    3rd IPL

    Anyone had success with IPL?

    Ipl in scotland?

    Does anyone know if there is IPL in scotland and if it's affordable? Ipl is the only thing I haven't tried yet. Maintaining the disease with fish oil, allergy eye drops, warm compress and hypotonic drops.

    Mild Mgd

    I've been on here a while looking at IPL/Lipiflow but cant get access to Lipiflow... So would IPL be an option for someone who has mild mgd? I'm already doing warm compresses once a week, fish oil (thera tears) daily, and lid scrubs only when I need it. Is there any other options for mgd? I think my...
