There are many triggers that perpetuate dry eye symptoms which is why it is very important to eliminate and treat these triggers. When exposed to dry, windy or smoky air, wear protective eyewear. Decrease screen time and take frequent breaks to blink while working on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Reduce contact lens wearing time and give the eyes a break for tear circulation. Change skincare and cosmetic products to those formulated for sensitive, dry eyes. These products are usually free of fragrances, parabens and GMOs. Treat and manage any medical conditions such as Sjrogren’s, arthritis, lupus, diabetes, thyroid disorders and rosacea.
Facial rosacea and ocular rosacea are commonly overlooked as a major driving force for evaporative dry eyes. Rosacea is easily treated and managed with Lumenis Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Clean your eyelid-eyelash margins daily to prevent bacteria and mite plaque buildup using an eye safe cleanser such as Zocular gel. TempSure Envi Radio-frequency (RF) therapy is a non-invasive, in-office treatment to unclog Meibomian glands. And be sure your diet supports dry eyes by incorporating anti-inflammatory foods and omega3 oil supplementation.
