It’s the first and only FDA-approved Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL) that is scientifically proven to alleviate dry eye syndrome. It uses light pulses to reduce inflammation and unclog blocked meibomian glands, which are responsible for releasing oils that lubricate the tear film.

Ask Our Doctor's a Question
What can I expect during a dry eye exam?
During a dry eye exam, you can expect one of our eye doctors to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine the underlying cause of your dry eyes. They may measure the quantity and quality of your tears, examine the surface of your eyes, and assess how well your tear ducts are functioning. Your medical history and the medications you are currently taking will also be considered as potential contributing factors.
What are the typical treatments for dry eyes?
The treatment for dry eyes will vary, depending on the severity and root cause of your condition. Treatments can include prescription eye drops or ointments to lubricate your eyes and reduce inflammation, warm compresses, herbal supplements, good eyelid hygiene, and OptiLight by Lumenis.
How can I avoid dry eyes?
Staying hydrated can help prevent dry eyes. Reducing screen time and practicing the 20-20-20 rule (looking away from the screen every 20 minutes for 20 seconds at something 20 feet away) can also reduce eye strain and dryness. Also consider using a humidifier in dry environments, wearing protective eyewear in windy or dusty conditions, and incorporating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids into your diet to support healthy tear production.
