Dry Eye Management
Dry eye syndrome is a chronic and often progressive condition affecting the surface of the eyes. Depending on its cause and severity, it may not be curable. In most cases, dry eyes can be managed successfully, usually resulting in noticeably greater eye comfort, fewer symptoms, and often, improved vision. Our doctors are experts at diagnosing and treating dry eyes and other ocular surface diseases. By utilizing the latest technology, we can develop a treatment regimen designed specifically to manage your particular condition and help alleviate your symptoms.
Target The Underlying Cause Of Dry Eye
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
MGD is the most common cause of dry eye disease, it occurs when the meibomian glands of the eyelid get clogged, producing less oil when we blink. Typically, the recommended treatment is applying warm compresses to the eyelids. Unfortunately, this cannot adequately treat the problem and restore normal functioning of meibomian glands.
Effective Dry Eye Treatment
TearCare is a software-controlled, wearable eyelid technology that provides targeted and adjustable thermal energy to the meibomian glands. This helps stimulate oil secretion and relieve the underlying cause of chronic dry eye with the blink of an eye.
Unlike other “closed-eye” energy based-systems, TearCare provides our patients with a personalized open-eye experience throughout the entire in-office procedure. Leveraging the full functionality of the blinking eye, proprietary SmartLid™ technology facilitates natural meibum expression when meibum is in its melted phase.
We now offer TearCare, an effective procedure for dry eye that offers relief!
