches.
The neurotransmitters released will then be able to interact with the Meibomian gland, stimulating the secretion and the contraction of the gland.
The treatment effects is cumulative and lasts

Patient with eye protection, 5 flashes positioning
The session only takes a few minutes.
Patients are comfortably seated on a treatment chair, preferably tilted. The optometrist or ophthalmologist adjusts the metal eyewear protection on the patient's head to protect their eyes from the light. Then, they apply an hydrogel on the skin to protect it.
A series of 5 flashes are applied under the lower eyelid, from the external canthus to the internal canthus, using the nominal power. The same process is then repeated under the lower eyelid of the other eye.
