Tear Care

The TearCare® System is intended for the application of localized heat therapy in adult patients with evaporative dry eye disease due to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), when used in conjunction with manual expression of the meibomian glands.

Punctal Plugs

This approach to treating dry eyes is plugging the openings to the tear ducts with tiny silicone plugs (AKA: punctal plugs). These plugs close the tiny opening (punctum) that you have in the inner corner of your upper and lower eyelids. The closure conserves both your own tears and artificial tears you may have added.


BlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eyecare professional or trained technician. A revolutionary new patented BlephEx® handpiece is used to very precisely spin a soft medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes. This procedure effectively removes years of accumulated bacterial biofilm, much like a dental cleaning removes accumulated plaque, also a biofilm. Once the biofilm is removed, your eyelids are cleaner and healthier. A healthy eyelid is critical for normal tear production.

IPL Dry Eye Treatment

IPL Dry Eye Treatment has emerged as a new treatment for those with dry eye syndrome. This procedure uses pulses of broad-spectrum light to target the root cause of dry eye. The treatment stimulates the meibomian glands which encourages proper secretion of tears. This improved tear film secretion alleviates the discomfort associated with dry eye. This treatment is non-invasive, safe, and convenient for those seeking dry eye relief.
