Dry Eye Syndrome


If dry, irritated eyes are disrupting your day-to-day life, our optometry clinic in Calgary is here to offer you thorough dry eye treatment and management.

Our skilled team of optometrists is well-versed in pinpointing and addressing the root causes of dry eye syndrome, bringing you advanced solutions to alleviate discomfort and enhance your eye health. In this article, we delve into the complexities of dry eye, effective treatment approaches, and the specialized attention our eye care professionals provide to the Calgary community.

Dry eye syndrome, a prevalent issue affecting countless individuals globally, arises from inadequate tear production or excessive tear evaporation. This imbalance can cause eye discomfort, redness, and vision problems. Various factors, including age, hormonal shifts, environmental influences, and certain medications, can trigger dry eye.

Our clinic’s optometrists understand the significant toll that dry eye can take on your well-being. We conduct thorough assessments to identify precisely what’s causing your symptoms. Leveraging state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, we evaluate your tear quantity, the stability of your tear film, and the general condition of the eye surface to tailor a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

Personalized Dry Eye Management:

Once the root causes of your dry eye have been identified, our optometrists will develop a personalized management plan tailored to your specific needs. Our clinic offers a wide range of evidence-based treatments to alleviate symptoms, enhance tear production, and protect the ocular surface.

1. Preservative-free Lubricating Eye Drops: We can recommend and prescribe lubricating eye drops that replenish moisture, reduce inflammation, and promote healing of the ocular surface. Our optometrists will guide you in choosing the most suitable eye drops for your condition.

2. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) Treatment: MGD is a common underlying cause of dry eye. Our clinic specializes to improve meibomian gland function, allowing for better oil production and tear stability.

3. Prescription Medications: In certain cases, prescription medications may be necessary to manage severe dry eye symptoms. Our experienced eye doctors are knowledgeable in prescribing medications that can target the root causes of dry eye and alleviate discomfort.
