Chronic Discomfort? Find Relief.
Millions of Americans suffer from dry eye, for more than just acute, environmental reasons. The causes of dry eye are complex, but at Eagle Vision, we’re committed to finding a personalized solution for your unique situation.
When you come for an eye exam, we will assess your lifestyle, your symptoms, and your overall eye health. A full, comprehensive exam can help us diagnose the underlying cause of your scratchy, uncomfortable, dry eyes.
For all of our patients over the age of 12, we perform LipiScan meibomian gland imaging to help us screen for meibomian gland dysfunction.
We have many treatment options available for relief, so you don’t have to suffer in silence. Book your appointment today!

What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye occurs when your tears are either insufficient in quantity or inadequate in composition to effectively keep the eyes moist and comfortable.
Reasons for Dry Eye
- Contact lens wear
- The aging process
- Certain medications
- Medical conditions such as lupus or Sjögren’s syndrome
- Recent laser eye surgery
The more common reason for dry eye is poor-quality tear composition. Your tears are made up of 3 layers, each with a unique and important contribution to the comfort of your eye.
The Tear Film
The meibomian glands are the tiny glands that line your top and bottom eyelids. These glands produce the oil layer of your tear film. If they become blocked, through either debris on the eyelid margin or inflammation in the eye area, insufficient oil may be produced.
Our LipiScan imaging technology allows us to assess how well your meibomian glands are functioning.
Our Treatment Methods
Dry eye may be a common problem but there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. We offer a variety of treatments, tailored to your unique situation.
LipiFlow is an in-office procedure that uses heat and gentle massage to unblock meibomian glands. The treatment is relatively non-invasive. Specially-designed activators are placed over the eyes, heated up to liquefy any blockages, and then a massaging pressure flushes away the debris.
HydroEye is a supplement intended to help you maintain a healthy tear film and reduce inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and other nutrients help to raise lactoferrin levels, a protective protein found in tears.
For many people, supplementing with HydroEye can replace the need for eye drops.
Bruder Moist Heat Eye Compress
This mask helps to relieve blockages in the meibomian glands, allowing the oil they produce to flow and balance the tear film. These masks are anti-bacterial and non-allergenic, washable, reusable, and self-hydrating.
OCuSOFT makes a variety of cleansers and eyelid scrubs ideal for removing dirt, debris, and Demodex mites from the eye area, reducing inflammation.

Our Google Reviews
We have visited Eagle Vision three separate times now and have had a spectacular experience each time.
In the two instances that were emergencies, the staff got us into the doctor immediately. When we arrived at the office, we were treated so considerately and taken care of in a timely manner. The Dr is very knowledgeable and personable with all ages. What I appreciate most is that he takes his time with each patient; we have never felt rushed or that we only had so much time with him.
In one instance, my daughter had the end of a spiral notebook caught in her eye. We were able to see Dr. Barney immediately. He and the office staff took such good care of our little girl. They also saved us a great deal of money compared to visiting the ER and we got SUCH better service and consultation.
I HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone. We won’t be going anywhere else for our vision needs. It’s a longer drive for us, but well worth the time.
Dr. Barney did a great job with my 5 year old son. It was his first time getting his eyes checked and he helped him not to be nervous. It all went very smooth and professional. Great office! Great Dr.!
Love having an eye doctor close to my home that accepted my insurance. Did a great job with both me and my children. Very friendly and thorough. Good selection of frames.
Everything went well. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and got me into my appointment quickly. I thought it was better experience than going to one of those in-store optical centers, which would have cost the same amount or more.
Dr Barney, Thanks so much for all the help. I have had my exam, prescription, and glasses taken care of. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I also had 3 other family members go to Dr Barney.
Special thanks for offering to fix an older pair of glasses as well. I will try to round up the parts 🙂
Thanks for the text messages keeping me informed of appointment as well as the one about my frames being ready for pick up.
