The Effects of Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry Eye Syndrome affects nearly one-third of the population, and is split into two major types:

  • Aqueous Deficiency – Insufficient tear production
  • Evaporative Dry Eye – Tears do not contain enough oil so the water evaporates
  • Environmental factors
  • Dehydration
  • Medications (such as antihistamines, antidepressants and birth control pills)
  • Aging and hormonal changes
  • Systemic disease
  • Burning or scratching
  • Foreign body sensation (when it feels like there is something in your eye)
  • Watery eyes
  • Frequent eye infections
  • Difficulty opening eyes in the morning
  • Restasis
  • Punctal plugs
  • Steroid drops
  • Artificial tears
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • Meibomian Gland Expression
  • Soft, Scleral Lenses and EyePrintPRO™
  • Lipiflow
  • Autologous Serum Eye Drops

The Leading Cause of Dry Eye Disease

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) affects 86% of patients with dry eye.

MGD occurs when there is compromise to the function and/or structure of the Meibomian glands. These glands, located in the eyelids produce the protective oily (lipid) layer of the tear film. This oil helps protect the surface of the eye from disease and prevents the watery part of the tears from evaporating when your eyes are open. Without these oils, the eyes become more susceptible to the negative effects that dry climates, air conditioning, computer use, reading and other daily activities can have on the long-term health of our eyes.

TREATING MDG

LipiFlow® is a 12-minute treatment performed in your doctor’s office designed to restore the natural oil flow to the tear film that covers the eye’s surface.

Described as a gently massaging of the eyelids, LipiFlow removes blockages from the meibomian glands, allowing them to properly function and produce the oils that make up the top protective lipid layer of the tear film.

Vaughan Family Vision Care is proud to offer LipiFlow® treatments. For more information about treating your dry eye symptoms and LipiFlow® treatment request an appointment today.
