Dry Eye Treatment

optilight

Dry eyes can affect your eyes in a multitude of ways, causing symptoms such as redness, itching and excessive tearing. We are happy to evaluate you for your dry eye symptoms. Dry eyes can be a result of decreased tears, decreased oils, inflammation in and around your eyes and lids, and allergies. 

Our best approach to treating dry eyes:

  1. Increase tears: lid treatment and punctal plugs, warm compress mask, Optilight
  2. Increase oils: meibomian gland evaluation and expression, medication, Optilight
  3. Reduce inflammation: Optilight

What is Optilight?

The first and only IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) procedure that is FDA-approved for dry eye management. 

This treatment has been shown in many studies to significantly relieve dry eye indicators and has a multi-factorial effect, including:

  • Improving oil production and volume of the meibomian glands
  • Increasing tear break-up time
  • Reducing bacterial load and demodex (mites) population living around your eyes
  • Eliminating superficial blood vessels that contribute to ocular inflammation
