Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eye disease or syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye.
A range of dry eye treatments are available including:
Artificial eye drops often provide short-term relief along with the application of a warm compress to help loosen any blockages in the oil glands.
Blephasteam is an eyelid warming device using moisture and heat to treat meibomian gland dysfunction. The treatment sessions are short and work well for most people with meibomian gland dysfunction.
Intense Regulated Pulsed Light (IRPL) can provide long-term relief. It is a non-invasive treatment utilising IRPL to stimulate the secretion and the contraction of the meibomian glands. It is quick, gentle and can offer long-lasting relief.
Please seek advice from your local Eyecare Plus optometrist for diagnosis and dry eye treatments.
