Our Patient Testimonials Say It Best...
My sons first appointment is today but I was inclined to write this review just based on my experience with the women who answered the phone the first two times I called. It’s so refreshing to be met with a pleasant voice when calling to schedule appointments because it’s not the norm anymore. Robin & Kelly were super helpful, very kind & informative. We got our first appointment the same week I called. Looking forward to the visit and so glad we found this office!

Q&A with Our Doctors | Dry Eye Syndrome

What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.

What are the typical treatments for dry eyes?

There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.

Are there any recommendations to help people avoid dry eye?

Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
