Dry Eye Treatments

Relief is in Sight!

What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to a range of symptoms, including:

  • Itching and Redness: Constantly rubbing your eyes? That might be a sign of dry eye.
  • Blurry Vision: Dry eyes can make focusing difficult, leading to occasional blurriness.
  • Sensitivity to Light: Bright lights becoming a challenge? Dry eye may be the culprit.

What are Common Treatment Options?

Artificial Tears

Artificial tears are like a refreshing drink for your eyes. They come in various formulations to mimic natural tears, providing immediate relief from dryness and irritation. Convenient and easy to use, these over-the-counter drops can be a game-changer in your battle against dry eyes.

Prescription Eye Drops: Targeted Relief

We may recommend prescription eye drops for more severe cases of dry eyes. These specialized formulations address the underlying causes of dry eye, promoting long-lasting relief and improved eye health.

Lifestyle Changes: Holistic Approaches

Simple lifestyle adjustments can contribute significantly to managing dry eyes. Staying hydrated, taking breaks during screen time, and incorporating omega-3 fatty acids into your diet are small changes that can dramatically impact your eye health.

LipiFlow® Treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a common contributor to dry eyes. LipiFlow® is a revolutionary treatment designed to tackle MGD by applying targeted heat and pressure to the eyelids, clearing blocked glands, and restoring a healthy balance of oils in your tears.

Punctal Plugs: Keeping Tears in Place

If your tears evaporate too quickly, punctual plugs may be the solution. These tiny devices are inserted into the tear ducts, reducing tear drainage and helping to maintain moisture on the eye’s surface.
