Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment Options - North Florida Cataract and Vision

Dry Eye Treatments

North Florida Cataract Specialists and Vision Care specializes in dry eye diagnosis and treatment through our Dry Eye Center of Excellence. Although Dry Eye Disease can't be cured, various treatment methods can assist in controlling your symptoms and providing relief.

LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction can be increasingly severe if not treated. LipiFlow is a 12-minute, FDA approved eyelid therapy that applies controlled heat and gentle pulsation to your glands. LipiFlow liquifies any clogged oils and evacuates them from your glands. Many patients find that the results of the treatment last at least 1-2 years.

Cliradex Complete

When meibomian glands are clogged, eyelids can be inflamed, known as blepharitis. This is often correlated with an abnormal number of Demodex mites living in or near eyelash hair follicles. Cliradex Complete isolates the main ingredient in tea tree oil (4-Terpineol) to eliminate Demodex. Our highly trained technicians apply this gel to the eyelashes and brush away any scurf remaining. You are then sent home with a box of Cliradex Lid Wipes to use once a day as maintenance.

Sometimes dry eye results in extensive scarring on the cornea. Prokera Slim is a safe and effective biologic corneal bandage that is inserted in-office. It is made up of a thin layer of cryopreserved amniotic membrane tissue, proven to accelerate the healing of damaged ocular surfaces.
