What Is Dry Eye Therapy?

Dry eye therapy is a variety of management strategies available to alleviate dry eye. Dryness is caused by your eye’s inability to produce enough high-quality tears. The dry eye therapies we offer can help treat the root cause of dry eyes and alleviate symptoms like irritation, burning, and soreness.

Therapies We Offer

No two cases of dry eyes are the same, which is why we customize our dry eye treatment plans. Depending on the cause of your dry eyes and your lifestyle, we can recommend a dry eye therapy to suit your situation.

Every dry eye therapy session begins with a complete dry eye assessment. Because there are various underlying causes of dry eyes, we evaluate your eyes to get a better understanding of what’s causing your symptoms and how to treat them. Some of the causes we look for include:

  • Tear film deficiencies
  • Disease of the meibomian glands
  • Blepharitis
  • Defects that affect the eyelid or shape of the eye
  • Certain medications or systemic conditions

After determining the underlying cause, we can more effectively relieve your dry eyes.

There are various lifestyle changes that can help alleviate dry eyes, including nutritional supplementation. A diet containing omega 3 fatty acids has been found to reduce dry eye symptoms by enhancing tear quality. For example, cold water fish like salmon is high in omega 3’s. We can also recommend a nutritional supplement like fish oil pills to help your dry eyes.

MiBoFlow is a specialized in-office treatment for dry eyes due to meibomian gland dysfunction. A warm compress and gel are applied to the eyelid for a therapeutic treatment that treats the underlying cause of dry eyes. The heat and gentle pressure dissolve and express blockages in the meibomian glands, restoring tear production. The treatment only takes 10 to 15 minutes.

TearCare® is an open-eye in office procedure designed to target the underlying cause of evaporative dry eye. By applying heat directly to the eyelid TearCare melts the blockage within your meibomian glands.
