Find Relief from Dry Eyes
Do your eyes ever feel like they’re on fire? If so, you might be experiencing dry eye disease. Dry eye can occur when your eyes don’t produce enough lubrication or when your tears evaporate too quickly.

What’s Causing My Dry Eyes?
Dry eye is a common condition and can include symptoms like redness, stinging, and blurred vision.
One of the most common causes of dry eye, meibomian gland dysfunction, can occur when the glands that produce oil for your tears become clogged or damaged.
Factors like dry and windy weather, hormonal changes, medications, medical conditions, and genetics can all contribute to dry eyes.
Our Dry Eye Treatments
We offer a range of treatment options to address your individual dry eye needs.
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses light therapy to target the underlying causes of dry eyes, including inflammation and meibomian gland dysfunction.
IPL works by using a handheld device to deliver pulses of intense light energy to the area around your eyes, encouraging oil production and improving tear film quality.
Meibomian Gland Expression
Meibomian gland expression is a noninvasive procedure that targets meibomian gland dysfunction.
During the procedure, your optometrist uses a specialized device to apply gentle pressure to your eyelids, massaging and squeezing the meibomian glands to help clear blockages.
Eyelid cleansers are gentle and effective products designed to remove debris, bacteria, and excess oil from your eyelids, improving tear film quality and reducing the inflammation that can cause dry eyes.
Incorporating eyelid cleansers and sprays into your daily routine can help reduce the frequency and severity of your dry eye symptoms.
