Lumenis OptiLight

OptiLight is an intense pulsed light (IPL) device designed for a consistent, precise, and controlled light-based treatment of signs of dry eye disease due to meibomian gland dysfunction.

Lumenis’ multi-centre, double-blinded, randomised controlled trial showed that Lumenis IPL with patented Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) significantly improved tear break-up time, meibum quality, and meibomian gland expressibility.1 The clinical trial joins a long list of studies of Lumenis’ IPL with OPT that have shown the same results, as well as reduction of inflammatory markers.2-5
