Dry Eye Treatment

Stop the drops

Dry Eye affects over 300 million people worldwide – and many Calgarians considering our brutally dry weather.

Dry Eye symptoms include:

  • Increased evaporation of tears
  • Unstable tear film
  • Damage to the eye surface
  • Further discomfort
  • Inflammation and cell damage
  • Fluctuation and decrease in vision

If you have dry eyes, rely on drops for temporary relief and think it may just be sensitive eyes or seasonal allergies, you may actually have Dry Eye. The good news is we offer Lipiflow and IPL treatment and can help you decide which option is best for you.

Lipiflow

We successfully treat Dry Eye through Lipiflow – the only FDA approved device that removes gland blockages and restores Meibomian glands function, which is the root cause of the condition. Using Vectored Thermal Pulsation technology, the Lipiflow treatment applies heat to the inner eyelids and removes obstructions in your Meibomian glands. You’ll finally have tears, and the relief you want.

IPL

IPL reduces eyelid inflammation that causes dry, itchy eyes. During treatment, light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, which targets the inflamed vessels and gently and effectively works with your skin type and condition to treat inflammation while maximizing safety and comfort.
