Do you suffer from dry, itchy, red or burning eyes?

Dry Eye Disease (DED) is one of the most common conditions seen by eye care professionals. In fact, 86% of Dry Eye cases are caused by MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction)¹. The disease has a significant impact on the quality of life, with symptoms such as foreign body sensation, pain, blurry vision, dry or watery eyes. Optima IPL is a revolutionary treatment that effectively breaks the dry eye vicious cycle – providing long lasting results.

“A few years ago, my eyes were constantly tearing up. I spent a small fortune trying several different eye drops– none of them worked. I finally went to a medical practitioner who told me about Optima IPL treatment. Love it!”

– Anna Heata Mosconi

“As a pilot, having dry, irritated eyes is unacceptable. Drops provided a temporary solution but putting them in my eyes all day was a big inconvenience. After a few treatments with Lumenis Optima IPL, my vision was back to normal. I’ve recommended the treatment to all my fellow workers who suffer from the same problem.”

– Josh Bauer, Commercial Pilot
