The practice hopes its newly expanded Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment will encourage more Westchester County residents to seek this effective remedy for various dry eye conditions. Among the conditions IPL can cure and prevent are Dry Eye Disease (DED) caused by Meibomian Glands Dysfunction (MGD) and Sjogren’s Syndrome.

Following the announcement, Westchester Eyes offers a non-invasive, long-lasting remedy for the discomfort and redness caused by dry eye conditions. Westchester Eyes can treat patients with two different types of IPL technologies: The Espansione Optimal Power Energy(R) Intense Pulsed Light (OPE IPL) and Light Modulation(R) Low-Level Light Therapy (LM LLLT).
Consistent and sustainable tear production is essential for protecting and maintaining a healthy cornea, which is the front surface of the eye. Without proper lubrication, the eye can experience chronic dryness, leading to redness, blurred vision, light sensitivity, burning, itching, and general discomfort. If left untreated, chronic eye dryness can cause more permanent damage to the cornea and eyelid, eventually leading to serious vision loss, Westchester Eyes explains.
The optometrists at Westchester Eyes are specialized in treating dry eye conditions. Their facility features a dedicated center with a suite of technologies designed specifically for dry eye treatments. In addition to the two aforementioned IPL treatment machines, Westchester Eyes also employs the LidPro Eye Exfoliator and the MiBoFlo Thermoelectric device which uses thermoelectric heat to encourage the Meibomian glands to secrete a healthy amount of natural oils.
For patients experiencing dry eyes, the optometrists at Westchester Eyes will perform a comprehensive eye examination including testing that evaluates the quantity and quality of their tear production. From there, the specialized optometrist will work with the patient to design a treatment plan that best suits their needs and desired outcomes.
