In-Office Dry Eye Treatments
Everybody experiences dry eyes differently, so we personalize our approach to your unique needs. Depending on your symptoms, we can recommend a range of in-office treatments to help address your symptoms.
OptiLight by Lumenis
Punctal plugs are tiny silicone, collagen, or hydrogel inserts placed in the tear ducts to reduce tear drainage. This helps increase the moisture available in your eyes and can relieve dry eye symptoms.
Punctal plugs can be temporary or permanent, depending on the type of plug used.
Amniotic membranes are natural tissues placed on the eye to help manage dry eye symptoms.
They can act as a barrier to protect the eyes’ surface from irritation and inflammation and promote the healing of damage caused by dry eye.
