OptiLight is a groundbreaking, light-based treatment. It is the first and only light treatment FDA approved for management of dry eye disease, a very common condition that causes dry, gritty eyes and fluctuating vision for an estimated 49 million Americans.1 Lumenis’ patented, innovative Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) offers targeted, uniform, precise, and controlled treatment that safely and effectively breaks the vicious cycle of inflammation associated with dry eye disease.
“Dry eye disease is highly prevalent and difficult to manage, and traditional treatments like warm compresses and artificial tears treat the symptoms but not the underlying pathology,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “OptiLight is leading a revolution in managing dry eye disease with ‘breakthrough’ technology that allows doctors to treat patients quickly, in-office. With broad potential for tens of millions with dry eye disease, OptiLight stands out from the crowd to become our 2022 Best New Technology Solution for Ophthalmology.”
Lumenis introduced OptiLight in May 2021 and recently launched a national media campaign featuring singer-songwriter and actress Mandy Moore (This Is Us) to increase awareness for dry eye disease and encourage people who might be suffering from this condition to seek out a physician who offers OptiLight (www.TreatMyDryEye.com).
“We’re grateful to MedTech for honoring OptiLight for its innovation and impact in eye care,” said Lumenis CEO Tzipi Ozer-Armon. “Lumenis is committed to raising the bar for patients’ health by providing cutting-edge solutions and treatment innovations. As the only light-based treatment for dry eye disease, OptiLight has the power to elevate dry eye management and improve health and quality of life for millions of people around the world.”
