Dry Eye Management

Dry Eye Syndrome

Let’s talk about a common but often underestimated issue – dry eye syndrome. It’s more than just occasional discomfort; it’s a condition where your eyes might feel gritty, red, or even overly teary (yes, paradoxically!). When your eyes don’t produce enough tears or when those tears lack the right balance, it can impact your vision and overall eye health. 

Now, here’s the thing: it’s not just about the discomfort. Dry eyes can affect your daily life, making tasks like reading, working on a computer, or just enjoying a sunny day a bit challenging. The good news? There are plenty of options to treat this condition.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Picture this: your eyes have tiny Meibomian glands that release a special oil to keep your tears from evaporating too quickly. Now, with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), these glands get a bit finicky, and the oil they produce becomes thicker or even blocked. It’s like a tiny traffic jam on your eyelids! 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.

Effective Dry Eye Treatment

We’ve got an arsenal of treatments ready to help. From trusty artificial tears and warm compresses to more advanced options like LipiFlow and TearCare, the goal is to keep your eyes hydrated and happy. We’re here to create a personalized treatment plan that will help get you smiling again.


LipiFlow – the game-changer in the world of eye care. So, what’s the buzz all about? LipiFlow uses innovative technology designed to address the root cause of dry eye syndrome.  This cutting-edge procedure uses a combination of gentle heat and pressure to the oil-producing Meibomian glands in your eyelids, jumpstarting the flow of natural oils crucial for tear stability. It’s the ultimate reset button for your eyes, providing long-lasting relief from the discomfort of dry eyes.  

 Many patients experience a significant reduction in the symptoms associated with dry eyes. The improved function of the oil-producing glands leads to enhanced tear quality, increased tear film stability, and reduced evaporation. This, in turn, translates to greater overall eye comfort. It even increases the length of time that you can comfortably wear soft contacts, by up to 4 hours, making it an excellent treatment option.


TearCare is a unique software-controlled, wearable technology that provides targeted and adjustable heat to the eyelids.  It helps to open and clear the oil-producing Meibomian glands, which promotes a healthier tear film.  This leads to improved tear stability and reduced evaporation, allowing patients to commonly experience a significant reduction in the discomfort associated with dry eyes.
