What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a common problem. It can be long-lasting and worsen over time. Although feeling dryness can be an irritating sensation, dry eye can affect your vision and eye health. The problem is caused by tear quality; either too few tears or tears that are missing necessary components

When we blink, our eyelids spread a tear film to lubricate our eyes. Our tears reduce the risk of infection, keep the surface of our eye smooth, and clean away foreign matter (including dust and stray eyelashes). Then, excess tears empty into drainage ducts in the corners of our eyes. 

When something gets in the way of tear production or drainage, we can experience dry eye.

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

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.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is an effective, non-surgical, doctor-supervised treatment that retrains the brain and eyes to work together more efficiently. Rather than compensate for vision problems, vision therapy aims to treat and correct the visual system itself. Discover how we can help you or your child overcome vision problems and build a greater sense of confidence.
