Dry Eye Therapy

Treating Dry Eye With State of the Art Therapies

Employing the Latest in Eye Care Technologies

Dry eye treatment generally centers around improving lubrication. We are proud to utilize the latest in dry eye treatments, including Lipiflow. Designed to unblock meibomian glands, Lipiflow stimulates the secretion of oily lipids needed for healthy tear film.

Diagnosing The Cause of Your Dry Eye

Using Modern Diagnostic Equipment

Dry eyes occur when there is an improper amount of lubrication on the surface of the eyes. This can be due to your body not producing enough tears, or that the tears it does produce are thin and low quality, evaporating before they can provide proper lubrication. Regardless of the cause, this lack of lubrication is responsible for dry eye.
