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 dry eye treatment regimen designed specifically to manage your particular condition and help alleviate your symptoms.

Target The Underlying Cause Of Dry Eye


Meibomian Gland Dysfunction


Healthy Meibomian glands secrete oil with every blink. This oil, or lipid, serves as a critical component of a healthy tear film. When the glands are not functioning correctly, it is called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, or MGD. MGD is a leading cause of Dry Eye Disease and can be the source of symptoms such as burning, stinging, and itching. If left untreated, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction can worsen over time.
