Dry Eye: Understanding the Condition

Dry eye or more accurately called Ocular Surface Disease, is a condition that causes ocular discomfort and visual impairment. There are many contributors of this condition including but not limited to: Tear film stability, genetics, systemic disease, diet, hydration, allergies, inflammation, bacteria, and eyelid function. These are just a few reasons why you may be experiencing dry eye discomfort!

Common symptoms include redness, tearing, itching, blurred vision, burning, light sensitivity and feeling as if something is in the eye. Our doctors here at Quick Vision have had intensive training and education on how to meet your dry eye needs.

Treatment Options

OptiLight IPL


Lumenis Optilight IPL is a FDA approved, top-of-the-line modular multiapplication platform, capable of treating over 30 skin conditions and hair removal. This machine uses broad spectrum pulsed light to transmit through a continuously cooled applicator placed on the skin. These wavelengths penetrate the skin on the face and around the eyes to deeply penetrate and heat the meibomian glands. These oil glands line our lids and produce and make up the oil that is vital for our tear film. The IPL also targets inflammation, bacteria, pigment and redness

in the skin. Lumenis Optiplus- is a FDA-cleared frequency RF technology that precisely reaches different skin layers to enhance blood circulation, collagen production and target meibomian glands.

Oculus Keratograph-is an advanced corneal topography, with keratometry and color camera optimization for external eye imagining. This piece of equipment helps our providers examine meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time, tear meniscus height measurement and evaluation of lipid layers.
