Testing & Treatment for Dry Eye Disease

Specialized Equipment: Determining the source of dry eye disease is an essential part in the process of treating it. If the source is a gland blockage or disorder, this root cause will have to be treated rather than solely caring for the symptoms.

There are several specialized tools that use dyes to reveal blockages and alternate eyelid issues such as the LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation, the LipiView Ocular Surface Interferometer, and others.

After Eye Surgery Treatment:
If surgery is necessary for a number of issues, one of the resulting conditions can be dry eye disease. If your treatment clinic includes a specialized dry eye section, all of your care can be localized in one setting.

Dry eye instructions, eye exams and all post-operative care can be done at this convenient clinic. Visiting an Optometrist specially trained and focused on dry eye can be highly useful, as this professional keeps up to date on the newest technology, eye drops and vitamins that lead to dry eye relief from troubling concerns such as itchy, red eyes and tearing.

Shop for Dry Eye Supplies: Eye Effects stocks a wide selection of dry eye merchandise and treatment products including over-the-counter topical drops, specialized vitamins, nutraceuticals, and more.

Eyelid Cleaning: At Eye Effects, we know the importance of eyelid hygiene. We can expertly clean your eyelid, preventing pain from blepharitis: eyelid swelling as a result of gland blockages.
