Our Dry Eye Doctor Can Help!

Our optometrist specializes in diagnosing and treating chronic dry eye syndrome. We will assess your condition to determine the cause of your dry eyes and then find the best solution to relieve your symptoms and restore comfort to your precious eyes.

Based on your condition and the possible causes, our treatment may involve one of the following courses of action:

  • Finding the right brand and formulation of artificial tears or prescription eye drops.
  • Prescribing Steroid Eye Drops, Antibiotics or Lubricant Inserts.
  • Inserting Punctal Plugs—to plug the tear drainage ducts and keep the tear film intact on the surface of eye.
  • Warm compress therapy and meibomian gland expression, an in-office procedure that opensblocked meibomian glands which produce essential oils to lubricate the eyes.
  • Medication adjustments.
  • Adjusting your contact lens prescription or reducing wear during treatment.
