Dry Eye Syndrome, also known as Ocular Surface Disorder or Dysfunctional Tear Syndrome, is a condition which causes symptoms of burning, scratchy, and irritated eyes, discomfort, and light sensitivity.  There are quite a few causes for dry eye including age, gender (women are more susceptible than men), certain medications, our environment, contact lens use, gland blockage, LASIK, and working on the computer. Dry eyes are affecting adults earlier than ever due to the emergence of the Internet, computer-related jobs, and hand-held devices. Staring at a near target (like computers & hand held devices) significantly decreases your blink rate, thus repeatedly drying out your ocular surface.

While there is no complete cure for dry eye, artificial tears, prescription eye drops (steroids, Restasis, Xiidra), Lipiflow, lid hygiene, Omega 3’s, and drinking a lot of water while decreasing caffeine intake often helps keep you comfortable and seeing well.

We are excited to announce that we just recently installed two new pieces of technology called The LipiScan Dynamic Meibomian Imager  and The LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System.  

 

The LipiScan™ with Dynamic Meibomian Imaging™ (DMI) captures high-definition images of the meibomian glands.  The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System consists of a Console and a single-use sterile device, known as the Activator, and has a drug-free mechanism of action. Eye care professionals use the LipiFlow System to treat MGD patients in-office with confidence and efficiency.

 

The LipiFlow System represents more than 10 years of dedicated research and is protected by more than 30 patents. A phased pressure profile with adaptive force equalization and proximal-to-distal peristaltic motion evacuates gland contents as the inner lid is gently heated.

Why did we name our dry eye clinic The Greenhouse?

 

If you've lived in Spring Hill long enough you may remember the large greenhouse on the property where we are currently located.  Our dry eye clinic pays homage to this history and is even decorated with tools and items found in the original greenhouse.  We used the green barn wood and green fireplace mantle in this room.  Also, greenhouses are full of humidity and moisture and if you have dry eyes, we want them to feel this way too!
