What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye is a common condition that affects the quality and quantity of tears your produce. With fewer or lower-quality tears, your eyes don’t have the hydration they need to stay comfortable, leading to discomfort.
Dry eye discomfort can affect virtually anyone and develop for numerous reasons. We can help you get to the root cause of your symptoms and find strategies that work best for you.
How to Tell If You Have Dry Eye
If you think you might have dry eye, a few indicators can help you know for sure. Common symptoms of dry eye include:
- Gritty or sandy sensation in the eyes
- Frequent rubbing of the eyes
- Redness or burning in the eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurry vision due to poor tears
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it could be a sign of dry eye. Please contact our team if you’re experiencing these symptoms—let us help you conquer dry eye!
How We Can Help
Our personalized approach to dry eye starts with examining your eyes and understanding what’s causing your symptoms. We take several tests and get a glimpse into your lifestyle to determine if there are any environmental causes of your symptoms.
Based on all this information, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan for you and your needs. Sometimes, lifestyle changes may be necessary to help promote more comfortable vision, but we’ll be happy to walk you through our recommendations when you visit us for help!
Meibomian Gland Expression
One of the first strategies we may use to help you manage dry eye is providing a meibomian gland expression.
During this treatment, we gently massage the oil-producing glands in your eyelids to help promote a more stable tear film.
Take-Home Dry Eye Kit
Our take-home dry eye kit is specially designed to help promote a stable and healthy tear film with the help of therapeutic masks and eye drops.
We’ll also follow up with you to see how your eyes adjust to the strategy and if we need to take additional steps.
OptiLight by Lumenis IPL Therapy
OptiLight by Lumenis is a light-based, noninvasive treatment done in the area below the eyes to manage dry eye. The first and only IPL FDA-approved for dry eye management.
