Dry Eye

Healthy tear production is an important element for comfortable eyes and clear vision. Dry eye occurs when the tear film does not produce adequate lubrication for the eye. Sometimes, the eye may not be producing enough tears or the tear quality is poor.

Dry eye often affects us as we become older, however, it can affect anyone at any age. Factors that can contribute to dry eye discomfort include wearing contact lenses, extended digital device use, medications, diet, and some health conditions.

What happens during a dry eye assessment?

A dry eye assessment allows our optometrist to examine the underlying causes and extent of your dry eye.

We use an Oculus Keratograph 5 to take high definition diagnostic images and scans to conduct a thorough analysis of your tear quality and structure of your glands.

After your assessment, a tailored treatment plan can then be developed by your optometrist.

Types of treatment

As the cause of dry eye is different in every individual, our optometrists may use a combination of these treatment techniques to help you achieve the best outcome for your eyes.


Eye Examinations

Our comprehensive eye assessments not only test what you can see but also examine your eye health and how your visual system is working as a whole.


Moist Heat Therapy

Moist heat therapy can be done in the practice, with the Blephasteam system using a combination of warmth and moisture to treat the eyelids and restore the function of meibomian glands.


Meibomian Gland Expression

This is a simple therapy to open the glands in your lower eyelid if they have become blocked. It is conducted using special instruments that are non-sharp and safe.


IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy

IPL is the most advanced dry eye treatment and uses our Eye-Light device, which uses light in a safe and scientifically tested manner to resolve problems with the meibomian glands, and other causes of dry eye. A course of IPL may be recommended to treat your condition and to maintain a healthy eye surface.
