Red, Irritated Eyes? We CanHelp
Scratchy, heavy, red eyes can be more than just a daily hassle. While lotions and serums can deliver moisture and nutrients to your skin, your eyes rely on a natural tear film. The tear film is more than water and plays a vital role in maintaining healthy vision.
When your tear film lacks the components needed to control quality and comfort, we can help. At McCauley Dean Aesthetics, your complete wellness is our focus. With innovative technology like IPL therapy, we can customize a dry eye treatment plan tailored to your unique eye care needs.
Visit us today to experience long-lasting dry eye relief.
What Is Dry Eye?
Dry eye is a common condition in which your eyes don’t produce enough tears or quality components to keep the surface lubricated and nourished. Without sufficient moisture, dry eye can cause:
- Blurry vision
- Stinging or burning
- Gritty or scratchy sensations
- A feeling of something in the eye
- Light sensitivity
- Watery eyes
What Causes Dry Eye?
While there is no single cause for dry eye, common causes include age-related changes, genetics, environmental factors (like windy or dry weather), certain medications, and extended computer use.
Dry eye sensations can come and go, but chronic symptoms can worsen over time without treatment, increasing the risk of eye infections or vision impairment.
How Is Dry Eye Treated?
When dealing with dry eye, figuring out the cause is crucial in determining effective treatment. How we approach evaporative dry eye (poor tear quality) can differ from an approach to aqueous deficient dry eye (poor tear quantity).
Our eye care team can test your tear film and discuss lifestyle factors to get to the root of the issue. From there, we’ll create a tailored plan to restore moisture to the surface of your eyes.
Common treatment options may include:
- Using eye drops or eye masks
- Reducing screen time
- Avoiding smoke and windy areas
- Using a humidifier in your home
IPL for Dry Eye
Technology can be a game-changer for longer-lasting dry eye relief.
Our in-office IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment targets the main root cause of evaporative dry eye (when the eyes produce poor-quality tears). The gentle warmth helps improve the flow of natural oils the tear film needs to retain moisture.
Like IPL for skin rejuvenation, the light pulses can stimulate collagen, a protein that repairs cells and controls immune response—including inflammation linked to poor oil flow. Reducing inflammation and restoring the balance of oils on the eye’s surface can alleviate dry eye symptoms.
