Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye.
Dry eyes are very common, and dry eye syndrome is a major reason for visits to the eye doctor.
Have you been frustrated with the need for frequent eye drop use in your attempt to control your symptoms?
At Ojas Eye Hospital, we offer a revolutionary treatment using Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) to get rid of the root cause of your dry, red, fatigued and burning eyes and help your eyes feel calm and clear – while reducing your dependency on eye drops.
Optimal Pulse Technology is an excellent technology for treating eye lid inflammation. OPT is selectively absorbed in the hemoglobin of abnormal blood vessels, and destroys them by thrombolysis. A major source of inflammation threatening the eyelids is then removed.
During the procedure, a strategic level of light pulses is administered to penetrate your skin and target the root cause of the inflammation. As the Optimal Pulse Technology treatment treats your overall skin appearance, your eyelid inflammation is treated and improved as well. OPT procedures are highly effective, gentle and safe.
This treatment is safe, with no discomfort or downtime, and will improve the comfort of your eyes and the clarity of your vision.
You might experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to your skin, but the treatment is gentle and you should not feel uncomfortable. Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes. Depending upon the severity of your condition, an additional procedure to remove a portion of your Meibomian glands, to accelerate your skin and eyelid healing process, may be recommended.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness and discomfort in the treated areas, which usually disappears within a few hours. Most patients resume their daily activities the same day. Sunlight should be avoided for a few days following the treatment and sun screen should be used.
For optimal results, 5 sessions are typically recommended, with 3-4 weeks in between. Maintenance treatments, usually once every 6-12 months, are also recommended for optimal long-term results.
