Don’t Dry Eye Syndrome Sabotage Your Eye Comfort

Dry eyes are an exceedingly common problem exacerbated by a host of factors—from a dry or windy environment to aging and hormonal changes to computer and screen use

If you suffer from dry eye syndrome, you may be suffering needlessly. Visit your optometrists at Highstreet Eyecare Center and see how they can ease those symptoms and return comfort to your eyes.

What Is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eye syndrome is the condition caused by disruptions to your tears that can leave your eyes vulnerable to several uncomfortable symptoms, including:

  • Stinging eyes
  • Burning eyes
  • Red eyes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurry vision
  • The feeling of a foreign object in your eye

Your tears are composed of 3 distinct layers:

  • A mucus layer that sits closest to your eye and keeps tears in place
  • A watery middle layer that keeps your eye hydrated and clean
  • An oily outer layer that keeps the surface of your eye smooth and prevents tears from evaporating

When the quality or composition of these layers is compromised, including blockages in your meibomian glands that secrete the oily layer, dry eye syndrome can develop.

Find Relief With Our Dry Eye Treatments

Dry eye syndrome is irritating, and if it continues unchecked, it can lead to more serious problems like corneal abrasions and eye infections. Our dry eye treatments are available at our Surrey location.

iLux

The Systane iLux system targets meibomian gland dysfunction, which causes blockages in the eyelid glands that produce the oily part of the tears. This convenient handheld device is efficient and effective, only taking 8–12 minutes per treatment session.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is an effective dry eye treatment, treating symptoms at the root cause.

IPL treatment is used to treat chronic dry eyes caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) and Ocular Rosacea. This treatment involves aiming controlled bursts of light to the treatment area which can unclog the meibomian glands and reduce inflammation.

*Available at our Surrey location.

The heat from radiofrequency therapy has been used in dermatology to tighten skin for decades. It’s now being used to target the source of dry eye by warming the meibomian glands, allowing the blockages to soften and encouraging sufficient tear production.

*Available at our Surrey location.

If the meibomian glands are clogged with oil buildup, gentle gland expression can help clear them up. This allows the gland system in your lids to provide the appropriate component of your tears in sufficient amounts once again.

Redefine Your Look with Facial Aesthetics

At High Street Eyecare, we’re here to help you see better and look better. Whether it’s a new pair of glasses, or a facial aesthetic treatment, our team is here to help you look and feel your best. 

In addition to bringing you relief from dry eye, our advanced treatments can also enhance your natural look.

InMode Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) pulses to deliver gentle warmth to a specific treatment area. This treatment stimulates molecular and cellular reactions, effectively remodeling the skin.

Depending on your goals, we can use RF therapy to tighten loose skin, smooth the appearance of cellulite, reduce localized fat deposits, and soften fine lines and wrinkles.

 

*Available at our Surrey location.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a quick and effective treatment that uses controlled bursts of light to improve skin complexion and reduce the appearance of damage.

IPL can eliminate skin discoloration, improve skin texture, and minimize wrinkles, leaving the skin smoother and refreshed.

*Available at our Surrey location.
