Understanding Dry Eye

Dry eyes extend beyond mere discomfort and, if untreated, can lead to corneal damage. Tear production, consisting of 3 layers—the oily outer layer, watery middle layer, and inner mucus layer—plays a pivotal role in preventing dry eye. 

Our dry eye assessment delves into these factors to identify the root cause of your symptoms and determine an appropriate course of action.

Common Dry Eye Symptoms

Look out for these signs and symptoms that may indicate dry eye:

  • Eye fatigue
  • Red eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Gritty or foreign body sensation
  • Stringy discharge
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Increased sensitivity to glare
  • Eye discomfort
  • Excessively watery eyes

Our comprehensive dry eye assessment considers all these symptoms to form a treatment that suits your individual needs.

Digital Eye Strain & Dry Eye

Digital eye strain and dry eye disease often intertwine due to our screen-intensive lifestyles. Prolonged screen use can elevate the risk of these eye-related issues. Reduced blink rates during digital tasks, leading to increased tear evaporation and subsequent dry eye, are common consequences. 

Digital eye strain and dry eye can both put a dent in your productivity. Our team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and help you find relief.

Our Dry Eye Assessment & Quiz

We offer comprehensive dry eye assessments to identify the diverse root causes of dry eye and create a personalized treatment plan. Our team conducts various diagnostic tests during the assessment, determining the optimal course of action for your unique needs. 

If you’re experiencing dry and irritated eyes, take our dry eye pre-screening quiz to explore whether dry eyes might be the cause.

Understanding MGD

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a prevalent condition affecting the meibomian glands responsible for producing the oil layer of the tear film. When these glands become clogged or inflamed, they fail to produce sufficient oil, leading to quick tear evaporation and dry eye symptoms.
