Dry Eye Disease

Dry eye disease occurs when your tears don’t adequately keep your eyes moisturized. This can be caused when your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or produce poor quality tears. 

The signs and symptoms of dry eye include:

  • Stinging or scratchy sensation
  • Light sensitivity
  • Foreign body sensation
  • Trouble wearing contact lenses
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye redness
  • Excessive eye watering
  • Stringy mucus around the eyes

Dry Eye Treatment Options

Treating your dry eyes is essential to avoid further complications such as eye infections or damage to the eye’s surface. After your optometrist thoroughly assesses your eyes, and goes over your medical history and lifestyle, they will create a personalized treatment plan that could include in-office or at-home solutions.

OptiLight intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is an innovative system used to target the symptoms of dry eye due to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). 

OptiLight IPL is a gentle and noninvasive treatment applied to the skin below the eyes. You may experience a warm sensation where the light is applied. 

This treatment decreases inflammation and improves the function of the meibomian glands to help ensure your tears don’t evaporate too quickly.

Artificials tears are eye drops used to help lubricate your eyes and maintain moisture to alleviate your uncomfortable dry eye symptoms. Your eye doctor will recommend a suitable brand for your unique needs and go over how to use them.

The gentle heat from a warm compress can help improve the function of the meibomian glands, which is important for keeping your tear film stable and slowing the rate of tear evaporation. When your tear film is stable, your tears can rid your eyes of debris and bacteria efficiently and effectively.
