Dry eye is a debilitating condition that affects a large proportion of the population. Symptoms include stinging, burning, and/or watering eyes.
A major cause of dry eye is when the glands in the eyelids aren't producing oil effectively or efficiently, which is needed for a stable and healthy tear film. Thankfully we have an in-house treatment that can assist the oil glands in the lids to produce better quality oil. It's called the Blephasteam treatment!
