OptiLight Lumenis IPL: A Breakthrough Solution for Dry Eye
Our commitment to enhancing your eye health and visual well-being has led us to introduce the OptiLight Lumenis Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system — an innovative solution designed to address the root cause of dry eye.
What is OptiLight by Lumenis IPL?
OptiLight by Lumenis is a state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system specifically designed for dry eye syndrome. This FDA-approved treatment harnesses the power of broad-spectrum light, delivering targeted energy pulses to address the root cause of dry eye — meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). It provides a non-invasive and highly effective solution, offering many benefits and long-term relief.
Revolutionizing Dry Eye Treatment: How OptiLight IPL Works
Meibomian Gland Stimulation: MGD causes over 80% of dry eye cases. MGD occurs when the oil glands that release the oil part of the tears become clogged by old, dry oil. OptiLight IPL stimulates the meibomian glands, enhancing the production of the oil layer of tears. This process helps prevent rapid evaporation and produces a healthier tear film.
Targeted Light Energy: OptiLight IPL emits gentle yet precise pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin around the eyes without causing harm. This targeted approach ensures the glands are activated, promoting optimal functionality without compromising the delicate structures of the surrounding tissues or the patient’s comfort.
Reduction of Inflammation: OptiLight IPL effectively addresses eyelid inflammation, a common symptom of MGD and dry eye. The treatment contributes to improved eye comfort and reduced symptoms by minimizing inflammation.
Key Benefits of OptiLight Lumenis IPL
Non-Invasive and Painless: OptiLight IPL treatments involve no incisions or needles. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, and there’s no need for extended recovery periods.
Personalized Treatment Plans: Every patient is unique, and OptiLight IPL allows personalized treatment plans. Whether you're dealing with dry eye, MGD, or eyelid inflammation, our experienced team tailors the treatment to address your concerns.
Quick and Convenient: OptiLight IPL sessions are quick and convenient, making it an ideal choice for individuals with busy lifestyles. The efficiency of the treatment ensures minimal disruption to your daily routine, meaning you can get up and go right after your session.

Experience the Lucent Difference: Your OptiLight IPL Journey
Step 1 — Consultation and Evaluation: Start your OptiLight IPL journey with an initial consultation at our practice in Enid. During this session, our optometrist will assess your eye health, discuss your symptoms, and determine the most suitable course of action.
Step 2 — Customized Treatment Plan: We will craft a personalized treatment plan to address your eye concerns after the evaluation. This plan may include a series of OptiLight IPL sessions and lifestyle modifications designed to optimize your eye health and enhance visual comfort.
Step 3 — OptiLight IPL Sessions: The OptiLight IPL sessions involve the application of gentle pulses of light energy to the targeted areas around your eyes. Protective eyewear will first cover your eyes to shield them from the light pulses. Once the protective measures are in place, the device is carefully programmed to emit the precise wavelength of light needed for your specific condition. You may feel a mild warming sensation, but the procedure generally produces minimal discomfort, with each session taking only a matter of minutes.
Step 4 — Sustained Improvement: As OptiLight IPL stimulates meibomian gland function, reduces inflammation, and enhances overall eye health, many patients experience sustained symptom improvement.
