Treatment for Dry Eye

Dry eye is caused by a lowered production of lipids in the meibomian gland. This causes watery, red eyes, light sensitivity, and blurred vision. If you suffer from dry eye you likely depend on a combination of eye drop prescriptions to cut back on irritating symptoms. Fortunately, new technology is providing long-term solutions to dry eye symptoms.

Surface Interferometer

The Ocular Surface Interferometer uses digital imaging technology to take images that show the thickness of the lipid layer. Dr. Tres can then use this to determine if you’re suffering from dry eye. It can be used during a non-invasive procedure that takes five minutes to complete. Evaluation of lipids takes place both during and after the procedure to determine the best treatment option for you. Measurements include blink dynamics, meibomian gland structure, lipid layer thickness.

Why We Use the Ocular Surface Interferometer

  • Accuracy –Measures thickness with nanometer accuracy.
  • Reporting –Gives us a better visual and improved ability to diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan.

FAQ

Who is most likely to suffer from dry eye?

If you wear contact lenses or are over the age of 50, you have an increased risk of suffering from dry eye. Other risk factors include:

  • Women – especially those who are pregnant, using birth control pills, or have entered menopause
  • Diet lacking vitamin A
  • Diet lacking omega-3 fatty acids

How can I prevent dry eye from worsening?

You can take the following steps to prevent worsening dry eye symptoms:

  • Use eye drops designed to relieve symptoms
  • When doing close-tasks give your eyes periodic breaks
  • Don’t smoke and avoid being around those who are smoking
  • Use a humidifier in your home

What happens if dry eye is left untreated?

Chronic dry eye left untreated can result in a corneal ulcer or conjunctivitis. Corneal ulcers, if allowed to spread and worsen can result in partial or complete loss of vision. If you are experiencing dry eye it is best to develop a treatment plan with your ophthalmologist now instead of waiting until side effects begin to take hold.

What causes dry eye?

Dry eye is caused by the lack of adequate tear or lipid production. This keeps the eyes from having a consistent smooth and clear surface. It also opens your eyes up to the chance of infection.

What cosmetic products should I use if I have dry eye?

Apply eye drops thirty minutes prior to the application of cosmetic products. When applying products, be careful to keep all products outside of the eyelashes. If you choose to use mascara, apply it only to the tips of your eyelashes. However, try to use an eyelash curler in place of mascara when possible. Powder and liquid-based products should also be avoided in favor of creams.
