Lumenis Optima IPL is a first-of-its-kind, drug free-drop free, light-based treatment that targets chronic inflammation, which is the root cause of dry eye disease. Optima IPL breaks the dry eye vicious cycle

It alleviates the abnormal blood vessels1,2 as well as reduces the level of pro-inflammatory mediators3,4 and Demodex5 mites that perpetuate the disease and stimulate this vicious cycle. As such, it effectively restores tear film osmolarity6 and gland morphology7 to normal function, providing long lasting effect.

The CFDA is based on a randomized controlled trial of 120 MGD patients, treatment with Optima IPL significantly improved TBUT, symptoms (SPEED), meibum quality and lid margin abnormalities in the study arm compared to control8. This study joins multiple prospective studies, which have demonstrated that the Optima IPL improves both signs and symptoms of dry eye disease due to MGD.
