CPD night: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, therapy for dry eye management
Brisbane, November 2017
France Medical is organising a CPD night in Melbourne around dry eye management.
 

Dry eye condition is a growing nuisance amongst patients with around 30% of the population affected. This figure has kept growing during the last decade with younger generations affected because of excessive use of digital screens.

During this event, speakers will discuss how to deal with this common disease efficiently and how eye care professionals can get the most from it using the adequate diagnosis tool and the IPL technology.

Event agenda:
- Dry eye condition and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) management.
- How to diagnose dry eyes efficiently even at a very early stage?
- How to offer long-lasting relief to your dry eye patients?
- How to successfully implement dry eye management in your practice? 

Equipment released during the event:

Dry eye diagnosis tool: Antares, by Italian manufacturer CSO

Antares is an all-in-one device that performs corneal topography, NIBUT analysis, lipid layer grading, infrared meibography, pupillography and contact lenses fitting.

Its built-in keratometer and automatic measurement system give access to a unique feature called auto-fit, which ensures optimum accuracy in the selection of contact lenses. The practitioner can check in real time if models and diameters fit the cornea offering perfectly calibrated lenses to the patient. 

Dry eye treatment tool: E-Eye, by French manufacturer E-Swin

E-Eye is an IPL device that generates a polychromatic pulsed light by producing perfectly calibrated and homogenously sequenced light pulses. It does not directly affect the Meibomian Glands. Its action is INDIRECT.

The flash emitted during the treatment is going to stimulate the creation of neurotransmitters by the nerve connected to the Meibomian Glands. The neurotransmitters released will then be able to interact with the Meibomian Glands, stimulating the secretion and the contraction of the glands. It leads the latter to return to their normal function, relieving the eyes from dryness.
