How do we treat dry eye?
Since dry eye can be the result of many different causes, our doctors use a variety of treatments to offer personalized care for each patient.
One cause of dry eye is blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids). Overgrowth of bacteria on eyelids causes this inflammation and impacts the quality of tears. Most people require a professional to properly manage this problem, and fortunately, blepharitis can be successfully treated by our optometrists in most cases.
BlephEx is a painless in-office procedure that removes the bacterial biofilm that accumulates on eyelids and eyelashes in only 6-8 minutes and helps your eyes produce proper tears again.
Low Light Level Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT is a unique technology of photobiomodulation used for many years in various forms of medicine. The emission of LED light at a particular wavelength triggers an endogenous heating of the eyelids. This treatment facilitates production and stimulation of the oil component released from the Meibomian glands in the tear film, thus stabilizing the outer-lipid layer of the tears, reducing the signs and symptoms of dry eyes.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
