Dry eye symptoms can be more than just a minor inconvenience. They can impact your daily life, making it difficult to focus on work, enjoy your favorite activities, or simply relax.

Why Choose Dry Eye Treatment?

Even daily activities like reading or using digital screens can become a challenge when your vision is blurred or your eyes are overly sensitive to light.

The constant discomfort and distraction caused by these symptoms can lower your productivity and overall quality of life. That said, there's hope! Tailored dry eye treatment can bring swift and long-lasting relief, improving your eye health and quality of life.


Exploring Dry Eye Treatments:

Finding the most suitable treatment for dry eyes is essential for lasting relief and optimal eye health. Let's explore a few effective options to help you regain comfort and clarity in your vision.

  • Comfort and Clarity with Specialized Contact Lenses

    Contact lenses have emerged as a popular choice for dry eye sufferers. Specifically designed soft contact lenses can help maintain a stable tear film, reducing friction between the eyelids and the cornea.

    Contact lenses for dry eyes retain moisture and provide ongoing hydration, offering comfort and improving vision. They are a convenient option that can significantly alleviate dry eye symptoms.

  • Instant Relief with Lubricating Eye Drops

    One of the most straightforward and accessible solutions for dry eye is using artificial tears and lubricating eye drops, available over the counter. Adding moisture to the eyes, these products offer temporary relief and comfort whenever needed.

    In severe cases, prescription atropine eye drops may be recommended by an eye doctor to provide targeted relief for your dry eye condition.

  • Non-Invasive IPL Therapy for Chronic Dry Eyes

    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is another effective solution for chronic dry eyes. This non-invasive procedure uses precisely calibrated light pulses to target and reduce inflammation and eliminate demodex in and around the meibomian glands. These glands are responsible for producing the oil layer of the tear film. IPL therapy can improve the quantity and quality of tears, offering long-term relief. IPL therapy is an appealing option for those seeking a non-surgical approach.

  • Innovative Radiofrequency Treatment for Lasting Relief

    Radiofrequency treatment is another cutting-edge option for effectively managing dry eyes. This procedure involves the application of radiofrequency energy to the meibomian glands, stimulating oil production and enhancing tear stability.

    Radiofrequency treatment offers lasting relief from dry eye symptoms and can significantly improve overall eye comfort. Radiofrequency treatment is worth exploring for individuals seeking a non-invasive and sustainable solution.

- Jul. 06, 2020
Dr. C saw me a few months ago on a whim. I was newer to the area and didn't have a new eye doctor y... et. I woke up on a Saturday and couldn't open my eye. Drove down the hill and stopped at the first eye doctors I saw. Walked in hopeful, and the woman at the desk said she would ask the doctor if he could squeeze me in. He did, within 30 minutes I was in and out with a script for my infected eye! Dr. C was wonderful and so kind! My entire family now goes to him. I found everyone in his office to be kind, caring and friendly! All over and excellent experience.
