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 During Your OptiLight

OptiLight typically involves a series of 4 treatments set 2–4 weeks apart. Each session takes about 10–15 minutes. Once the session is over, you can immediately get back to your day. No waiting time!

During your appointment, an eye care professional will apply coupling gel to the treatment area. Then, they’ll cover your eyes with shields. 

Next, light pulses are focused on the skin below your eyes. You might feel warmth or heat on your skin, but otherwise, most patients experience minimal sensation, similar to that of a rubber band snap.

Finally, your eye doctor will remove the eye shields and remove the coupling gel.

OptiLight is also commonly followed up with meibomian gland expression.

Most patients notice improvements after just 2–3 treatments!

Will The OptiLight 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. Not everyone is a candidate. During your next appointment, ask us if you are a good candidate for OptiLight by Lumenis, or fill out the form below and we'll contact you to schedule a consult.
