Dry Eye Treatment


Find Relief From The Constant Discomfort!

Approximately 52 MILLION Americans suffer from dry eye and ocular surface disease, and the number is still increasing with time. But, what exactly is “DRY EYE DISEASE.”

Have you ever felt the itching and burning sensation in your eyes? Or the awkwardness of red, watery eyes when you’re trying to connect with others? If yes…. You get it!  Dry eye, in simple terms, is when your eyes can’t maintain enough moisture. There are two primary reasons for experiencing its symptoms:

In any of the above situations, you’re left with those nagging dry eye symptoms. 

But here’s the good part!

At Vision Gallery, we’re committed to providing the relief you’ve been searching for. With our cutting-edge technology, we address the root cause of dry eye diseases. Check out our advanced treatments.

Symptoms of Dry Eye Disease

Symptoms of dry eye disease encompass a range of discomforts and visual disturbances, including:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Burning sensation
  • Itchiness
  • Stinging discomfort
  • Excessive tearing
  • Blurry or fluctuating vision

Dry eyes is a fairly common disease that can affect any of us. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, get a comprehensive checkup to take care of your eye sight.

What Causes Dry Eyes?

Have you ever wondered why our eyes sometimes feel as dry as a desert? Lets dig into the root cause;

The Trio of Your Tear Film

Our eyes have a tear layer known as the film which consists of three different layers:

When these three components are not in sync our eyes can become dry and uncomfortable.

So What Causes the Imbalance?

There are reasons why our tear film may not function optimally: 

For some individuals, it’s simply a matter of their eyes not producing tears. For others, it seems like their tears are drying up faster than others. At Vision Gallery, we’re here to assist you in comprehending and addressing these problems directly, so your eyes remain happy and well hydrated!

Your Journey to Comfort Begins Now!

We understand the weight of the challenges you face daily. The fear of permanent damage, the anxiety of social situations, the sleepless nights wondering if there’s a solution out there for you!

At Vision Gallery, we make sure that you don’t walk this journey alone. Take the first step towards lasting relief. Schedule an appointment with us and get treatment immediately.

NuEra Radiofrequency (RF)

The OptiPLUS (NuEra Tight) Radiofrequency technology utilizes innovative dual frequency RF technology to accurately administer heat through various layers of the skin. This targets the meibomian glands and promotes collagen production. When combined with OPT technology (using OptiLight), this approach markedly enhances the expressibility of meibomian glands, the clarity of meibum, and alleviates patient symptoms. Additionally, it offers the advantageous side effects of tightening skin, reducing wrinkles, and bolstering collagen strength. RF treatments can be used alone or alongside other treatment options.

Microblepharoexfoliation (MBE) using Zest

Microblepharoexfoliation is a gentle procedure that removes the biofilm and bacterial toxins from the eyelid margin. This biofilm is a major contributor to inflammatory dry eye and blepharitis.

Blepharitis is a common eye condition when normal skin bacteria over grows on the eyelids. This causes a crusty layer to form on the eyelashes. It can make your eyelids red, itchy, and burn. If we don’t treat it, it can lead to dry eyes and even increase the risk of eye infections. MBE significantly improves the health of the ocular surface.

Meibomian Gland Expression Thermal Treatment using Mibo Thermaflow

This treatment utilizes controlled thermal pulsation technology to liquefy and express the hardened meibum from the Meibomian glands. It’s a comfortable procedure that helps restore the natural oil flow to the tear film.

Lumenis Optilight Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

We are thrilled to be able to offer OptiLight IPL, the first and only FDA-approved therapy for the management of dry eye disease due to MGD. This treatment works by targeting the root cause of the condition, inflammation, as well as decreasing demodex and rejuvenating the meibomian glands. We love IPL because it is the first drug-free, drop-free, non-invasive solution in addition to having aesthetic facial benefits. IPL was born in the world of dermatology primarily for patients with rosacea and sun/age spots. Ocular rosacea is a form of rosacea that primarily affects the eyelids and ocular surface which can lead to dry eye disease, specifically meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Ocular Rosacea is characterized by growth of vessels along the eyelid margin along with tired, red, burning, stinging , itchy eyes. IPL is a light-based therapy that is extremely effective at stabilizing the tear film by breaking the vicious inflammatory dry eye cycle. This therapy is quick and only takes 15-20 minutes each session. At Vision Gallery we defeat your dry eyes at the source with IPL, rather than relying on temporary relief with artificial tears. Your long-term dry eye solution is finally here, thanks to the Lumenis OptiLight IPL.

How Does it Work?

At Vision Gallery, OptiLight uses targeted pulses of light to diminish the inflammation often linked with dry eye disease. This technique enhances the meibomian glands’ performance and helps in relieving dry eye discomfort. It further comes with the following benefits:

Before Your Treatment

First, we’ll do a simple eye check-up to see what’s causing your dry eyes and see how the current tear film is working to protect the eyes. With new techniques to find and treat dry eyes, we’ll make sure you know why we suggest each step.

After Your Treatment

Usually, the treatment plan has 4 sessions, with a break of 3–4 weeks between each.. Most of the patients  are requested to visit every 3-4 months for a check-up.

Most people resume their activities  as usual. You may feel a bit of warmth or redness in the area we treated , but it goes away in a few hours.

Very please with the customer service and attention I received at this location! Usually you feel like a hunted prey when I walk into these places because they want the sale but not here! I was treated with respect and was very comfortable with the young lady that helped me. I was also explained in detail why my lenses were adjusted since I am now staring at a computer screen all day long for work! No one has broken that down for me! What a difference it has made too! Thank you so much guys!
