Eyedeal Presents New Optilight Service for Patients
Optilight with aesthetics by Lumenis is an additional service offering patients an alternative treatment for instant relief. Optilight is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done below the eye to treat dry eyes.

Instead of expensive eye surgery, ask our optometrists for Optilight as your treatment protocol. Backed by more than 20 clinical studies, Optilight by Lumenis is safe and gentle for eye care patients 22 years of age and above!
A New Solution for Dry Eye Disease
Imagine no longer depending on drugstore eye drops to feel relief from your dry eyes. Optilight ensures full treatment of what causes dry eye by aiming for the problem areas exactly causing it.
The new solution targets multi-areas of inflammation leading to dry eye disease like abnormal blood vessels, bacteria, mites, and other pro-inflammatory agents. Instead of masking it with eye drops, its light therapy is applied on the skin below the eyes, so it’s non-invasive. Sixteen million Americans deal with dry eyes, and Optilight specifically treats an area of inflammation as a better alternative to invasive surgery, like cataract surgery.
Optilight Treated in Sessions
The newest innovation for solving dry eye is not the end-all-be-all. Optilight requires multiple sessions, and Eyedeal Family Eye Care recommends maintenance treatment every 6-12 months for continued satisfaction in being free from dry eye disease.
The treatment protocol consists of 4 total sessions, 2-4 weeks apart.
- During treatment, your practitioner will cover your eyes with shields and apply a thin layer of coupling gel on the treatment area.
- During treatment, light is applied to the skin below the eyes; most patients report minimal discomfort.
- OptiLight is followed by meibomian gland expression.
- Each session takes only 10-15 minutes.
Patients usually report an improvement after the second or third session. After each session, there may be some slight redness in and around the eye area, but you’re safe to drive and go about your day immediately after an Optilight eye session.
