A Closer Look at Dry Eye

Before helping you find what treatment option is best for your needs, Dr. Stephens feels it’s important to take the time to help you understand how dry eye works. 

The tear film is where it all begins. Your tears are composed of 3 layers:

  • The oily outer layer
  • The watery middle layer
  • The inner mucus layer

Dry eye can occur when the glands that produce these elements of your tears are not functioning properly or become inflamed. Inflammation of the glands that line your eyelids can also lead to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). MGD can reduce oil production, causing water to evaporate and cause dryness.

Our Dry Eye Treatments

We know how frustrating and uncomfortable dealing with dry eye can be. Dr. Stephens and the rest of the team offer innovative dry eye treatments to help you overcome dry eyes and find relief.

OptiLight by Lumenis

OptiLight by Lumenis is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done in the area below the eyes to manage dry eye. The first and only IPL FDA-approved for dry eye management.

The treatment is safe, gentle, and is backed by more than 20 clinical studies.

OptiLight uses precise pulses of light to reduce the inflammation that is typically associated with dry eye disease, improve tear break-up time, and increase meibomian gland functionality.

Autologous Serum Tears

Autologous serum tears (AST) are a custom-made solution derived from the patient’s own blood. This allows them to closely resemble true tears. The blood is collected and processed to create a sterile serum that is rich in growth factors and natural anti-inflammatory agents. These properties make AST an effective treatment for dry eye, reducing inflammation and promoting healing of the corneal surface.

Autologous serum contains proteins, growth factors, vitamins A and C, antioxidants, and electrolytes.

Thoughtful & Knowledgeable Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye shouldn’t put your productivity on hold. Dr. Stephens and her team are excited to offer innovative treatment options to help you address the underlying causes of your dry eyes. When you visit us, you can expect a warm welcome and knowledgeable staff.
