What is Dry Eye Disease?

There are 2 types of dry eye disease, each of which causes similar symptoms:

  • Evaporative dry eye occurs when tears diminish too quickly because they don’t stay on the eye surface. This type of dry eye is more common, often caused by meibomian gland dysfunction.
  • Aqueous deficient dry eye is less common and occurs when you don’t produce enough tears. When you don’t have enough tears, they can’t properly lubricate the eye surface. 

While each type of dry eye can cause similar symptoms, understanding which kind you have is the first step to developing your dedicated treatment plan and bringing you the relief you deserve.

Our Personalized Treatments

Nobody has the same dry eye disease. Each person’s situation is unique to them, which means having a variety of treatment options is crucial to providing relief. We often group treatments together to increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Oculus Tear Breakup Analysis

We use our Oculus Keratograph 5M to examine how your tears behave, particularly how they break up. The Oculus is crucial to helping us diagnose your specific dry eye condition and informs our treatment plan moving forward.

Artificial tears, or eye drops, can help relieve dry eye symptoms like grittiness and irritation. They provide moisture to the eye surface when tears aren’t functioning correctly and can be an efficient and effective way to gain relief.

Punctal plugs are a common treatment for aqueous deficient dry eye. Punctal plugs are small rubber implants we insert into the small openings at the edges of your eyelid near your nose called the puncta to prevent your tears from draining too quickly.

We can prescribe some medicines and supplements like Restasis eye drops, fish oil, and other medications to ease dry eye symptoms and provide much-needed relief at the root of the issue.

Meibomian gland expression consists of physically unblocking clogged tear glands manually by pushing clogs out of the glands to increase the likelihood of good tear function. Meibomian gland expression is often completed in addition to other treatments.
