Dry eyes are a common condition that can cause discomfort and vision problems. It occurs when the eyes don’t produce enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly. The Eye Center, P.A. offers ocular surface disease therapy to help patients manage their dry eye symptoms and restore their comfort and vision.
Ocular surface disease is a broad term used to describe any condition that affects the outermost layer of the eye, known as the ocular surface. This includes conditions such as dry eye syndrome, blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, and other eyelid disorders. All these conditions can lead to dry eyes, which can cause significant discomfort and even vision loss if left untreated.
At The Eye Center, P.A., our team of experienced ophthalmologists use advanced technology to diagnose and treat ocular surface diseases to provide relief from dry eye symptoms. We offer a variety of treatments for dry eyes including prescription medications, artificial tears, punctal plugs (which block tear drainage from the eyes), omega-3 supplements (which reduce inflammation), and more specialized treatments such as LipiFlow (a device used to unblock blocked meibomian glands) or Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL). We also offer comprehensive lifestyle advice on how to reduce your risk of developing dry eyes in the first place—such as wearing protective eyewear when outdoors or using a humidifier indoors—as well as tips on how to manage your symptoms if you already have them.
