2017 Cost of Intensed Pulse Light (IPL) for Dry Eyes
IPL is a relatively new procedure which we have been performing for about 2 years now that helps patients with dry eyes.
I have posted on how it likely works here: https://drcremers.com/2017/02/intense-pulse-light-ipl-risks-and.html?q=IPL
Here is another good post about improvements seen now with more patients: https://drcremers.com/2016/11/ipl-intense-pulse-light-before-and.html?q=IPL
How much does IPL cost?
The typical cost for IPL near Baltimore, Maryland and Washington DC area ranges from $600 – $1,000 with an average cost of $550 near Baltimore and an average of $575 from all locations. Costs vary by surgeon, geographic region, and the complexity of the procedure. Cost estimates are based on 3 patient reviews near Baltimore and 688 reviews submitted on RealSelf.
We at Visionary Eye Doctors charge less per session for dry eyes with eyelid expression (which we video tape during the session), than most other locations nationally. Also, we express the upper lids, which we heard Dr. Toyos & other eyeMDs do not do. We often videotape the expression so patients can see the quality of their meibum.
I will post a series of videos a patient with severe meibomian gland loss who had improvement over multiple IPL expression and significant improvement in symptoms.
Here is a previous post on cost on other dry eye procedures by Dr. Maskin.
