Reclaim Comfort in Your Vision

Dry eyes is a common condition but nonetheless can cause serious discomfort without implementing any treatments. Dry eyes can happen because of a plethora of different reasons, but the first step to treating your symptoms will be to book an appointment.

Some causes include:

  • Medications
  • Ageing
  • Medical conditions
  • Tear gland damage
  • Tear evaporation
  • Digital eye strain
  • Allergies
  • Eyelid irritation and inflammation

Dry Eye Symptoms

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you might be suffering from dry eyes.

  • Overly watery eyes
  • Blurred vision or eye fatigue
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Stringy mucus around your eyes

Dry Eye Evaluation

The optometrist will use different tests and instruments to evaluate the cause of your dry eyes. The tests and instruments that are used in the office include the iPen, InflammaDry and the Oculus Keratograph.

Treatment Options

Bacteria, biofilm, and other problematic blockages can build up on the edges of your eyelids, inhibiting your meibomian gland’s ability to produce the oil for your tear film. As a result, these blockages can inflame your eyelids, causing a condition known as blepharitis.

BlephExTM is a device that uses a micro-sponge to gently cleanse the edges of your eyelids to remove bacteria and debris that have collected along your lidline, treating blepharitis symptoms.

BlephExTM can also help clean your eyelashes if you’re experiencing discomfort with your eyelash extensions.
