Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eye treatment is more than just drops!
At Peachtree Corners Eye Clinic, we understand that dry eyes can be a very frustrating thing to have to deal with- especially with the intense computer work that many of us do today. We pride ourselves in offering our patients more than temporary relief with over-the-counter eye drops. From topical ocular medications, medical procedures like punctal occlusion, to cutting edge in-office treatments like Lipiflow or TempSure Envi Radiofrequency, we make sure we have tailored treatments for each individual patient.
If your eyes are dry and gritty and eyedrops just don’t seem to be helping, you may have an underlying issue in your eyelids causing your Dry Eye Disease. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, or MGD, is when the glands in your eyelids are obstructed or clogged and aren’t creating the necessary oils that keep your eyes healthy and protected. MGD is a leading cause of Dry Eye Disease and could be the cause of yours too. In fact, in one study, 86% of dry eye patients had MGD.
The good news is that we can help! Come see us for a Dry Eye Disease and MGD consultation!
We can assess your dry eye condition, and with a simple evaluation, we can help determine if you have MGD. We offer a treatment for MGD with the LipiFlow® Pulsation System. The treatment, a combination of localized heat and gentle but directional pressure, has a restorative effect on your Meibomian gland function. It clears gland obstructions so that your glands can produce the essential oils needed for a healthy tear film and eye.
TempSure Envi is a gentle new radiofrequency treatment that uses heat to unclog your glands to improve your Dry Eye Symptoms, it also minimizes facial fine lines and wrinkles, tightens skin and improves the appearance of cellulite.
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M is an advanced corneal topographer with a built-in real keratometer and a color camera optimized for external imaging. Unique features include examining the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluating the lipid layer.
