How do you treat dry eyes?

Dry eyes can really interfere with your enjoyment and ease. You may find yourself constantly placing rewetting drops or rubbing your eyes to no avail.

At Envision Optical, we want to help you live your best life and enjoy eye comfort.

Your eye doctor in Burleigh Waters and Tweed Heads relies on diagnostic tests and experience to diagnose dry eyes. Depending on the cause of your condition, we formulate a custom treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

Our optometrist Andrew and his team may recommend one or more therapies to restore your eye moisture.

Treatments for dry eyes may include:

  • Advice on lifestyle or environmental changes
  • IPL therapy to promote eye moisture
  • Blephasteam heat therapy and gland expression to treat gland dysfunction
  • MGDRx EyeBag home therapy to promote moisture from the eye glands
  • Eye drops
  • Blephadex wipes to destroy Demodex mites
  • Lacrimal lavage to widen narrow tear ducts
  • Punctal plugs to help keep tears on the ocular surface
  • Nutrition that may promote better eye health
