At our practice, we are proud to offer the latest light therapy technologies for treating dry eye disease. Our state-of-the-art OptiLight device can help improve the quality of your vision by restoring moisture to your eyes.

What Is The Optilight?

The OptiLight is the only FDA-approved light therapy (IPL) for managing dry eye disease due to MGD (meibomian gland deficiency). The OptiLight uses precise broad-spectrum light to address signs of dry eye disease caused by MGD, the most common cause of dry eye. The OptiLight is a precise and comfortable dry eye procedure developed to reach the delicate contours below the eye and reduce inflammation.


  • Reduces inflammatory mediators
  • Improves tear breakup time
  • Alleviates abnormal blood vessels
  • Restores Meibomian glands
  • Decreases Demodex


The treatment is facilitated in 4 sessions spaced 2–4 weeks apart; each session only takes 10–15 minutes. During treatment, your doctor will cover your eyes with a protective shield and apply a thin layer of gel on the treatment area. Then, the OptiLight is applied to the skin below the eyes. The treatment is non-invasive, you’ll feel a warm sensation of light with minimal discomfort. Most patients can return to regular activities after treatment and expect to see improvement after the 2nd or 3rd session.
