Dry Eye Treatments
There are many treatments available to treat dry eye. Our knowledgeable team can diagnose and treat your dry eye for lasting relief.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
The TearCare System is a treatment that uses localized heat therapy to address evaporative dry eye disease. Meibomian gland dysfunction is a common cause of dry eye. TearCare is used in conjunction with gland expression to release oil blockages and rehydrate the eyes.
Lid wipes are sanitary wipes used to cleanse your eyelids of debris and bacteria. Sometimes, this debris can cause blockages that contribute to dry eye symptoms. Lid wipes can be used to help keep your eyes clean and clear of blocking debris.
Debridement & Expression
Performing eyelid debridement and meibomian gland expression can help alleviate dry eye symptoms. Your doctor will gently remove any debris from the eyelid with cleansing tools, and then perform gland expression to release trapped oils. While this solution is temporary, it can be very effective in managing dry eye.
Amniotic membranes are a way of providing hydration to the front surface of the eye. Using stem cell tissues, the membrane is applied as a short-term graft over the cornea. This helps create a nourishing layer over the eye that helps prevent dryness, bacteria entering the eye, and corneal damage.
Punctal plugs are small devices placed in the tear duct to block some of the puncta, which are tiny openings that allow tears to drain from your eyes. These plugs prevent fluid from draining, keeping the eye hydrated and comfortable.
