Refresh Your Eyes & Clear Your Vision at Bayside Eye Care

If you’re suffering from dry eye symptoms, we have solutions to offer. Lifestyle changes and eye drops may ease dry eye symptoms, but do not treat the root cause of the disease. We can provide more intensive care options.

Our Treatments

We use a variety of treatments to combat both the symptoms and causes of dry eye. These include:

Laser therapies have been used in the esthetic community to stimulate collagen and elastic production around the eye reducing fine lines and wrinkles. For dry eye therapy, we can use this technology to reduce inflammation on the eyelids from blepharitis, allergies and/or rosacea; to stimulate meibum (oil) production and to unclog meibomian glands. Thus, treating the leading causes of dry eyes (inflammatory and evaporative) at the source, with an added benefit of revitalizing your skin around your eyes. Our preferred treatments are:

    • Radiofrequency laser treatment (TempSure)
      •  To melt and express unhealthy or blocked meibomian glands which will ultimately improve tear quality and stability.
    • Intense pulsed light, or IPL (Icon)
      • To reduce lid inflammation and stimulate meibum (oil) production

LipiFlow Therapy helps remove blockages in the meibomian glands and stimulates an increase in lipid production which stabilizes the tear film and helps prevent rapid tear film evaporation.

AB Max BlepharoExfoliation, designed to treat debris and plaque build-up around the base of the eyelashes. This treat is indicated when an eyelid inflammation called blepharitis is causing dry eye symptoms.
