Are your eyes uncomfortable?
Dry, irritated, or red eyes can result from many different underlying issues. Both the amount and the quality of the tears can affect the health of your eye surface. Ocular surface problems commonly cause redness, grittiness, fluctuations in vision, and eye fatigue.

Your doctor may prescribe a combination of prescription and non-prescription treatments to improve your eye comfort.

Some patients may benefit from in-office treatments for the eye surface. The in-office heat treatment combines targeted heat therapy with an expression of the oil glands (meibomian glands) that line your eyelids. Often a series of three sessions is best to improve your natural system for lubricating the eyes.
