After a thorough evaluation of your condition, we will recommend options for dry eye treatment. For mild cases of dry eye, you can often find relief using artificial tears. For more severe cases, we may prescribe eye drops or ointments, or recommend you see an ophthalmologist for eye surgery to alleviate symptoms.

Dry Eye Syndrome is caused by an imbalance of tears on the eye’s surface. Tears must be distributed efficiently, replaced or conserved in order to provide relief. When the eye surface dries out, the eye surface becomes rough like sand paper and feels gritty…it may even start to water as a response to the damage and these symptoms will usually last for hours or even days.

For the majority of people the most logical way to improve dry eyes is to artificially replace the tears and by doing so improve both quantity and quality. If you wait until your eyes hurt to put in tears, the surface damage is already there and you are too late. For tears to work, they must be put in regularly to keep the surface from drying out and getting damaged in the first place.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)

 

 

Blepharitis

An inflammation of the eyelids causing them to become red, swollen, itchy and irritated with clumping of scaly skin around the base of the eyelashes. It is a common eye disorder that can affect people of all ages.

Chalazia

Cysts that form in the eyelid due to a blocked oil gland. They can sometimes appear reddish in color but are not typically very painful. They generally form in the middle of the eyelid. A chalazion may occur following a sty or due to hardened oils blocking the gland. The blocked gland in question is usually the Meibomian gland but can also be the gland of Zeis.

Styes

A stye is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or pimple. A sty usually forms on the outside of your eyelid, but occasionally it can form on the inner part. A sty is caused by an infection of oil glands in the eyelid mainly caused by the bacterium staphylococcus.

MGD occurs due to a blockage or some other abnormality of the Meibomian glands where they don’t secrete enough oil into the tears. MGD is the leading cause of dry eye disease.

I-RELIEF™
HOT & COLD THERAPY EYE MASK WITH THERMABEADS™

For the relief of symptoms associated with blepharitis, dry eye disease, meibomian gland disease (MGD), styes and chalazia, as well as headaches, sinus pressure, tension, swelling and puffiness.

Eye care professionals recommend moist heat therapy as a form of supplementary treatment for people suffering from dry eyes and other conditions of the eyelid. Hot or cold compresses can provide immediate relief from discomfort, and consistent use over time can help increase blood circulation, stimulate lipid oil production and reduce tear evaporation, thereby improving overall ocular health.
