Treatment Plans For Dry Eyes

Millions of Americans suffer from dry eyes. Dry eyes can cause contact lenses to feel uncomfortable and even cause vision fluctuations. Dry eye syndrome, also known as ocular surface disease may be caused by lack of tear production, tear quality, infection or inflammation. Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include redness, itching, burning, grittiness, discharge, light sensitivity, fluctuating vision, halos, excessive tearing up, or tired eyes at the end of the day.

If lubricating drops are insufficient, a customized treatment may be effective.  There are many options for treating dry eyes such as: blinking exercises, warm compresses, nightly lid wipes, nutritional supplements, ointments, rewetting drops, humidifier use, drinking more water, sleeping mask, prescription medication, procedures and imaging to detect gland dysfunction, and therapies to improve Meibomian gland function. Schedule an appointment today to meet with a doctor about your dry eyes and customize a treatment plan.

The Latest Technology

The most common cause of dry eyes is excessive evaporation of tears. This is caused by obstruction or malfunction of the Meibomian glands in the eyelids which are responsible for producing the lipid layer of the tears. We have the latest technology to provide therapy for Meibomian gland problems.

  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
    IPL therapy uses thermal pulses of a special polychromatic light applied to the areas around the cheekbones. This helps stimulate contraction of the Meibomian glands which increases the flow of lipids, reducing the evaporation of tears.
  • Light Modulation (LLLT) Therapy
    LLLT therapy involves the emission of a particular light with a certain wavelength which triggers endogenous warming of the eyelids.This treatment helps stabilize the flow of lipids from the Meibomian glands.
