What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a prevalent eye condition that can arise due to multiple factors, resulting in insufficient tears for eye hydration and comfort.

If left untreated, dry eye could lead to more significant problems in the future—including damage to the eye. We can address these symptoms with the help of personalized strategies we develop based on your needs.

Common Dry Eye Symptoms

If you struggle with dry eye, you might experience symptoms like:

  • Burning sensations
  • Blurry vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Redness
  • Irritation

Dry Eye Risk Factors

There are several reasons why you might be at a higher risk of experiencing dry eyes. Some of the most prevalent risk factors are:

  • Certain health conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Environmental factors
  • Some medications, like antihistamines and decongestants
  • Genetics
  • Age

In-Office Dry Eye Treatments

Based on your symptoms, we can suggest a variety of in-office treatments to help alleviate your discomfort. 

In certain situations, we may even complement these approaches with at-home strategies.

OptiLight by Lumenis

Punctal plugs are tiny plugs inserted into your tear ducts to reduce tear drainage.

They can help your eyes retain moisture and help alleviate dry eye symptoms. Depending on the plug type, they can be either temporary or permanent solutions.

Amniotic membranes serve as natural tissues applied to the eye for the management of dry eye symptoms.
They can act as a barrier to protect the eyes’ surface from irritation and inflammation and promote the healing of damage caused by dry eye.

At-Home Dry Eye Strategies

We have a variety of at-home strategies that can be recommended to help manage dry eye symptoms. 

These methods can work in conjunction with our in-office techniques, helping you achieve the relief you’re seeking.

Bruder Masks

Bruder masks offer a distinct approach to treating dry eye that utilizes warming masks to provide soothing relief while supporting tear production.

Blephadex wipes can be an effective solution for cleansing bacteria, debris, and oil in and around the eyelid area.

Moreover, they may also help to reduce inflammation and alleviate irritation caused by dry eye disease.

Taking care of your eyelids helps lower the risk of problems like meibomian gland dysfunction and blepharitis, which can cause dry eye symptoms.

Our range of products, such as Pure & Clean eyelid cleansers, can help manage these issues. Reach out to our team for further information on these products and to find the one that suits your needs.
