Vision Veritas is excited to announce the addition of a revolutionary new in-office treatment for dry eyes. Optilight IPL by Lumenis is a ground-breaking light-based treatment for certain types of dry eyes. Dry Eye Syndrome is an extremely common condition which affects an estimated 49 million people. Dry eyes symptoms can include redness, burning, grittiness, excessive tearing, and fluctuations in vision. It is also one of the most common reasons that patients drop out of contact lenses. The Optilight patented pulse light technology delivers precise and controlled treatment that can reduce the vicious cycle of inflammation that is associated with Dry Eye Disease.
For best results, patients must go through a serious of 4 treatments, separated by approximately 2-3 weeks in between treatments. Patient usually start noticing a difference after the 3rd treatment. A touch-up treatment at 6 or 12 months after the initial series is complete may be beneficial for some patients. The in-office procedure only takes approximately 30 minutes. Recent sun exposure and certain medications, as well as some underlying medical conditions, may prevent patients from being ideal candidates so it is important to talk to your doctor about your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
“We are so excited to offer our patients this new, cutting-edge technology for their dry eye symptoms. It is such a good feeling to be able to offer something that can help treat the underlying cause of their symptoms and get patients back to looking and feeling their best.” states Dr Olivia Carleo.
