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

Eyes that don’t produce enough tears account for about 10% of dry eye cases. There are a variety of reasons why this occurs, including:

  • 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 3 layers of your team film include a mucus layer that spreads moisture over the surface of the eye, a water layer to provide hydration, and an oil layer to keep the water layer from evaporating too quickly.

An imbalance in any of these layers can cause dry eye.

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.

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.

OptiLight by Lumenis is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done in the area below the eyes to manage dry eye. The first and only IPL FDA-approved for dry eye management.

The treatment is safe, gentle, and is backed by more than 20 clinical studies.
