Thermal pulsation therapy may significantly improve dry eye symptoms and may improve objective clinical parameters of tear break-up time, meibomian gland dysfunction and corneal staining, according to researchers.

In this study, 109 eyes of 57 patients underwent thermal pulsation therapy (LipiFlow, TearScience) for the treatment of dry eye symptoms after laser vision correction.
