Proven Relief for Dry Eyes

Dry eye syndrome is a one of the most common problems in the world. What’s truly unfortunate is how many people suffer without effective strategies to treat it.

On the flip side, individuals suffering from dry eye syndrome may incorrectly self-diagnose and treat, prolonging their symptoms.

Common symptoms of dry eye syndrome include:

  • Burning and red eyes
  • Tearing and watery eyes
  • Swollen, irritated eyes
  • Tired and fatigued eyes
  • Blurred/distorted vision
  • Itchy or irritated, gritty eyes
  • Light sensitivity/glare

If left alone, dry eye syndrome can lead to loss of eyelashes, styes, and corneal scarring.

If you are frequently experiencing any of the symptoms described above please book an appointment. 

There are many different triggers for dry eyes, but the root cause is almost always a problem with tear quality.

Our tears are a specific mix of water, oils, and mucous that moisten and protect the surface of our eyes.

If any one of these components is lacking, our tears will not function effectively. Fortunately, MEye Health offers many optimal treatments for dry eyes.

Therapy for Dry Eyes

Some of the treatments we offer for dry eye syndrome include:

BlephEx is a brief but powerful deep-cleaning in-office treatment for eyelids and lashes. It is designed to enhance eyelid hygiene and remove dead skin, embedded eye makeup, and other debris for clean and comfortable eyelids.

Your meibomian glands are responsible for the production of meibum, the oily component of tears found in the upper and lower lids. Meibum prevents evaporation of the tears so that the eyes retain moisture.

When the meibomian glands are clogged, it causes tears to evaporate quickly, resulting in dry eyes. Meibomian gland expression is the manual extraction of these glands, and debridement is the manual scraping of dead tissue from the lid margins resulting in prolonged relief form dry eye.

Depending on the severity of your dry eye and for enhancing the above treatments, an at home regimen may be the preferred option. This may include warm compresses, lid cleaners, preservative-free artificial tears and nutritional supplements.

There are many different types and brands of these products, and we will select the right ones for you.

  • Toxin free eye makeup
  • Dry eye goggles
  • Scleral lenses
  • Prescription medication

Treatments for Dry Eyes

We offer treatments for all aspects of dry eye, including the latest prescription and non-prescription approaches. We help by determining the root cause of your symptoms and creating a unique strategy while using a range of modern techniques and technologies.

We can recommend at-home or in-office techniques based on your needs. Some of the most common treatments we offer include:

Umay REST is a revolutionary eye mask device that uses heating and cooling technology to address digital eye strain and uncomfortable dry eye symptoms.

This technology also connects to your smart device to help personalize your sessions, providing you with the comfort you need to get up and enjoy your day or unwind at the end of it. Please speak to our team about our Umay REST products and how they can help you!

This innovative technology uses radiofrequency to treat dry eyes while also targeting fine wrinkles—win, win! We use Forma-I from InMode, a nonsurgical and Health Canada-approved method equipped with specific temperature controls to provide safe and effective treatment.

When you receive this treatment, it will feel like a gentle, warm massage around the eyelids. This movement helps improve blood circulation, unclog the oil-producing glands that line your eyelids, and alleviate inflammation that can contribute to your dry eye symptoms.

Lumecca intense pulsed light (IPL) from InMode is a delicate process that uses heat to decrease inflammation and ocular rosacea. With this incredible technology, we can eliminate overactive bacteria, parasites, and microorganisms by closing the blood vessels near the eyelash margin. Why? This area is prone to inflammation and redness, causing dry eye symptoms. At the end of your treatment, you’ll have less irritation and increased moisture to soothe your dry eyes.

A bonus effect of IPL reveals itself as the skin around your eyes looks more radiant with fewer fine lines. After treatment, you’ll have to wear sunscreen for up to 2 weeks.
