How Dry Eyes Affect Your Vision

When eyes lack proper lubrication, vision can be affected in several ways. The dryness and irritation can cause blurred vision, making it challenging to focus on objects.

Additionally, a lack of tears can lead to increased sensitivity to light, making it uncomfortable to be in well-lit environments. Dry eyes can also contribute to eye fatigue, causing strain and reducing visual clarity.

Our Dry Eye Treatments

Our dry eye clinic features a variety of treatment options to help you find relief from your dry eye symptoms. 

Our experienced team is well-equipped, and we strive to address the underlying cause of your dry eyes. We will work with you to create a long-term strategy to keep your eyes as healthy and comfortable as possible.

Home-Based Therapies

Diagnosing the underlying cause of your dry eye is the first step in determining the best treatment based on your needs.

Common first-line home therapies include artificial tears, heat therapy (i.e. Bruder mask), Omega 3’s and eyelid hygiene.

If home-based therapies are not sufficient, more advanced treatment options may include prescription medication, scleral contact lenses, punctal plugs, ZEST treatments, Intense Pulse Light and Radiofrequency heat.

Icon IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an innovative treatment method that uses gentle pulses of light to improve dry eye symptoms. The treatment targets the underlying cause of dry eyes, helping reduce inflammation and stimulating the production of natural oils in the eyelids.

IPL therapy can enhance the quality and quantity of tears, providing relief from dryness and discomfort.

Tempsure Envi is an innovative and safe dry eye treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to deliver heat to the eyelids. The concentrated heat stimulates the oil glands in your eyelids, thereby improving the overall quality of the tear film.

By enhancing gland function, this treatment helps restore the natural balance of tear production and alleviate dry eye symptoms.

Zocular Eyelid System Treatment (ZEST) is an exciting in-office treatment that exfoliates and debrides the lid margins and lash lines with a special formula that helps fight inflammation and kills Demodex mites.

While at-home lid hygiene is important, some patients may benefit from a more intensive approach to eyelid maintenance.
