What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a condition where your eyes lack sufficient lubrication due to inadequate tear production and fast tear evaporation. Look out for these common symptoms:

  • Persistent dryness
  • Burning sensation
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision

What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye occurs when tears fail to provide adequate moisture. Common causes include aging, certain medications, and environmental factors like wind or dry climate. Prolonged screen use, a prominent risk factor, can lead to digital eye strain.

Another causative factor, meibomian gland dysfunction, results from clogged oil glands in the eyelids, which can decrease tear quality and exacerbate dry eye symptoms.

Assessing Dry Eye with Today’s Technology

At Advanced Eyecare Optometry, the Antares system by Lumenis allows us to perform detailed meibography, assessing your meibomian glands’ structure for any issues.

This technology also helps with precise corneal topography, crucial for detecting vision-affecting irregularities and assessing the severity of dry eye. This approach offers tailored treatments to our patients, helping us better understand your specific eye health needs.

In-Office Dry Eye Treatments

Although dry eye cannot be fully cured, our in-office treatments can help significantly alleviate severe symptoms, enhancing your overall comfort and vision. Seeking professional help is key to managing and mitigating the impact of dry eye on your daily life.

IPL Therapy

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a light-based therapy that can offer notable success in improving tear quality and reducing inflammation, contributing to more visual comfort for those dealing with dry eye.

TearCare treatment is a personalized treatment that includes gentle heat application to the eyes. We follow each of these treatments with manual meibomian gland expression to aid in dry eye relief and long-term management of the condition.

The amniotic membrane, when used in dry eye treatment, offers a promising solution. With its anti-inflammatory properties and rich nutrient content, it aids in reducing ocular surface inflammation and promoting healing.

Punctal plugs are designed to conserve natural tears, providing lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and improving overall eye comfort. This is done by inserting a small blocking device into the tear duct to prevent tear drainage.

Dry Eye Treatments You Can Take Home

Living with persistent dry eyes can be uncomfortable, but there are numerous effective at-home treatments available to alleviate symptoms and promote eye comfort. These treatments can not only offer relief but also contribute to the overall maintenance of eye health. Incorporating these treatments into your daily routine can help to improve your quality of life.

Medicated Eye Drops
