Our Treatment Methods

Punctal plugs are tiny medical devices, no larger than a grain of rice. They are inserted into either the top or bottom tear ducts—or both—to keep fluid from draining from the eyes.

When tears do not drain as quickly, they stay on the eye’s surface longer, keeping it moist and helping to relieve discomfort. They’re nearly invisible and insertion is quick and well-tolerated.

Punctal plugs come in temporary varieties that dissolve over time and are absorbed by the body, or semi-permanent varieties that are set a little deeper and can be removed if needed.

Keeping the eyelids clean is essential to maintaining eye health and moisture, particularly if you suffer from blocked meibomian glands. An in-office, advanced cleansing procedure for the eyelids, AB Max helps remove plaque and debris from the eyelid margin, helping to keep the meibomian glands free from blockages.

Unimpeded meibomian glands can more effectively produce the oil layer needed for high-quality tears.

Most patients report no discomfort during AB Max treatments. During your diagnostic, we will recommend an appropriate length of time between regular treatments for best results.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy was originally developed for use in dermatology. It is an innovative way to treat meibomian gland dysfunction.

During the treatment, light is used to help to liquefy blockages in the meibomian glands. Often, these blockages are caused by solidified meibum (oil) made by the glands. IPL softens this debris so it can be expressed. The light also targets inflammation, which can play a role in dry eye disease.

We use the Lumenis IPL device and the treatment takes place right in our office.

Meibomian gland expression is performed by a skilled optometrist who applies pressure to the upper and lower eyelids where the glands are located. The pressure helps to squeeze out any debris or blockages.

This procedure is simple and takes place in-office. It works well after an IPL treatment has softened any blockages.
