What Is Dry Eye?

Dry eye can occur when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when you have poor quality tears

When tears are inadequate or unstable, they can cause discomfort, irritation, and even damage the eye’s surface. Dry eye typically develops in adults, but you might have a higher risk of experiencing dry eye depending on your age, health, and the types of medications you take.

Dry Eye Symptoms & Causes

Some of the most common dry eye symptoms include:

  • Stinging, burning, gritty eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Feeling like there’s something in your eye
  • Wateriness
  • Redness

We can determine if you have dry eye syndrome when you come in for an eye exam, where we’ll take a detailed look at your eyes and recommend personalized treatments if needed.

Technology-Driven Dry Eye Treatments

Nepean Optometric is ready to support your journey toward comfortable sight with the help of IPL therapy, radiofrequency therapy, and ZEST dry eye treatments.

Through these technologies, we can provide personalized dry eye treatments that address the root cause of your dry eye, rather than just masking symptoms. We’ll gladly walk you through these treatments when you visit us for an appointment!

Darwin IPL

Intense pulsed-light therapy, or IPL, uses light technology to gently heat your eyelids, loosening blockages that may be causing evaporative dry eye symptoms. To help address your symptoms, we use Darwin Luvo IPL technology, the only Health Canada-approved IPL treatment for dry eye in the country.

We might recommend this treatment if your symptoms are caused by MGD or blepharitis.

Radiofrequency therapy, also known as RF therapy, can help manage and alleviate evaporative dry eye symptoms by gently warming your eyelids and loosening blockages.

ZEST (Zocular Eyelid System Treatment) is an eyelid-exfoliation treatment that helps address issues like blepharitis and keeps your eyelids clean of bacteria possibly contributing to your dry eye symptoms.
