WHAT IS OPTILIGHT?

OptiLight by Lumenis is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done in the area around the eyes to manage dry eye disease while providing many aesthetic benefits. It is the first and only IPL FDA-approved treatment for dry eye management

HOW DOES OPTILIGHT WORK?

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

This application can significantly relieve dry eye indicators and has a multifaceted effect. 

Some of the benefits can include:

  • Increasing tear break-up time
  • Reducing the amount of Demodex mites and bacteria living around your eyes
  • Improving meibomian gland functionality
  • Eliminating blood vessels that contribute to inflammation
  • Stimulating the skin to naturally regenerate while boosting collagen production
  • Minimizing the appearance of age spots, sun spots, acne scars, rosacea, and more

Increasing Tear Break-Up Time

Reducing the Amount of Demodex Mites & Bacteria Living Around Your Eyes

Eliminating Blood Vessels that Contribute to Inflammation

Improving Meibomian Gland Functionality

WHAT TO EXPECT?

OptiLight typically involves a series of 4 treatments spaced 2–4 weeks apart. Each session takes about 30 minutes. Once your session is over, you can immediately get back to your day. 

During your appointment, an eye care professional will apply coupling gel to the treatment areas. They will also cover your eyes with protective shields. 

Next, light pulses are focused on the skin around your eyes. You may feel warmth or heat on your skin, but most patients experience minimal sensation.

During the course of the treatments, OptiLight is commonly followed up with meibomian gland expression with a Systane® iLux® treatment.

Most patients will start to notice an improvement in their dry eyes after 4 treatments. They will also appreciate many of the added benefits such as increased collagen production and reduction of age spots, sun spots, acne scars, rosacea, and more.

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 the evaporative dry eye or meibomian gland dysfunction)
  • Have a history of keloid scarring
  • Have severe scarring around your eyes

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