Dry Eye Treatment in El Paso, TX

What is Dry Eye Disease?

Dry eye disease, also known as dry eye syndrome, is an uncomfortable but common eye condition. Your eyes either don’t produce enough tears, or your tears are poor quality and evaporate too fast, to hydrate your eyes: this happens when your tears don’t have enough mucus, water, or oil. Causes include allergies, meibomian gland dysfunction, overuse of digital screens, and dry, hot weather.

Common symptoms of dry eye disease can include:

  • Sore, heavy, or fatigued eyes
  • Itchy, red, or watery eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Light sensitivity

How Do We Diagnose Dry Eye Disease?

Our diagnostic process starts with an assessment and focuses on getting to the root of what is causing your dry eye. We use specialized diagnostic technology to examine your meibomian glands, which are oil-producing glands on your eyelids that are prone to infection or clogging; the quality of your tears, including how long they stay on your eye; and other factors to find the source of your dry eye.

What Does Our Dry Eye Treatment Include?

We have many ways to treat dry eye, including trusted solutions like prescription eye drops and supplements to improve eye health and function, as well as advanced treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a 15-minute treatment that revitalizes your meibomian glands with gentle light pulses. Depending on the severity of your condition, your doctor may recommend several of the multiple solutions that we have at our disposal.
