Dry Eye

Watery, Red or Itchy Eyes?

You may have dry eyes. People with dry eyes may experience irritated, gritty, scratchy or burning eyes; a feeling of something in their eyes; excess watering; and blurred vision. If you're struggling with redness, watery eyes, stringy mucus near your eye, blurry vision or an inability to tolerate contact lens wear for a normal length of time, we can help.

First-Step Treatment Options

  • Adding Tears: Mild cases of dry eyes can often be managed using over-the-counter artificial tear solutions. These can be used as often as needed to supplement natural tear production. Preservative-free artificial tear solutions are recommended because they contain fewer additives, which can further irritate the eyes. People with dry eyes that don't respond to artificial tears alone will need to take additional steps to treat their dry eyes.
  • Increasing Tear Production: We¬†can prescribe eye drops that increase tear production. Taking an omega-3 fatty acid nutritional supplement may also help.
  • Treating Inflammation: We might also recommend prescription eye drops or ointments, warm compresses and lid massage, or eyelid cleaners to help decrease inflammation around the surface of the eyes.

If you've tried these at-home treatments and still suffer from dry eyes, contact lens intolerance or dependence on artificial tears to make it through your day, we have multiple in-office treatment options that can help.

Ground-breaking Technology for Dry Eye

Envision

Envision is the new in-office standard revolutionizing procedures in delicate areas. This ground-breaking, nonsurgical device deploys multiple programmable modalities that work synergistically to deliver precision treatments:

Forma-I

We’re proud to offer Forma-I, a non-surgical FDA-approved technology that treats dry eye symptoms and meibomian gland dysfunction. This pain-free, drug-free treatment uses bi-polar radio frequency heat to “melt” and break up hardened oil in the meibomian gland and improve blood circulation around the eye. We can even treat the small areas of the upper and lower lids and the edges of the eyelids. The result is restored eye lubrication and comfort!

Lumecca-I

Boasting three times more energy than other IPLs, Lumecca-I is an Intense Pulse Light technology that is FDA-cleared to treat pigment and vascularity. A non-surgical, drug-free, zero-downtime solution, Lumecca-I is designed to address dry eye symptoms by reducing inflammation of the meibomian gland and osmolarity of the tear film. With its precision applicator, we’re able to target the sensitive periorbital area, reducing inflammation and stimulating collagen production.

Morpheus8

For patients looking for a smoother and more youthful appearance, Morpheus8 is a great option. This treatment is a combination of microneedling and radio-frequency heat to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which helps improve the texture and elasticity of the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and laxity. The treatment only takes 30 to 45 minutes, and most patients will see immediate results.

Envision’s small-size applicators and precise depth control allow for safe and highly efficacious procedures in the small, more delicate subdermal layers of the periorbital region. With Envision, practitioners deliver non-drug therapies to improve patient quality of life.
