Dry eye affects at least 25 million Americans, and probably at least 3 million Canadians. Approximately 70% of people over 65 years old have dry eye symptoms.

With the increasing use of digital devices, and the decrease in blink rate when using digital devices, we are also now seeing much younger people with dry eye symptoms.

In our office we use the latest testing procedures to diagnose dry eye - from dry eye questionaires to assess severity of symptoms, to diagnostic testing to confirm the diagnosis.

Our office offers the latest in treatment options ranging from non-medical therapies to medical prescriptions. We offer at home treatment steps including hot compress masks such as the Bruder mask.

Various eyelid cleansing products are available, as are omega-3 supplements and preservative free eye drops. We also provide in-office eyelid micro-blepharoexfolliation using the Blephex tool.

Our medical treatment options range from prescription antibiotics (both drops and oral medications) to prescription anti-inflammatory drops to prescription immunomodulator drops like Restasis.
