Get Long-Term Relief
Treat the Cause Not the Symptom!
Tired of using artificial tears that hardly make any impact on your dry eye troubles?
The problem might be deeper than you think. Take a look at our in-office dry eye treatments and speak with us to determine which long-term relief procedure is right for you.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
Each of your eyes has multiple glands known as meibomian glands that help produce quality tears that stick to the surface of your eye when you blink. When these glands get obstructed (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, or MGD), tears are no longer created with the necessary oils to hydrate your eyes, leading to itchy and uncomfortable symptoms. It’s estimated that
Rather than rely on artificial tears that may or may not give temporary relief, defeat your dry eyes at the source! Our practice’s IPL treatment targets the root cause of dry eye disease by utlizing pulses of broad-spectrum light to decrease inflammation and restore meibomian gland functionality. Your long-term dry eye solution is finally here, thanks to the Lumenis Optilight.
Radio Frequency (RF)
Similar to IPL treatment, radiofrequency therapy is an effective and safe way to unclog the meibomian glands and simultaneously reduce eye inflammation that could be contributing to your dry eye symptoms. RF treatment stimulates the production of collagen beneath the skin as a handheld device gently massages the areas around your eyes. The resulting collagen fibers are tighter and denser, leaving you with radiant, youthful skin.
When the meibomian glands in your eyes aren’t manufacturing the right oils for your tear film, your tears will evaporate too quickly for your eyes to properly utilize. This causes all the dry eye symptoms we’re used to feeling: redness, itchiness, and irritation.
Our practice’s TearCare treatment melts blockages in the meibomian glands. Unlike IPL treatment, TearCare directly heats your meibomian glands and is followed by eyelid massage to encourage their oils to flow freely once again. Dry eye relief has never felt so good!
We all know the value of routinely brushing our teeth, washing our hands, and cleaning our hair. But have you ever thought about hygiene for your eyelids?
Your eyelids and lashes keep the surface of your eyes hydrated with every blink, and catch dirt, dust, or debris in an effort to protect your eyes. These particles can build up on your lids and lashes, leading to burning and gritty sensation.
Unclean lashes are prime real estate for Demodex Mites to take up residence. These microscopic bugs live in hair follicles and can block the oil glands in your eyes,
Our BlephEx Treatment is a painless procedure that cleans away bacteria and buildup from your eyelid margin. The result is a med-spa experience that leaves your lids and lashes feeling fresh, clean, and healthy.
