Expert Dry Eye Treatment - Hamilton Optometrists
What Is Dry Eye
Dry Eye Exams And Treatments
At our optometrist’s office, we specialize in comprehensive dry eye examinations and effective treatments. We utilize advanced imaging, LipiScan® to evaluate the meibomian glands in the eyelids and manually express them to assess oil fluidity. Meibomian gland dysfunction is the most common cause of dry eye, so we perform eyelid hygiene treatments to restore normal function to these glands. We begin by cleaning the eyelid margins to unblock the openings of these glands and optimize results using a thermal treatment, Lipiflow ®, which gently warms and massages the eyelids’ interior, expressing clogged material in the glands, restoring healthy oil production, enhancing tear quality and combating eye discomfort related to dry eye. To provide ongoing relief, we recommend supportive therapy including Hylo drops and heat masks for maintaining a fresh sensation in the eyes.
