At-Home Dry Eye Therapy
Once the meibum has been sufficiently heated, the device gently compresses your eyelid to remove the built-up clogged meibum from your meibomian glands.
Intense Pulsed-Light (IPL) Therapy (Coming Soon!)
TempSure Envi is one of our newest technological additions to our library of dry eye treatments. This device uses state-of-the-art radiofrequency lasers to melt blockages in your meibomian glands and stimulate the flow of healthy meibum to your tear film.
Meibomian Gland Expression
Meibum is produced by the meibomian glands, which are located in our eyelids. If our meibomian glands become clogged, they cannot provide our eyes with sufficient meibum, causing dry eyes.
Meibomian gland expression is a painless in-office treatment that combines soothing heat and eyelid massage to soften the thick meibum that obstructs your glands so that it can be gently removed, allowing your glands to function normally again.
Punctal plugs are tiny, biocompatible inserts that are placed in your tear ducts. This ensures that your tears do not drain away too quickly, thereby increasing your tear volume. Punctal plugs can provide relief from some forms of dry eyes.
In some cases, dry eyes can be caused by blepharitis, an infection and irritation of the eyelid margins that can cause a crusty buildup of debris and bacteria along your lid line.
Blephex is an in-office treatment involving a small, handheld cleaning tool that allows your optometrist to exfoliate along the edge of your eyelids and eyelashes, removing the debris and bacteria, relieving your blepharitis symptoms.
