U.S. Athletes Benefit from OptiLIGHT to Treat Dry Eye

With the Olympic summer’s Paris games less than a month away, two decorated professional athletes are sharing how Lumenis OptiLIGHT technology has improved their symptoms of dry eye disease so they can get back to living their lives—and “going for gold.”

 For years, beach volleyball legend Kerri Walsh Jennings battled dry eyes on and off the court before finding the right treatment. The three-time gold medalist in the summer games partnered with Lumenis and shared her experience with OptiLIGHT on Instagram.

Track and field star Chari Hawkins finished second in the heptathlon in late June at the U.S. Olympic trials and will be a first-time Olympian at age 33. It’s a dream she says she wouldn’t be able to continue pursuing without the help of OptiLIGHT. Now, she’s sharing her story with others as a Lumenis partner. She was even featured on a billboard in Times Square.

The 2024 U.S. team trials wrap up this weekend.

Lumenis light therapy is the first and only FDA-approved option for dry eye management. For more information on OptiLIGHT, visit https://lumenis.com/vision/products/optilight/.
