Dry Eye Disease

Don't Let Dry Eye Get You Down

Dry Eye Disease affects more than 30 million Americans, and impacts people of all ages. Treatment used to be limited to artificial tear drops, but while this can temporarily relieve symptoms it does not address the cause, and artificial tears do not slow or stop the progression of Dry Eye Disease. 

Our Dry Eye Center uses modern, cutting-edge techniques and technology to determine the unique causes and symptoms of your Dry Eye and tailor a treatment plan to your needs and budget. 

What Is Dry Eye Disease?

Each time you blink, tears are spread over the surface of your eye, washing away foreign matter and keeping your cornea smooth and clear, lubricating your eye, and protecting your eye from infection. With Dry Eye Disease, you may not produce enough tears, or your tears may evaporate too quickly to properly coat the surface of your eye.

Dry Eye Disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, gender, other diseases, screen time, cosmetics and medications, the use of tobacco products, and your environment. To effectively treat your Dry Eye, it's important to understand the root cause. Our Dry Eye enter takes an integrative approach to diagnosis, treatment, and education, and offers effective and powerful in-office treatments that get real results.

What We Can Do For You

The key to treating Dry Eye Disease is discovering its cause--and that is different for everyone. The American Academy of Optometry has identified at least twelve different factors that can lead to Dry Eye Disease. At Smart Eye Care, we work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses the causes as well as the symptoms.

A Dry Eye consultation involves a deep analysis of the tear film, meibomian glands, eyelid margins, cornea, and more. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to image the meibomian glands, tear meniscus, tear breakup time, and corneal staining. We use this data to diagnose the type of Dry Eye present and develop a personalized treatment plan.

These treatments provide a deep cleaning of eyelids and eyelashes to eliminate biofilm (blephartitis) and demodex. Treatment is performed by a trained professional in as little as 15-30min with no post-procedure down time. Results are immediate and very effective.

Zest / Blephex

This treatment uses a combination of heat and massage to unclog the meibomian glands of the eye. Clogged meibomian (oil) glands often cause an unstable tear film and contribute to Dry Eye Disease. A Lipiflow treatment is painless, takes 12-15 minutes, and has no post-procedure downtime.

Focused IPL treatment targets underlying inflammation that is often a root cause of Dry Eye Disease and Ocular Rosecea. Initial treatment is often done in a series of 4 with maintenance therapy every 4-12 months. 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Scleral contact lenses are a specialty lens designed to cover the entire corneal surface and provide constant hydration to the eye. They are a complement to dry eye treatment plans because they correct vision and provide relief, unlike other soft contact lenses.

UPNEEQ® is a prescription eye drop that temporarily improves droopy eyelids, or ptosis, with a single daily dose. While you won’t get the more dramatic results you can expect from a surgical blepharoplasty, patients see an average of about 1 mm of lift in their upper eyelid after the first use—just enough to make a noticeable difference.

Sometimes adjunct dry eye therapy is needed with in-office treatments to achieve best results. This therapy may include amniotic membranes, serum tears, or a prescription medication (i.e. Restasis, Xiidra, Cequa, Xdemvy, Miebo, or Eysuvis).
