OptiLight by Lumenis for Dry Eye

Book an Appointment

What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye disease is a common eye condition that affects millions of Americans. Dry eye is characterized by the eye’s inability to produce enough tears or the right quality of tears to keep the eyes properly hydrated.

This chronic condition can have a significant impact on your quality of life, causing a foreign body sensation in your eyes, pain, blurry vision, and dry or watery eyes. Untreated, it can even lead to further eye-health complications. As part of our commitment to provide the very best in therapeutic options, we’re proud to offer OptiLight by Lumenis to our patients, specially designed for dry eye management.

What Is OptiLight by Lumenis?

OptiLight by Lumenis is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done in the area below the eyes to manage dry eye. The first and only IPL FDA-approved for dry eye management.

The treatment is safe, gentle, and backed by more than 20 clinical studies.

How Does It Work?

OptiLight uses precise pulses of light to reduce the inflammation that is typically associated with dry eye disease, improve tear break-up time, and increase meibomian gland functionality.

This application can significantly relieve dry eye indicators and has a multi-factorial effect, including:

  • Increasing tear break-up time
  • Reducing the amount of Demodex mites and bacteria living around your eyes
  • Eliminating blood vessels that contribute to inflammation
  • Improving meibomian gland functionality

What to Expect?

We’ll perform a complete assessment of your ocular health to determine if OptiLight is the right choice for you. This includes reviewing your medical and family history, along with any medications you’re currently taking.

 

Each OptiLight treatment should take about 10 to 15 minutes. As part of your customized treatment plan, we’ll review how many appointments you’ll need and when you should come in for treatment.

Our goal is to help you achieve healthy, comfortable eyes. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Will the OptiLight by Lumenis Work for Me?

While OptiLight by Lumenis is an effective dry eye management solution, we want to make sure it’s right for you. We do not recommend this treatment if you:

  • Suffer from aqueous deficiency dry eye (rather than evaporative dry eye or meibomian gland dysfunction)
  • Have a history of keloid scarring
  • Have severe scarring around your eyes

Ultimately, your doctor is the only person who can determine whether this option is right for you. During your next appointment, ask us if you are a good candidate for OptiLight by Lumenis.

Say goodbye to dry eye sooner. Contact us to book your consultation today.
