Pioneering Diagnosis of Dry Eyes Symptoms and Treatment Options

Dry eye disease can present discomfort and vision disturbances, impacting daily life. Insufficient tear production or poor tear quality can lead to dryness, irritation, and potential damage to the ocular surface.

  • Persistent dryness or grittiness in the eyes
  • Excessive tearing as a compensatory response
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Blurred or fluctuating vision
  • Sensitivity to light

Dry eye is often a symptom of an underlying issue, such as neurotrophic keratitis, Sjogren’s syndrome, or an autoimmune issue. Discover advanced treatments at Toyos Clinic, including those invented by Dr. Rolando Toyos:

  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): A cutting-edge treatment to address underlying causes of dry eye.
  • Quantum Light Technology (The Q): Empowering patients with a portable solution for on-the-go relief.
  • Dry Eye Measuring Devices: Precision tools to assess and monitor dry eye conditions for personalized care.


With over 25 years of initial and ongoing contributions to research in dry eye,  IPL treatments for dry eye were FDA approved in the spring of 2021 to treat the signs and symptoms of dry eye. IPL machines use visible and infrared light to kill Demodex, reduce inflammation, close abnormal lid margin blood vessels, and help return meibomian glands to their natural state. Dr. Rolando Toyos discovered and perfected the IPL treatment for dry eye. He also developed the Toyos Protocol used to treat dry eye by doctors and other researchers around the world - the ONLY peer-reviewed published IPL protocol.  Doctors can be trained and certified at the Toyos Centers of Excellence to offer their patients this revolutionary treatment.

The Q

The Q is light technology that patients can utilize at home and on the go called, The Q, short for the Quantum.  The Q complements the in office IPL treatments and can be used to extend time between IPL treatments, to treat dry eye flares and to maintain IPL results.

Safe enough to use every day on every skin type, the Q offers low energy light at a safe wavelength to stimulate the glands that produce our tears with a fraction of the energy used for in office IPL treatments.  This can also be used to treat or prevent styes.
