Get relief for your dry eyes at EyeCare Specialties. Our team of dry eye experts can recommend a treatment that is right for you. We offer the latest technological advancements in treatments as well as prescription drops. Learn more about which treatment option is right for you.

Relief with LipiFlow®

LipiFlow® is a procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye - blocked Meibomian glands. LipiFlow® works by applying precisely targeted warmth from the back of the eyelid, and slight pressure from the front to the affected glands. This treatment, performed right in our office, can unblock glands, interrupt physical deterioration, and provide symptom relief.

Relief with TrueTear™

TrueTear™ is the latest technology in temporary tear production for Dry Eye sufferers. The prescription device uses neurostimulation to send tiny pulses of energy through your nose to stimulate tear production. The pulses activate a natural response, so your tears are all your own.

Prescription Eye Drops

Need relief but want to stick with the drops you love? That works, too! Your optometrist can find the drops that will work best and keep your eyes comfortable throughout the day.

More about Dry Eye Disease

Tears are necessary for eye health. Dry Eye occurs when eyes do not produce sufficient tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. Without proper treatment, inadequate tears can make it frustrating to read, watch TV, drive, work on the computer, and many other personal or professional activities.

The most common form of Dry Eye is Evaporative Dry Eye, which affects 86% of Dry Eye cases. This form results from a shortage of oil in your tears caused by a blockage in your eyelid (Meibomian) glands, leading tears to evaporate faster than normal.
